Khalil Abdul-Rahman, better known by his stage name DJ Khalil, is a Los Angeles based American hip hop/soul record producer, and is the instrumental half of the hip hop duo Self Scientific, together with rapper Chace Infinite. He is perhaps best known for his production work on rapper Eminem's 2010 album Recovery, producing four tracks. Along with Liz Rodrigues, Erik Alcock and Pranam 'Chin' Injeti, he is a member of the music group The New Royales.
He is the third born son of former UCLA player and coach and NBA player Walt Hazzard.
DJ Khalil has established a couple of well recognizable elements in his productions. He often uses analog drum sounds and adds Cymbals on the every beat of his four-four time loops to create some kind of march rhythm. Khalils production feature heavily filtered synthesizer leads and choir pads which serve as an antithesis to the warm drum sounds. Another common element in his productions are space effects.
On his more recent productions, an increasing use of analog instruments like electric guitars is apparent.
Singer Kobe is often featured as a hook singer for Khalils productions. The former can be heard on an early demo of "I'll still kill" by 50 Cent, singing the chorus that would be eventually replaced by Akon.
