The West Coast Riser Recruits the Ear Drummers Superstars for a Visual Off the DJ Mustard-Produced The Ghetto. RJMrLA fills dancefloors with momentous bangers. Joining forces with Rae Sremmurd, RJ shares the video for “Hard Way,” produced by DJ Mustard. Switching up his signature style to make room for dancing jazz flutes, Mustard serves up a slapper for the three rappers to devour. Though it boasts a typically entrancing hook from Swae Lee and a boisterous verse from Slim Jxmmy, RJ commands the spotlight in “Hard Way,” popping champagne and making it rain in the video. With over 7.8 million plays on Spotify, “Hard Way” is a breakout hit from The Ghetto, a joint album by RJ and DJ Mustard, released in December.
RJMrLa and DJ Mustard’s first collaborative full-length, The Ghetto is a no-nonsense collection of speaker-knocking bangers. The eleven-track tape is a showcase for the chemistry between the two Los Angeles artists, with Mustard expanding his production palette while keeping his trademarks and RJ rocking a melodic flow and turning out instantly memorable hooks. Featuring appearances from YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Rae Sremmurd, OT Genasis, 03 Greedo, Joe Moses, and Bino Rideaux, The Ghetto hit stores as Southern California recovered from several devastating wildfires in late 2017, such as the one depicted on the mixtape’s cover, adding urgency to RJ and Mustard’s party anthems.
