DJ Khaled recently spoke on a few different subjects during an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, including working with Jay Z, Drake and his desire to sign Remy Ma to his ‘We The Best‘ label.

During the interview Khaled was asked which artist has been the most difficult to work with so far and he named Drake and Jay Z.

“I wouldn’t say the most difficult, but somebody that wants it to be perfect and it’s good cause the end result it’s gonna be a hit,” Khaled said in a video posted on HotNewHipHop.com. “Drake would be somebody that you know, you would have to—You gon’ have to really wanna do it or it gotta be the right situation or the right time. You know what I’m saying? Hov, it took me five years to get Hov. It took my five years to get Hov, but with Hov I just kept telling him I wanna do something. He ain’t never tell me ‘no.’ He ain’t never tell me ‘yes.’ But he at one point was like ‘Yo, when we get the right record and the right time we’ll do it. You know what I’m saying?’ Cause we do have a relationship. So, I was just like ‘Let me keep hustling.’ I worked with him on other projects. Been to the studio with him and vibing and that’s my dawg…When he finally said ‘Let’s do it,’ it took me like two years to get it done. But it was like five total.” (HipHopDX)

Khaled also spoke on the possibilities of him signing Remy Ma to his ‘We The Best’ label.

“You know, Remy Ma my sis,” Khaled said. “We was talking while she was in and she told me—She was supposed to come out a day before. So, she told me she was coming to see me the day after. So, I told her—When she did come out I didn’t know she actually got out. She called me. She was in the whip leaving, I guess, the spot. And I was like ‘Remy, you know what? You just got home. Spend time with your family. And we’ll hookup later. You know what I’m saying? I’mma go to Toronto and come back.’ She’s like ‘Nah, I’m coming to see you.’ I was like ‘Great.’ I was in the studio. So, she came by the studio with some fly boots on and her hair did, chains. Like she ain’t never left…Obviously, the [first] thing I was talking about is like ‘Yo, I want you to be on We The Best.’ Absolutely. I’m not hiding it. It ain’t no secret. I’m on my job to try to sign her. It ain’t been done. I’m trying…I’m sure she’s weighing out her options and stuff.” (HipHopDX)
