It was only a matter of time before DJ Khaled’s Snapchat-geared words of wisdom found themselves on paper. The mastermind behind gems like “Don’t ever play yourself” and “Cocoa butter is the key,” has unveiled his plans to drop a self-help book titled The Keys.

Announced via Instagram, The Keys will be released on November 22, and is currently available for pre-order. Jay Z, Puff Daddy and 300 Entertainment exec Lyor Cohen are among the music industry heavies who have lent their “mogul talk” for the book.

In his Instagram upload, Khaled provided some insight into what fans can expect from The Keys.

“THEY tried to hide the keys from me when I was coming up,” DJ Khaled wrote. “Now I’ve mastered the keys and I want to let everybody know that these are keys from my perspective. This book will help you follow your vision as long as you have passion, dedication, blood, sweat and tears, and especially ignore when THEY try to bring you down. Major Key, I wish I had this book when I was coming up. This my passion pain success ,blessing and more wins !! We the best.”


News of The Keys comes months after DJ Khaled released his Major Key album. Boasting guest appearances from the likes of Nas, Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj, Major Key debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

DJ Khaled’s The Keys book will be released through Penguin Random House subsidiary, Crown Archetype.
