For years, DJ Khaled was the most successful non-rapper when it came to dropping rap albums.
But there’s a new non-rapping sheriff in town.
Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains had a better start than any of Khaled’s many projects and is about to break Khaled’s record for most consecutive top-five finishes for a non-rapping producer.

The good news for Khaled is that his record for consecutive top five finishes for a non-rapping, non-producing producer is probably safe forever.
