During the 2011-2012 period, hip hop saw an influx of new energy, behind artists in Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Particularly, LA was a forgotten hip hop city, outside of Game and Snoop Dogg. But, a new sound from DJ Mustard made stars out of Tyga and YG.
DJ Mustard has gone from just producing local Los Angeles artists to working with Jay Z at Roc Nation. His management deal now puts him on the same roster as DJ Khaled and Rihanna. The latter of which, he produced a hit, “Needed Me,” for.
Recently, DJ Mustard was in NYC and doing his media rounds. He would pay a visit to Hot 97, speaking to Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Peter Rosenberg. During the interview, he would discuss his weight loss, his situation with YG, and his plethora of hits.
