Like many social media frenzies and phenomenons, DJ Khaled's rise to reigning social media king seemed to happen FAST. I am from Miami, DJ Khaled's hometown, and a few months ago I started to hear my brother, cousins, and random friends talking about the "major keys." I was still not enlightened enough to what they were talking about so I ignored it for a bit — until it got too big to ignore. Turns out the 40-year-old producer's Snapchat was becoming an inspirational medium for many viewers, so I did some digging to figure out what DJ Khaled's Snapchat name was, so I could become part of the conversation.
It looks like October 2015 marked the beginning of the DJ Khaled Snapchat phenomenon, when he posted an Instagram with the caption featuring his Snapchat username: "Follow me on snapchat djkhaled305 I just let a snap go."
Well, that name is pretty straightforward and easy for people to find, which is a big contrast to Justin Bieber's snapchat name, "rickthesizzler." (I won't even begin to ask about that one.) Khaled's mini-motivational snaps have made a dent in culture, recently in the form of a speech for Jeb Bush in a Jimmy Kimmel sketch. The keys are real, y'all!
Now that you know DJ Khaled's snapchat name, here is some of the best advice and keys to success you can expect to hear form him on the daily if you give him a follow.
