DJ Mustard Says He Never Got Paid for YG's My Krazy Life
Pu$haz Ink/Roc Nation/Republic Records
YG's My Krazy Life was one of our favorite albums of 2014, thanks in no small part to DJ Mustard's infectious beats. It was released way back in March via a major label, Def Jam Records. So is it really possible that Mustard was never paid for his work?
That's what the South Central-bred producer claimed in an Instagram post yesterday. "Stop asking me about the Yg shit !!!" the post read. "I don't kno none of it on top of that I still ain't got paid for his album. So I don't give a fuck !!!!!"
YG soon responded with a comment accusing Mustard of never paying him for his work on the producer's debut solo album, 10 Summers, which included guest verses on two tracks as well as recording the producer's signature "Mustard on the beat, hoe!" tag. He also claimed that Mustard wasn't answering or returning his calls: "[A]nswer the phone fat boy @djmustard , talkin thatt talk on the Gram."
Another comment from Mustard soon thereafter seemed to indicate that the two collaborators plan to settle their beef offline: "I ain't for no sucka shit and this internet shit weak we can get down this won't be the first time. I'm finna pull up we can squabble up!"
No word yet on whether the rapper and producer have resolved their differences.
The Instagram post that started it all.
