    I still don't understand why this guy even exists on the music scene...

  • RavelleRavelle Registered User regular
    Every bit of performance I've seen from him, it had a completely dead audience.

    I think the better question is why people keep inviting him.

    It just sort of feeds on itself at this point, people keep seeing him in stuff so they think he's popular, like comedian Kevin Hart

    Is there a game, or is this just general commentary on Khaled?

    What is this I don't even.
  • zepherinzepherin Registered User regular
    The preview was right at his dick. I thought this was going to be about DJ Khaled leathery cock.

    Bait and switch bait and switch.

    Waiiiit a minute... are you Katt Williams?!



    Also, both Kevin Hart and DJ Khaled are hugely popular. Not so much a fan of Khaled, afaik, other people actually sing his songs while he just screams his name. Kevin Hart is a funny guy, though. I like him.

    Khaled does post some funny stuff on his instagram account, though. Like when he's annoying his wife.

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    I have never heard of DJ Khaled until reading this thread.

    I thought this was a comic about the new GTA Online After Hours update, in which players can purchase a club and hire DJs and stuff.

    He was the musical guest for the Overwatch finals, it was an odd choice.

    First heard of him when he chose the tracks for the NBA 2k game a few years back. Got so sick of hearing him scream his name in that stupid annoying screech.

    He did a couple of interviews for the game too. The guy came across as a giant poser.

    Re: Tycho's news post.

    "Mainstream" is a spectrum. It's sad to chase that mainstream recognition in the same way that it's sad (and self-defeating) to try too hard to be one of the "cool kids" when you were in high school, but it's a very human urge.

    Blizzard's long courted the mainstream. Remember the WoW TV commercials as it became a pop culture moment?

    There's definite commercial value to doing so for them especially with Overwatch and how hard they're pushing eSports. But there's also the matter that the Blizzard folks are people and often like popular music. He's hardly the first musical act they've booked for an event.

    if you want a hilarious example of a firm trying to 'court the mainstream,' look no further than the headline musical acts at blizzcon over the years

    that said, I feel like there's a meta-joke to be made here about making fun of DJ Khaled in 2018

    I dunno, Foo Fighters and Ozzy really didn't need to court anyone, did they? That said, it was the first time I was able to see Metallica live so I don't feel dirty about them shilling a little. :twisted:

    One of the best columns in a while. The reason good things get mainstreamized in a way that breaks their goodness is because they are built by passionate people whose motivation is quality, but then co-opted by greedheads whose motivation is greed. It's the same problem we have in politics. I mean, the House of Representatives is basically 435 DJ Khaleds.

    After reading about it, by all accounts his show was legitimately bad even if you enjoy some pop now and again.

    It also makes this comic feel more like one of those political cartoons where there's no image gag, just a bunch of text making an obvious statement.

    The preferred nomenclature is "greedos".

    And sometimes you gotta mix things up. Frontalot cannot be at every concert. And crazy artists throw crazy concerts. Khalede is a crazy artist that is popular. So I can see why they booked him. He was a dud, it happens. I went to a Manson concert and he went on for 40 minutes, and was done. Just dueced out. Not only that we had to wait 35 minutes for him to get on, and the opening band (I think it was Powerman 5000) was on for an 1:45.

    So I can see why they booked him, and sometimes concerts are disappointing.
