DJ Mustard may only be 23, but he's been DJing since he was 11, and it showed at his SXSW show a few weeks ago. Watch his full set from Boiler Room and Ray Ban's showcase above.
Beginning with "Rack City," the first bona fide hit he produced for Tyga, Mustard then used clips from Fatman Scoop's "Be Faithful" and Black Sheep's "The Choice is Yours" to segue into his and 2 Chainz' "I'm Different." This pattern of using well-known classics as transitions between the arsenal of modern hits he's produced persisted throughout the night, with the classics often being introduced by humorous quips. Before Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" came: "This is where I got my style from," and preceding Luniz' "I Got Five On It" was: "Where I come from, when we smoke weed we listen to shit like this."
He introduced YG's "My Nigga" jovially: "If you came with one of your best motherfuckin' friends tonight then make some noise! Well you see all these people behind me? I came with my motherfuckin' niggas." One of these people behind Mustard turned out to be Atlanta MC Que, who hopped onstage around the 33 minute mark to sing the hook of Mustard's new single, "Vato," and perform his breakout single, "OG Bobby Johnson." The crowd appeared very pleased to see him.
