PHOTOS VIDEO DJ Khaled’s tour bus catches fire, explodes prior to Grad Bash Orlando show

DJ Khaled tour bus explodes in Florida

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!

Here are a few exterior and interior photos of the Khaled Zeppelin prior to its fiery demise:
