If you're a fan of DJ Khaled's, then you already know he is full of little pearls of wisdom — he often shares them through his social media. But, the music mogul is now sharing some important words for graduating seniors via a speech part of iHeartRadio's "Commencement: Speeches For The Class of 2020" podcast.

Though the Class of 2020 won't be able to experience a formal graduation ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic, they should be proud to be "among the greatest generation in history," as stated by Khaled himself.

In DJ Khaled's commencement speech, he tells students that "this will be the most talked about year, and also the most talked about graduation ever," but that they should be proud because "you made it." He explained:

"Forget about everything else right now. You will be remembered among the greatest generation in history. The world changed in 2020, we all know that, but you? You're gonna change it forever. Right now, I'm addressing all the doctors, educators, architects, lawyers, creators, innovators, leaders of tomorrow. And yeah, even Presidents — probably a few of y'all are gonna be the President. Yeah, I'm talking about you. And all of y'all are superstars. You've shown your strength, you've shown your smarts, and now I know you've shown your style. You already made it. You've lived through a time that nobody will ever forget. Nobody will forget you either."

Khaled concluded his speech with these parting words: "This is a special day, this is history in the making — but it's yours to make. Now, go out there and make it. Stay healthy, stay safe, stay blessed, stay prayed up, and most important — stay you. God bless all of you, Class of 2020. Another one. We da best, and I mean that."
