DJ Mustard Details Mistah F.A.B. Fight, Upcoming Lil Boosie Collaboration

Exclusive: DJ Mustard on Mistah F.A.B. fight: "What I look like fighting? I've a million-plus dollars. I'm a millionaire now so I ain't really worried about fighting."

DJ Mustard details his recent altercation with Mistah F.A.B. In an exclusive conversation with HipHopDX during Brisk Iced Tea's Brisk Bodega event in Miami, Florida, Mustard insists that the scuffle was not the product of a broader conflict between Los Angeles, California and the Bay Area. He also says that the incident was “uncalled for” and now that he’s a millionaire, he is not “really worried about fighting.”

“The internet can make it whatever they want to make into,” Mustard says. “LA to the Bay—it’s not like that. I have some real friends in the Bay Area. I got some family in the Bay Area. It was never that. He felt how he felt, I guess. He swung. I guess he didn’t know that all those people were with me. I only run with one security guard. So, it wasn’t the security. Everybody keeps saying it was the security, but you know, that’s how it goes sometimes. I done got into millions of fights. That was just one of the fights that people have seen because of who I am. When people's careers go down, they’ll do anything to get back up. You’ve gotta expect stuff like that and you’ve gotta tighten up your security and make sure nobody can get to you like that.”

DJ Mustard explains that the conflict began because Bay Area artists accuse him of not crediting the region with being the origin of his signature sound. Rather, mustard says Lil Jon was the inspiration for his production style. 

“I was born in the 1990s,” he says. “A lot of the songs that came out before my time, I just didn’t know about.” 

He continues: “I met with my boy Dame, he works down there. He played me this beat. I never got why they were saying that. Why do they keep saying I sound like [The Bay]? He played me a song called “Dope Fiend Beat” by Too $hort and I was like, ‘Oh. OK.’ And Lil Jon got his style from that. I’m like, ‘I get it. I get what you mean, but at the same time it was like, that’s why I really push the Lil Jon thing, because I always listened to Lil Jon. That was my era. I was born in the 1990s. [Mistah F.A.B.] can’t blame me for not knowing where the Lil Jon sound came from.” 

When asked what he and Mistah F.A.B. discussed on stage prior to the skirmish, Mustard said he couldn’t really hear what the “Ghost Ride It”-emcee said.

“He wanted to take a picture with me,” Mustard joked. Nah, I’m just playing. I didn’t really hear him, man. I was in the middle of my set. It was uncalled for. What I look like fighting? I’ve a million-plus dollars. I’m a millionaire now so I ain’t really worried about fighting. I don’t wanna fight niggas when I see them. I ain’t tryna fight. I got a hundred niggas for that. That’s not what that was for. I didn’t come to the Bay to start nothing. I ain’t gonna start a fight or do nothing like that. That’s not what it’s about. It’s about getting your money, feeding your family. If you wanna holler like men, we can holler like men after that. The conversation wasn’t a conversation. It happened so quick. [It can happen to] anybody. If I walk up to you and sock you and you with 100 people, what are those people gonna do?” 

DJ Mustard Notes Upcoming Lil Boosie Collaboration

Mustard touched on his upcoming collaboration with Lil Boosie, who he notes as the creator of the Ratchet movement. He also shares that he’s happy that YG is receiving recognition for his most recent release, My Krazy Life.

“Me and Boosie got some stuff going on,” he said. “We already talked on the phone, so us hanging out was just to do some more music. He’s cool. He’s like a regular dude from the streets just like me and YG from the streets. We used to listen to him a lot. That’s where the Ratchet thing came from. It was real dope. 

“I’m just happy that everybody’s giving [YG] the credit that he’s always deserved because a lot of people was doing the same type of music he was doing and he wasn’t getting credit for it,” Mustard adds. “I’m just happy he’s on top and he’s doing what he’s supposed to do and what we always thought we was gonna do, really.” 

DJ Mustard plans to release his solo project, 10 Summers later this year.

    "I was born in the 1990's.can't blame me for not knowing where the lil john sound came from" Nigga yes we can blame you. Its your responsibility as a so called "producer" to know the history of the game and respect those that came before you. Thats the problem with these niggas coming up now. Damn shame

    DJ Mustard? He's no Dj, that's fo damn sho! No laptop best creating same loop sound the same, three minute beat maker gon be called a dj, not even no damn producer. Jokes like this clown, mike will, lex Luger and so many others dobe watered down the game. You can make beats via method lambasted but you're no dj. Real dj, Battlecat(the best producer ever), premo, timbaland(wack now), mannie fresh, dj quik, Daz Dillinger, Soopafly, fredwreck, jelly roll. This guys an embarrassment, pretty much EVERY 90's born "artist" that be up on the mainstream tip, Kendrick though a 80's baby, is given WAY too much credit for being mediocre. Fuck a priveledge white boy who's helped deteriorate the genre too.
