DJ Mustard is an American record producer, DJ, record executive, beatmaker, and songwriter.

Mustard’s production style has been described as an up-tempo, club-oriented, catchy yet rudimentary melodic hip hop style. This style has developed into the contemporary production style of West Coast hip hop during the early 2010s, which he calls “ratchet music”. Almost all of his productions begin or end with the tag “Mustard on the beat, ho!”, a voice sample of YG, who says it at the end of “I’m Good”, one of their early collaborations, as well as claps and repetition of the word “hey”. He has since released three solo albums: 10 Summers in August 2014, Cold Summer in September 2016, and Perfect Ten in June 2019.

DJ Mustard’s production style has been described as an up-tempo, radio-friendly, club-oriented, catchy hip hop style which he calls “ratchet music”. Mustard’s body of work has been recognized by critics as sonically cohesive and recognizable in that many of his tracks have recurring, identifiable motifs. Most apparent is his producer signature “Mustard on that beat, ho!” which prefaces the beat drop in many of his songs.
This signature is often strategically placed to span the third and fourth counts of the measure preceding the song’s drop to make it more catchy. On a compositional level, however, Mustard’s motifs also include an ambient chant of “Hey!” on the off-beats in the background of his music; the emphasized, minimalist bass synth opening too many songs (most notably on My Nigga, R.I.P., and Rack City), 808 kicks and the use of crisp hand-claps and snap-snares.

Mustard uses the music production software Reason, first using 5, 6 and currently using 6.5. In an interview with The Fader magazine he stated, “With this ratchet music, I’m trying to create my own sound. I want to make this to where it can’t leave, this is something that everybody’s gonna get used to. Like how everybody got used to Lil Jon or Luke. I don’t want it to be something that comes and goes, I want it to be something that’s here forever like a real culture.”
As a result of the recognizability and commonality between many of Mustard’s chart-topping singles, a number of artists who employ production similar to DJ Mustard’s have been criticized for lack of originality and plagiarism. In a July 2014 interview with Tim Westwood, the rapper YG, whose album My Krazy Life was mostly produced by DJ Mustard, stated that Iggy Azalea’s song “Fancy” “jocked” Mustard’s style. Like many of Mustard’s songs, the song includes a minimalist G-funk style synth and samples a layered “Hey” voice chant. He has been compared to rap producers like Dr Dre and many old rappers from the golden age of hip hop.
