Schawbel: Throughout your career you have aligned yourself with some of the best artists in the world, How do you select which artists to work with and which to avoid?
DJ Khaled: Man I just work with good people that I like making good music with, each record I just go with the vibe but aside from the vibe of the music I have to make sure I vibe with the person.

DJ Khaled also appeared on Snoop Dogg‘s new show with Martha Stewart “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” and it had to be the most hilarious thing ever!
Special guest such as Robin Thicke and Keke Palmer stopped by first, and then Khaled spotted by later. The theme of the episode was sleepwear, and DJ Khaled drops in with some silk PJs with his stomach showing! Ms. Martha wasn’t with it LOL, she proceeded to say “We’re cooking here!!“.
Towards the end, at the sit down dinner segment of the show, Martha asks DJ Khaled what he eats for breakfast? He proceeds to say, “Egg white, Turkey bacon and…” and Martha interrupts him by throwing the biggest shadiness palm tree there is, she says something like “we know you’re eating more than just egg white” LOL or something along the lines.
Of course Khaled states, “They don’t want us to eat Martha!”
The episode was hilarious to say the less!!
