“Dijon McFarlane (born June 5, 1990), professionally known as DJ Mustard, is an American record producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record executive, DJ and hype man from Los Angeles, California” Wikipedia.
Why is DJ Mustard so well known in the music industry? Is it because of his music productions or is it because he’s also a social media guru with a fresh and stylish approach to the content he posts? Let’s see why Mustard is an icon of style.
“Mustard On The Beat, H*e”
Mustard’s iconic catchphrase and tag are one of the main reasons why he’s so big in the rap game. With collaborations ranging from Ty Dolla $ign to Chris Brown, the American producer was able to climb the ladder of the trap/hip-hop scene in a couple of years, applying a very club-oriented (also described as “ratchet music”) yet still rap-focused approach to his productions. Mustard has also become significantly more popular on social media like Instagram and Twitter, where he posts daily.
Flash and Blings
Like every other major rap star, Dijon’s clothing style is very flashy and extravagant: with a massive streetwear and sneakers collection he constantly shows in his Instagram stories and pictures (and also a couple of his future wife’s designer lingerie, oops)
his style has been covered a lot of times from magazines like Complex, for example.
Although Mustard said multiple times that he doesn’t like the whole “flexing” concept that is so popular in the industry at the moment, he’s been called out multiple times for this just mentioned fact.
Dj Mustard and Dj Khaled
Mustard is incredibly successful in his craft, DJ Khaled is a billionaire with almost dozens of companies under his name), Mustard and Khaled have been compared in terms of style, creativity and…belly volumes. Dj Mustard and Dj Khaled are definitely two of the biggest realities within the music production industry in the hip-hop realm and they are definitely here to stay.
Although he admitted he is an overall introvert guy, Mustard is definitely loud enough with his productions and his Instagram sprees of content. We can only wish him all the best in his future career and with his wedding around the corner, he will surely establish himself even more
