RE: DJ Khaled
Of course DJ Khaled doesn't "care" about WKU, but he's talking about us and our head coach and that's good enough for recruits and college students. Let me rephrase: let us know the next time anyone moderately famous puts a video on the internet mentioning your school and Rick Stockstill to aid in recruiting. Better?

No. DJ Kahled is a big deal. I would imagine 4-6 out of every 10 hip-hop/R&B songs over the past 5 years have had his influence on those tracks.

He is not a rapper, but a DJ; he produces music. The comparison to Biggie is misplaced. Khaled is this hip hop generation's version of Funkmaster Flex, DJ Clue, or Swizz Beatz (these 3 dudes are all considered hip-hop giants).

On the song you mentioned, you should have noticed he doesn't rap at all...that track, like any track that he headlines, enlist other rappers to perform over a beat he created.

If you are not into hip-hop, even casually, you very likely would not know who he is.

I can for certainty say, likely 80% of this younger generation know who he is...and in the case for WKU, this is a big deal for them...whether it's just a promo spot or he genuinely just repped for them.

RE: DJ Khaled
I have seen him on twitter but I honestly don't know who he is either. That season of my life is over. In my 20s I knew who all of the hip hop, grunge, country and whoever was famous. I took a queue from Snoop Dogg and put my mind on MY money. Not other peoples'.

RE: DJ Khaled
As a college aged person let me assure you that DJ Khaled is a very big deal. I don't listen to that genre of music and couldn't name one song he was involved in but I know who he is and anyone my age would.

Very cool to get him involved with WKU even if insincere.

He's not even Pharrel, no way is he remembered alongside pioneers, especially the likes of Funkmaster Flex.

Perhaps if he actually made an appearance on your campus wearing your gear, that would have been a "big deal", but his assistant holding his phone while he throws out buzzwords and coach speak?

I realize it's the offseason, but c'mon...
