DJ Mustard explained during the “CRWN: A Conversation With Elliott Wilson & DJ Mustard” yesterday (August 26) why he had a problem with Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” single, the triple-platinum, chart-topping cut that uses a sound similar to the one synonymous with DJ Mustard.
“At first I was like, ‘Yeah, you trippin,’” DJ Mustard says in a story that was included in the DX Daily that premiered today (August 27). “I know Iggy. We know her. She used to be chillin’ with me, [Ty Dolla $ign], YG. She used to be chillin’ with us. She knows the sound. She knows how hard we was working to make that sound and for you to go to somebody else or for you to do whatever you did, whatever they did and just be like, ‘Oh this is new and I don’t know why Mustard dissed…’ No. You know why.”
During a June appearance on TimWestwoodTV, YG rapped in a freestyle that the production team behind “Fancy”—London based trio The Invisible Men—borrowed from DJ Mustard’s production style.
“And DJ Mustard, that nigga producers is they jocking / ‘Fancy,’ don’t it sound like he produced that shit?”
