DJ Khaled and Nardwuar Reminisce About Miami Legends and Share Keys to Success
DJ Khaled is a modern day Snapchat legend and arguably the most animated producer ever. Nardwuar is known affectionately as the Human Serviette. Together, these two huge personalities joined forces for one hilarious conversation during SXSW 2016 this past week (March 17).
The 20-minute meet up happened backstage of Nas' Mass Appeal BBQ in Austin, Texas, and consisted of Nardwuar and Khaled comparing Miami strip clubs, going through old Miami records on vinyl and Nardwuar stunning the "Mogul Talk" star with how much he knew about his past, particularly his bus boy days at Southern restaurant chain Shoney's. With Khaled being the king of motivational catch phrases, the Carol City-bred spinner got sentimental when talking about his humble beginnings.
"You not working with the people right?" asked a suspicious Khaled before diving into his story of winning $5,000 in a local DJ contest. "I always knew to give up, never surrender, never give up. It took me from bus-boying to now."
The juiciest tidbit of the interview came when Narduwar asked if Notorious B.I.G. ever heard the beats that Khaled passed to DJ Clark Kent for him. And of course, Khaled took a moment right in the middle of the interview to Snapchat the experience for his fans.
Nardwuar has a history of stumping hip-hop's biggest names by digging up the most obscure facts. Some of Nardwuar's recent hip-hop highlights include divulging iLoveMakonnen's fandom for Shania Twain and giving fans one of the most quotable Future interviews the world never knew it needed. Sensational.
The popular 47-year-old Canadian personality suffered a stroke in December of last year and hip-hop showed their support. Check out Khaled and Nardwuar's hilarious conversation in it's entirety up top. Bless up!
