"I'm going all out," he added. "It's gonna be nothing but love, energy and fun. The key to success is just being myself. When I talked to the VMAs and MTV family, [they said] that's what they wanted me to do -- to bring the Khaled vibe. I'ma give you that cloth talk. I'ma give you them keys -- the keys to more wins, more success and more blessings."
