About the artist
Dijon McFarlane, professionally known as DJ Mustard, is an American record producer and DJ from Los Angeles, California. He is perhaps best known for being the official DJ of Compton-bred rapper YG, as well as for producing a string of hit singles, such as Tyga's "Rack City", 2 Chainz' "I'm Different", YG's "My Nigga", Kid Ink's "Show Me", Ty Dolla Sign's "Paranoid", Trey Songz' "Na Na", Tinashe's "2 On", Jeremih's "Don't Tell Em", Teeflii's "24 Hours", T.I.'s "No Mediocre", Fergie's "L.A. Love", Will.i.am's "Feelin' Myself," Big Sean's "I Don't Fuck With You," Wiz Khalifa's "You and Your Friends", Kid Ink's "Main Chick", Kid Ink's "Be Real", Omarion's "Post to Be" and many more. Mustard's production style has been described as an up-tempo, club oriented, catchy yet rudimentary melodic hip hop style. This style has snowballed into a subgenre of West Coast hip hop, which he calls "ratchet music". Almost all of his productions begin or end with the tag "Mustard on the beat, hoe!", a voice sample of YG, who says it at the end of "I'm Good", one of their early collaborations. Mustard's debut album, 10 Summers, was released on August 26, 2014.
