DJ Khaled has announced the title of his upcoming seventh album. In a video interview, Khaled shared the title of the project-- Suffering From Success. The title came from a doctor's opinion that he was pushing himself to the point of damaging his health.
"We just got done turning in [Rick] Ross' album, and people don't realize, when you turn in an album, it's a lot of work behind the scenes," he recalled. "At that time, I'm running around and I notice…a big bald spot [on my beard]. I'm acting like I don't want to see it, I'm brushing it away and it kept getting it bigger and bigger. When I finally got home off the road, I was like, 'I'ma go to the doctors'…[the doctor] said [it's a disorder] that comes from your nerves and your stress, but [she] gave me some medication."
"Through that whole process while I'm at the doctor's, my phone's ringing, I'm dealing with marketing people, I'm dealing with lawyers…she found out who I was, and after watching that 45 minute doctor's session, she grabbed my shoulder and she just goes, 'Son, you're suffering from success,'" he said. "I looked at her and was like, 'That might be the realest thing you can tell me.'"
