Not just your average DJ, but one of the most-sought out producers in the music industry today; DJ Mustard lands a feature on GQ.com. In the article, the hit-maker talks about music, countless hit singles, his sounds being duplicated, Jay Z, a new sound for 2016 and much more.
Dijon Isaiah McFarlane [Mustard’s real name] spoke on others jacking his beats:
“It used to bother me when I would hear songs that sound like mine, but I don’t really care no more.”
DJ Mustard has no intentions of starting a rap career like Dr. Dre and Kanye West, and plans on passing along his best material even more:
“I’m selling everything,” he says. “I give all my best stuff to other people.”
On Jay Z [his Roc Nation Boos] being an inspiration for him and not releasing any music in 2015:
“He doesn’t have to. I’m trying to get to that level when I can just put out music when I want to, and work when I want to work instead of just all the time.”
As stated, Mustard has plans for more new music at the top of the year , which GQ’s Jake Woolf notes as “Trap EDM,” once hearing a new collaboration track that features a 2015 breakout rapper. We wonder who that could be??
“At the end of our meeting, he plays me a song featuring a young rapper who had a breakout year in 2015. The song, which is set to drop in early 2016, doesn’t sound anything like any DJ Mustard track you’ve heard before. I don’t even remember hearing the “Mustard on the beat” tag. (Though I did only hear the song once.) Maybe the best way to describe it is something like trap EDM—really, really dope trap EDM. If I were a low-risk betting man, I’d put my money on this song being a massive hit. When the song is over, Mustard smiles and laughs. “This is gonna move!”
