Concurrently with working with YG and disc jockeying at various venues, which earned him well over $5.000 at the time, he also began teaming up with rappers such as Nipsey Hussle and Tyga for the singles “You Broke” and “Bitches Ain’t Shit”. In December 2011, Tyga released his single “Rack City”, which was co-written and produced by Mustard. The song instantly became a hit around the globe and helped the DJ earn an additional $2.500.

The following year, he released his first mixtape titled “Ketchup”, which contains guest appearances from multiple artists.

Why is he so famous?
The DJ became famous after the release of the mega-hit “Rack City”. Dijon was born on June 5, 1990, in Los Angeles, California. Both of his parents are Jamaican and they emigrated to the United States in the early 1980s. During his adolescent years, his father was deported back to Jamaica, however, they still keep in touch. He first began disc jockeying at the age of 11 after his uncle, who also worked as a DJ, let him try out at a family party.
During his pre-teen years, while still trying to find success as a DJ, he developed the stage name DJ Mustard from the condiment dijon mustard, as Dijon is also his first name.

He began creating beats and producing almost all of the rapper’s mixtapes starting from his second titled “The Real Four Fingaz”, released in November 2009.

The reason why this record producer and executive is so successful is because of the many professions that he ventured in the past decade or so.

In addition to these, he also began appearing regularly on television programs and late-nite talk shows, with his most recent appearance being on the television series “All Def Comedy”, in which he was a main cast member.
The DJ’s career hit its peak in the mid-2010s when he released his debut solo album – “10 Summers”.

Throughout the rest of the decade, he continued to release new albums – “Cold Summer” in September 2016, and “Perfect Ten” from June 2019. His latest (and third) album became by far his most successful, as it entered album charts in the United States, Australia, Canada, and many European countries and earned a gold certification by the RIAA.
