Nobody really knows what DJ Khaled does.

But if his latest move works, we will all have a better idea.

According to Page 6, Khaled is lobbying for LA Reid's old CEO post at Epic.

Reid left the label earlier this month in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

“[Khaled] was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’ ” an industry insider told Page 6.
However, another insider told Page 6 it's probably not going to happen.

“Khaled is a big hype machine — not a person who’s running a record label,” said a source. “My guess is [Sony Music UK CEO] Jason Iley will run either Columbia or Epic or they will take [RCA president] Tom Corson . . . and put him at Columbia or Epic.”
There is also talk that Epic may be folded into another label, like RCA.

Do you think Khaled could pull off being CEO?
