Following its release on June 23rd, 2017, DJ Khaled’s recent tenth studio album Grateful continues to remain within the top five of the Billboard 200. Earlier this week, it was revealed that DJ Khaled would be performing at the New York State Fair at Chevy Court on August 26th, 2017. Apparently, he received another and cancelled his New York State Fair performance in favor of performing on the MTV Video Music Awards. As of lately, DJ Khaled’s name has also been circulating within the sneaker community ever since he showcased his Air Jordan 8 “Cool Grey” pair.
Back in mid-June, Jordan Brand surprised the entire sneaker community by unveiling some of the prominent Jordan releases 2017 from their Fall Retro Collection. Based on what Jordan Brand revealed, the collection included an Air Jordan 1 High, three tonal Air Jordan 2 Decon suede iterations, two Air Jordan 11 Low IE colorways and the Air Jordan 13 “History of Flight.” Also included were two Air Jordan 8 iterations, one of which was the Air Jordan 8 “Cool Grey.” This was the first time that sneakerheads got an official look at the sneaker and two months later, DJ Khaled seems to have a pair of the sneaker.
