DJ Khaled Says He Wants To Sign Remy Ma, Talks Jay Z

DJ Khaled

Fresh off the release of his “Hold You Down” single, DJ Khaled stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about his latest moves… including wanting to sign newly released Remy Ma.

Since tasting freedom, one of Remy’s first moves was getting into the studio with Khaled for the “They Don’t Love You No More (Remix)” … and now, the DJ reveals his hopes to sign her to his We The Best imprint.

“You know, Remy Ma my sis,” Khaled said. “… I told her — when she did come out, I didn’t know she actually got out. She called me. She was in the whip leaving, I guess, the spot. And I was like ‘Remy, you know what? You just got home. Spend time with your family. And we’ll hookup later. You know what I’m saying? I’mma go to Toronto and come back.’ She’s like ‘Nah, I’m coming to see you.’ I was like ‘Great.’ I was in the studio. So, she came by the studio with some fly boots on and her hair did, chains. Like she ain’t never left… Obviously, the [first] thing I was talking about is like ‘Yo, I want you to be on We The Best.’ Absolutely. I’m not hiding it. It ain’t no secret. I’m on my job to try to sign her. It ain’t been done. I’m trying… I’m sure she’s weighing out her options and stuff.”

Also, he named Drake and Jay Z when asked who the most difficult artist he’s worked with is. While he made it clear they’re not difficult, per se, he says it took time to get their collabos finalized. With Jay Z, specifically, it took five years.

“I wouldn’t say the most difficult, but somebody that wants it to be perfect and it’s good cause the end result it’s gonna be a hit,” Khaled said. “Drake would be somebody that you know, you would have to — You gon’ have to really wanna do it or it gotta be the right situation or the right time. Hov, it took me five years to get Hov. It took me five years to get Hov, but with Hov I just kept telling him I wanna do something. He ain’t never tell me ‘no.’ He ain’t never tell me ‘yes.’ But he, at one point, was like ‘Yo, when we get the right record and the right time, we’ll do it.’ We do have a relationship, so I was just like ‘Let me keep hustling.’ I worked with him on other projects. Been to the studio with him and vibing and that’s my dawg …. When he finally said ‘Let’s do it,’ it took me like two years to get it done. But it was like five total.”

The song was the “Go Hard (Remix),” which features Jay Z, Kanye West, and T-Pain. He stated that Jay was supposed to appear on the original version of the record, but he never received the verse Jay recorded.
