    “The Don, my nigga, the don!”

  • Man i f*ckin hate Khaled….I swear he has no role in the whole stuff and album ! At least if he would have produced the beat and the rest of the beats…but what the f*ck does he do ? He yells DEEEJAAAAY KHAAAALEEEEEDDD on the intro or we the best….Maaan f*ck that shit ! He just hangs on the others work

  • DASHBOARD

    THIS FAT FUCK WILL HYPE UP A BABY SHOWER HIM AND FLEX GOT THE WORST VOICES IN THE WORLD

  • Kevin

    He is really fucking excited about this track. Haha

  • tvr

    its quite daresay, “sweet” to see his child like enthusiasm for a song lol at least he kept his presence on the track small though, i dig this joint

  • cam

    Just for the record… I been sayin “I’m on one'” fa like a year… P.S. why the fuck is Khaled even in the music industry?!?!?! FUCK!!!

  • marty mcfly

    The reason Khaled is excited is because he makes money off music and hes a DJ so he can spin his on shit on Radio and then collect the money. So you got one guy eating off both sides of the table. HELLO

  • marty mcfly

    Spin his OWN shit…

  • Boricua

    Dazed one productions sucks at editin cuz they had the bass on max in the beginin and end

  • ?jhijhjjjhjhjh

    “The Don, my nigga, the don!”

    this.

  • NiggaDaz

    Niggas can say whatever they want bout Khaled and his songs (which usually haven’t been that much), but this song goes man… Been bumpin this shit since it came out.

  • Weve been sayin “Im On One” in san francisco for almost 10 years.

  • Oak

    Meanwhile, somewhere at Def Jam…
    ______

    Record exec: Hey, let’s put a bunch of shitty artists on one song! That should increase their buzz!

    DJ Khaled: OH SWEET CAN WE PUT IT ON MY ALBUM? PPLEASE OH PRETTY PLEASE?? WE GLOBAL! FOREVER! TIMES INFINITY!

    Record Exec: Khaled, I’m right next to you; there’s no need—

    DJ Khaled: WE THE BESSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTT. I DO THIS FOR THE STREETS, I DO THIS FOR THE GHETTO, I DO THIS FOR ALL THOSE STRUGGLING SUBURBAN KIDS WHO ONLY GET AN ALLOWANCE TWICE A MONTH!!!!!!

  • Tron

    First song that officially sets off the Summer. They got one with this one… mark my words. It’s gonna be bumpin’ out of every stereo speaker soon.

  • c

    thsi fat foo is ghyped on the words We on One lol fakun lame u late fat fuck lol talib kweli just came out with a song called im on one that was like 4 months ago

  • trurace

    so what exactly did dj khaled do to contribute to this song…. I thought this video would explain.

  • zbMrOG

    khaled is stoked cause big name rappers keep him employed..heard Weezy GAVE HIM this track (what a waste). He cant even open a bottle of champagne…yea the track is dope but khaled is retarded

  • Thank Me

    Soooo …Im still trying to figure out what the hell khaled’s role in the process is

  • D

    Drake and 40 are like: “Another day in the office.”

  • califreshness

    wtf does it matter who been sayin “i’m on one” the longest?!? it’s a common phrase. hell Mausberg used the phrase on “Get Nekkid” ft Dj Quik & El Debarge in like ’99 or ’00. bottom line is this track goes H.A.M. & Khaled punk ass just got BLESSED with a platinum record & didn’t have to lift a finger. i’d be drinkin champagne too!!!

  • 5thletterart

    Khaled=Diddy, dont make the beat, cant write lyrics, just jump on the track and talk sh*t.

  • im.on.her

    hes excited cuz the song dnt sound like all the other BS he puts out

  • JaseG

    okay this is probally the only khaled track that i have ever liked…but im still confused.. can someone tell me what khaled’s role was in the track, except shouting DJ KHALEDDDDDD! lol
