Khaled bin Abdul Khaled -- DJ Khaled for short -- is turning 36 this month, and the legendary radio personality, label executive, and accomplished music producer will be celebrating the date of his birth in prime Washington Avenue style.
However, it's highly unlikely that we'll catch the following people poppin' bottles and toasting Khaled's health on the evening of November 26.
Last month, New Times columnist and booty music pioneer Luther Campbell blasted Khaled and Lil Wayne for not "investing anything into the community." In his weekly column, Campbell gave Khaled and his homies a January 1 deadline, threatening to "have their Miami card revoked" if the chubby hypeman and the rest don't pony up some charitable dough.
In August, DJ Khaled singed a deal with Cash Money Records. But Weezy, his YMCMB labelmate, "ain't feeling Khaled rite now." At least that was the sentiment when Lil Tunechi responded to Luke's aforementioned ultimatum via Twitter.

Headed by Colin Dickinson and Kevin Gwinn, the "I Fucking Hate DJ Khaled"Facebook group is a public forum where people are encouraged to freely and wantonly shit on Khaled. For example, Ryan "Keiloo" Keil calls Khaled a "no talented fat fuck" and Noah Pitts thinks he should "take a nap on a railroad track."
Happy Birthday, Khaled!
