Early life Khaled was born on November 26, 1975, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Palestinian parents who had immigrated to the United States. His brother Alec Ledd (Alla Khaled) is an actor.[4] He has described himself as a devout Muslim.[5] His parents were musicians and played Arabic music. Khaled started developing an interest in rap and soul music at a young age, and his parents supported his interest. He worked in a local record store which helped to lay foundations for his music career.[6][7] Career During his early career, Khaled became acquainted with several young artists and helped them before their breakthrough; these include Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Mavado.
