DJ Khaled and his crew were en route to their scheduled performance at 2012 Grad Bash in Orlando Friday night when their tour bus caught fire and then exploded. The 36-year-old rapper, radio personality, and President of Def Jam South shared the photo above on Twitter along with the tweet:
I’m sry I couldn’t make it 2 grad bash it was out my control my tour bus caught on fire & blew up! The gd thing me & my team is ok!
There are no further details about the incident at this time, so we’re not sure what started the fire. We do have a little info about the luxurious ride though, thanks to a 2010 video in which DJ Khaled himself gives fans a guided tour of his “new” bus:
“I was sick of renting tour buses, because that s**t is expensive,” he says in the clip. “What I did was bought me a new tour bus. We going to be on the road a lot, we going to be in them clubs a lot and we going to be in them stadiums a lot. We’re going to be everywhere. This is the way we got to travel, so I wanted to do it right.”
Let’s just hope “doing it right” included having a great insurance policy!
