DJ Mustard: “It Use To Bother Me When I Would Hear Songs That Sound Like Mine”; Producer Lands A Feature On GQ.com

dj-mustard-gq-01

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.

dj-mustard-gq-02

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 [2016], 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??

Jake says:

“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!”

In Fashion: Zoe Kravitz Gets Nearly Nude for GQ

zoe-kravitz

 

If your parents were Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, you would be this cool too!

Zoe Kravitz stripped down to nearly nothing for GQ Magazine and described how she is starting from the bottom and working her way to the top. As a model, actress and musician she is making a name for herself with hard work.

She wants to make things very clear by saying:

“It’s so much work. But let’s be real: I’m not doing this for the money.”

She understands the celebrity status and the work of both of her parents. She knows that she could easily have a record deal right now or sit around her penthouse and just be cute and rich. However, the most interesting part about her journey is how she wants to pay her dues just like everyone else. Zoe is on tour at the moment with her band “LOLAWOLF” where she is traveling around the country performing at music festivals and opening up for different artists.

The Word: Nicki Minaj Rocks GQ & Claims Her “Anaconda” Video Was Meant To Empower Women…

NM-GQ

We’ve seen her style evolve tremendously over the past couple of years. She’s gone from natural to bone straight, to multiple colors, right back to natural! And that doesn’t include the ensembles that accompany each look. So we definitely appreciate the current style of Nicki Minaj and so does GQ.

Inside the feature/article, Nicki does her best to prove that Anaconda and it’s video was not a flop, but a strong visual that represented strong women and strong decisions.

On the Anaconda video and its message:

I don’t know what there is to really talk about… I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video. I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends.

She [Nicki’s character in the video] is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.

I’m chopping up the banana. Did you realize that? At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene [before the Drake scene] because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.

Right.

The November issue of GQ hits newsstands nationwide on October 28.

Well of course, you know my vote (Rae speaking)! Yes, you know I had to be reminded of what Rihanna‘s GQ cover even looked like after I saw Beyonce’s uber sexy situation! However, the similarities are striking as far as flesh is concerned, and it does pose a question, who’s cover was the fly-est? Let’s remove the writing shall we?
