A new album and number one single aren’t the only headlines Khlaed has made this month. Recently, L.A. Reid stepped down from his position as the head of Epic Records and according to reports, DJ Khaled is eyeing the job.
A source revealed, “He was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’ ”
Though, the dream seems unlikely, while Khaled is a huge name in music, he’s not fitting for a corporate job, according to insiders.
“Khaled is a big hype machine — not a person who’s running a record label,” said the source. “My guess is Sony Music UK CEO Jason Iley will run either Columbia or Epic or they will take RCA president Tom Corson . . . and put him at Columbia or Epic.”
