About

DJ Khaled "Life Is Roblox" is a viral video of DJ Khaled backing up over a curb with his golf cart, almost getting it stuck, then driving toward the camera and saying, "In life there's roadblocks. Don't let nothing stop you, 'cause we ain't stopping." The video was posted to DJ Khaled's Instagram account as a reel on January 2nd, 2023, and went viral over the following months in edits where he is misquoted as saying "life is Roblox," which it arguably sounds like Khaled is saying in the video. Prior to this, Khaled posted another video to Instagram in 2017 where he says a similar phrase, which has also been misquoted as Khaled saying "In life, you have Roblox." In July 2023, an original sound remixing a slowed-down version of the "life is Roblox" audio with the Sade song "Kiss of Life" inspired Pinkcore edits on TikTok where a person transitions into a Roblox character while running away from the camera.

Origin

On December 20th, 2017, DJ Khaled posted a video to Instagram[1] in which he tries to drive his jet ski over some debris blocking a channel of water and gets stuck. In the video, while he's stuck in the debris, he says, "In life there's roadblocks, the key is to overcome it," garnering over 324,000 views in six years. Some comments under the post misquote Khaled as saying "In life you have Roblox," also inspiring memes referencing Roblox, such as a video uploaded by YouTuber[2] GAMEING ING on December 16th, 2022, garnering around 3,000 views in seven months (shown below).



On January 2nd, 2023, DJ Khaled uploaded a video of himself golfing to Instagram,[3] garnering over 711,000 views in six months. Originally, at the end of the video, Khaled backs his golf cart up over a curb, almost getting it stuck, then drives towards the camera and says, "In life there's roadblocks. Don't let nothing stop you." However, it appears as though the part where he gives the advice has been cut from the upload. The deleted clip from the video gained viral spread over the following days, including a repost to the RapMusic YouTube[4] channel (shown below).



On January 7th, TikToker[5] @anadazztv posted the clip with the caption "DJ Khaled speaking facts," misquoting Khaled in the captions as if Khaled said, "Life is Roblox," garnering over 6.4 million views in six months (shown below).

On May 16th, YouTuber[8] Critical Chum posted an animation recreating the video in Roblox, garnering over 14,000 views in two months (shown below, right).
