DJ Mustard recently revealed a handful of beats he wishes he would have produced.
Calvin Harris’ “We Found Love” and “Summer” are among the tracks the producer wishes he produced. “I’m a big fan of Calvin Harris,” Mustard says in an interview with XXL. “I wish I produced ‘We Found Love’ with Rihanna. That song is just dope and it made a lot of money. Money isn’t really my motivation when I make beats. I already got money now. It’s more of a passion than a hobby for me now. At first, it was just like, ‘Let’s just make money.’ Now, when you get money, you get a house, take care of your people. It’s more so you want to learn more about more stuff. Now, I’m just really involved in learning and trying to build my path.”
“Cardo is my dog,” he says. “I’m really happy that’s he is doing what he is doing now. He come from a long way. Me and Cardo, I’ve known him for a long time so for him to have that success is good. I want everybody around me to win, so I think that was dope. I’m sure having Jeezy and Jay on my beat will happen. You never know. They both gave each other a run for their money. They both did their thing, so it was dope.”
Other songs that round out Mustard’s list are Robin Thicke’s “Get Her Back” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River.”
DJ Mustard announced yesterday (July 22) that he is scheduled to release his debut album, 10 Summers.
