DJ Khaled has been a big name ever since his massive 2010 hit “All I Do Is Win,” but the producer has rocketed to even greater fame recently thanks to a prolific Snapchat presence. Every day, Khaled sends fans videos of himself watering his plants, eating breakfast, water-skiing, and going about daily life while delivering inspirational messages about the “keys to success.” 

So when DJ Khaled appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night, the host had him record advice for someone who could really use it: Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. Now lagging in the polls, Bush was also called out recently by Gawker for apparently wearing the same sweater four days in a row. Khaled took time to reiterate Bush’s grave position (“S— got real for you, Jeb Bush. They don’t want you to win”) before pushing the candidate on the path to self-actualization.

“Be a player, don’t play yourself,” Khaled said. “And don’t play basketball. That’s not your sport, Jeb Bush.”

It remains to be seen whether this advice will have the poll effect Kimmel predicts. Watch the full clip below.
