Walker Stillman sure knows how to make a jump shot look effortless.

DJ Khaled is more than just a DJ. He wants to give you the major key to success. He wants you to follow him on the path to more success.

Khaled offers fans snippets of advice to life’s everyday trivialities, utilizing the key emoji (?), which has since exploded in popularity.
