Recently DJ Mustard sat down with Steve Lobel in the studio for an episode of Live with Steve Lobel. During the interview, Lobel asks Mustard a variety of questions including some of his favorites in the game.
When it comes to Mustard’s favorite producer, the L.A.-bred DJ says it’s Dr. Dre.
“I would say Dre to be politically correct,” Mustard says. “Dre, because it’s Dre and he just got that ear. But I would have to say Lil Jon…Just the run and the vibe, just the whole club scene. That’s just like my lane. That’s where I get a lot of my background from. Him and Pharrell and Timbaland, too.”
But when it comes to his favorite rapper, many assumed me that his answer would be his longtime friend and collaborator YG. But not quite. He replied that he actually likes Drake.
When asked about which artist would he like to work with that is deceased, Mustard responds, “‘Pac, because he was just an outlaw. He wasn’t afraid to say what he had to say.”
Looks like he’s a true west side hip hop fan. But you can definitely tell his influences in his beats. One thing is for sure, how confident his interview was, it looks like Mustard ain’t going no where no time soon.
