Record producer, executive and hype man DJ Khalid is being roasted online for some of the most horrendous guitar playing in the history of mankind. DJ Khalid was gifted an acoustic guitar from the family of Bob Marley, only to strum the instrument with the grace of a serial killer beating someone to death with a hammer.
Giving credit where it’s due, DJ Khalid is one of the most accomplished pop music producers of the last 15 years, releasing multi-platinum hits with artists like Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Drake, T-Pain and many others. With that said, let’s watch this fool get roasted on Twitter.
DJ Khalid received a Guild A-20 Bob Marley Dreadnought acoustic guitar from the family of the late reggae icon. The axe retails for roughly $399, so what DJ Khalid inflicted upon the guitar isn’t completely unforgivable, but for anyone who actually plays guitar, the video below will prove difficult to watch.
DJ Khalid was rightfully dragged on Twitter thanks to his performance. Here’s a collection of reactions:
