DJ Mustard Says Working With Jay Z Would Be Intimidating

Despite spending time around Hov in the past, Mustard knows that working with the icon would be a whole different beast.

Since 2012, DJ Mustard has produced records for and shared a studio session with Big Sean, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Rick Ross, Rihanna, and T.I., among countless other superstar acts.

Nevertheless, there's one artist who the superstar beatmaker has yet to produce for who Mustard says he would find intimidating.

In a new interview on Sway In The Morning, the LA native told co-host Heather B that, despite being around him "a lot," getting to work with Jay Z in the studio would produce some nerves.

Probably Hov, that's probably the only person. And I've been around Jay a lot, but still...

Despite being signed to Hov's Roc Nation label as a DJ and producer since late 2013, Mustard's answer isn't surprising—Jay resides at the top of Living Legend mountain.

While many musicians project a natural cool, calm and collected attitude on social media while posting photos with their collaborators and contemporaries, fans need to remember that artists and producers are often fans too. And just like a fan might freak out or need a moment to collect their thoughts before interacting with a living, breathing icon, it would be completely understandable if DJ Mustard were to require a shot of tequila and a few hits of some of California's finest weed before beginning a recording session with Jay.

Hopefully, for Mustard, this discussion becomes a reality.
