The podcast game has certainly heated up in the last one year or so.
While we wait for Joe Budden to make his next move after his departure from Spotify with his podcast, DJ Khaled is preparing to release his own show called The First One on Amazon Music on Thursday, Oct. 15. The podcast is developed by Amazon Music and the Springhill Company, the media company created by NBA superstar LeBron James and his longtime business partner Maverick Carter.

DJ Khaled will interview his all-time favorite artists about the hits that made them iconic and eventually legendary. Watch the official trailer above which reveals some of the initial guest lineup: Rick Ross, Jon Bon Jovi, Big Sean, Kelly Rowland, Lil Wayne and more.
“I’m recording my podcast with the greatest musicians of all time, and with some of my best friends who also happen to be the most iconic artists on the planet,” said DJ Khaled. “We’ll talk about fame, fortune, life, and success. These stories are here to motivate you because everybody starts from somewhere, from the ordinary to extraordinary. Before you get to another one, you got to get to ‘The First One,’ only on Amazon Music.”
