Correct pronunciation: "kha-leed"
Common mispronunciation: "khaled"
In 2007 on the song "We Takin' Over," Fat Joe exclaimed: "Some say Khaled, some say Kha-leed!" Joe was referring to the mispronunciation of DJ Khaled's name, but this line is still helpful a decade later, because Khalid is prounced Khaleed, but some still say Khaled.
This guy in my class pronounced Khalid like Khaled and I cringed.— niya. (@janny3much) July 14, 2017
