DJ Mustard: "DJ Drama Was Like God"

Exclusive: The Roc Nation producer talks DJ Drama's influence and the end of the Jerk movement.

Minutes before his performance during Brisk Bodega’s SXSW showcase (March 13), DJ Mustard detailed the influence Aphiliates-founder, DJ Drama had on his career.

“I used to want to be like DJ Drama a lot,” Mustard said in an exclusive conversation with HipHopDX. He continued:

“That’s who I looked up to: Drama. I still look up to Drama, but Drama was like God. All I wanted to do was be a mixtape deejay. Drama’s bigger than a mixtape DJ now, but when I was coming up that was the dude. [He’s] the best mixtape deejay. I don’t think no other mixtape deejay is messing with Drama. I used to [wonder] what was gonna be my Gangster Grillz. Drama didn’t play. If you got a Gangster Grillz mixtape, you were official. I might do a Gangster Grillz Ketchup mixtape.”
