During a recent conversation with Shannon Sharpe, DJ Khaled addressed Tony Yayo’s story about Khaled refusing to shake his hand.

Around the 1:13:37 mark, DJ Khaled explained that Tony Yayo showed up at his studio. Tony claimed to have come in peace, but DJ Khaled knew that his presence would cause tension between Tony and his friend, Fat Joe, who was beefing with G-Unit. DJ Khaled, known for his strong sense of loyalty, couldn’t bring himself to embrace Tony, knowing that it would betray his friendship with Fat Joe.

Ultimately, DJ Khaled chose not to shake Tony’s hand, and he stated that he believes he made the right decision, although it wasn’t easy.
