DJ Mustard, producer behind hit singles like Tyga’s “Rack City,” 2 Chainz’ “I’m Different and Young Jeezy’s “R.I.P.,” has signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label.
After breaking out with his work on fellow West Coast rapper YG’s mixtapes, DJ Mustard has gone on to produce for artists like Ludacris, Bow Wow, Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle and more. Although he’s already signed to Roc Nation under a management deal, DJ Mustard will officially be joining the likes of J. Cole and Rihanna as an artist for the label.
Although known mainly for his club bangers and ratchet hits, in an interview with Life + Times DJ Mustard has stated his intentions to develop as a DJ/producer:
“See my vision is to, you don’t have a Hip Hop DJ that’s like the EDM DJ. Like David Guetta can go pack out a fucking stadium, and it’s just for David Guetta. You don’t got a Hip Hop DJ like that. So me, I just sat back and thought, ‘What would be different that I can do that the normal hip hop DJ or radio DJ wouldn’t be doing?”
