Dijon Isaiah McFarlane, known professionally as Mustard (formerly DJ Mustard), is an American record producer, DJ, record executive, rapper, and songwriter. He is a frequent collaborator of fellow California-bred artists YG and Ty Dolla Sign; among various other records for the hip hop and R&B genres since his entrance into mainstream music with Tyga’s 2011 single, “Rack City”.
Mustard’s production style has been described as an up-tempo, club oriented, catchy yet rudimentary melodic hip hop style. This style has developed into the contemporary production style of West Coast hip hop during the early 2010s, 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, as well as claps and repetition of the word “hey”.
Mustard has since released 3 solo albums: 10 Summers in August 2014, Cold Summer in September 2016, and Perfect Ten in June 2019. His hit singles from his albums has landed him a residency at Marquee in Vegas. You can check out the list of upcoming Marquee Nightclub events here and upcoming Marquee Dayclub events here.
