DJ Khaled's Keys to Success on The Daily Show

Posted on

Comedy Central

Rapper, producer, and Snapchat prophet DJ Khaled brought his motivational words of wisdom to The Daily Show.

As viewers of his Snapchat stories know, Khaled’s sneaker closet is a meticulously organized, multicolored visual representation of his success β€” and nothing says Keys to Success more than renaming your Air Jordans things like, “Don’t Play Yourself,” “Give Thanks to the Most High,” and even “Hotline Bling.”

In the segment featuring Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj, Khaled shares some nigh incomprehensible β€” but no less soothing β€” advice, after Minhaj breaks down in jealous tears over a particularly magnificent pair of sneakers: “The key to success is to keep your head above water. See, this [is] the key: knowing is better than learning. I know that’s kind of weird. You might have to learn to know. But just know: what you know is better than learning. And I know. Just know. Know that. All right?” All right. 

Check out the clip above, because they don’t want you to.
