DJ Mustard Says He Doesn’t Want His Sound To Be Put In The “Ratchet” Category

While out on the road in the UK, DJ Mustard dropped by Tim Westwood’s studio to do a promo interview for his upcoming album, 10 Summers. As he discussed his sound and impact on the current landscape of music, Mustard told Westwood that he doesn’t want to be put in the category of “ratchet music,” as Westwood put it, when it comes to his sound.

“It’s not that I won’t run with it, but I don’t want anyone to put me in that box to where I can only do that kind of music,” said Mustard. “I like the “ratchet” box, but I don’t want anyone to get it misunderstood, we got that from Boosie. That’s why everyone in L.A. used to say, “ratchet, ratchet, ratchet,” but we all got that from Boosie. You have to give credit where credit is due. He’s got some ratchet stuff on my album.”

Throughout the interview, Mustard detailed his relationship with Jay Z and Roc Nation, the buried Mistah F.A.B. beef, working with Rihanna, and the follow up to last year’s Ketchup mixtape.
