Because what can’t DJ Khaled do ?
DJ Khaled seems to be the latest big name to join Marvel’s universe. Recently, Khaled shared footage of himself on the New York set of Spider-Man: Homecoming all while a picture of him with Marvel’s Stan Lee and actor Tom Holland also surfaced online.

It is unclear at present what Khaled’s role in the movie will entail. But back in 2015, a leaked email saw a Sony executive pitch ways to make Spider-Man appeal to Millenials to then-CEO Amy Pascal. The email from Nick Shore mentioned both Snapchat, a key part of Khaled’s brand, and also a “killer DJ” to soundtrack Spidey’s moves.
Grateful more than ever
DJ Khaled has been a very busy man in 2017. The Snapchat king is currently working on his next music project called Grateful. The collection will boast cameos from Rihanna, Drake and Beyonce, plus his all-star single, “I’m The One” with Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Quavo and Justin Bieber. Khaled also released a new single, “Glow Up,” featuring Quavo, DJ Khaled, Missy Elliott and Mary J. Blige.
Meanwhile, DJ Khaled and his prince, Asahd, are the latest cover star for the Spring issue of XXL magazine.
