This we celebrate the Florida Sultan, DJ Khaled, once again. This go around we revive the 2011 hit record that brought Khaled and Rick Ross‘  their first Grammy nod and truly solidified Khaled as the rap game’s premiere orchestrater, “I’m On One”. Also featuring the front runners, Drake and Lil Wayne, who were unsurprisingly still on a long stretch of chart domination during that time.  As usual, the We The Best head-honcho called upon Gil Green to provide the lavish visuals for this star studded event of a track, which premiered during the 2011 BET Awards. “I’m On One” was an immediate radio, club and overall smash record. Going on to sell over 1.8 million copies and gaining platinum certification and peaking to #10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. Billboard also ranked it at #17 on their list of 20 Best Songs of 2011. This single could clearly be the reason behind his follow up album, Suffering From Success, because after this he could literally do no wrong on the charts and on airwaves. So today we just want to show our thanks and gratitude for DJ Khaled and the hits like this that he brought to the world.
