Once upon a time there a show called Total Request Live on MTV and it was there, ten years ago, DJ Khaled gave the world a first look at his hit single, “We Takin’ Over” featuring Akon, TIP, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, and Birdman.
As a twenty-something-year-old, it seems like just yesterday I was cruising in my beat up Honda Civic blasting this tune when in reality it was an ENTIRE. DECADE. AGO. Since then (it goes without saying) Khaled has released countless hit records. He also recently rose as one of the most inspirational and influential artists out with his “major keys” and even more major social media presence. Still, we can look back at a time before the ’gram broke news and Twitter ran lives. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Enjoy.
In case you still feel like it wasn’t too long ago, take a look at how much the artists on the track have evolved in the past decade.
