For years, West L.A. was an almost non-existent player in the West Coast Hip Hop scene. But around 2011, the Los Angeles subsection that sits next to the 405 freeway became ignited when DJ Mustard linked up with an up-and-coming artist from Bompton named YG on the song "Bitches Ain't Shit." From then on, "Mustard on the beat hoe" became a signature synonymous with hits.
As it turns out, actor/rapper Enimal is partially responsible for DJ Mustard learning how to make beats in the first place.
"DJ Mustard, that was my partner man," Enimal told the #DXLive crew recently. "I actually helped him out on the production tip, taught him the very basics of production. He would come to my pops where I had my studio and he'd always be like 'I wanna learn how to make beats' and I'd be like 'Get Reason bro. I'll teach you how to do the very basics' and sure enough a couple months later he got it."
