“I’m Different”

DJ Mustard has come a long way since being introduced as YG’s DJ and producer. The Compton native is now a sought-after beat masters skilled in crafting ratchet hits most notably for the likes of 2 Chainz (“I’m Different“) and Tyga (“Rack City”).

Be careful what you wish for. 2 Chainz brushed off reports that he was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco Monday (June 10) because “if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that [have] been taken.” TMZ took that as a challenge.

Fresh off the announcement that he signed to Roc Nation earlier this week, DJ Mustard is dropping details on the new deal. The Southern California producer spoke with Vibe.com about joining Jay-Z’s roster, and teaming with Rihanna.

DJ Mustard is officially down with The Roc. The West Coast producer signed a management deal with Jay’s growing Roc Nation imprint, a publicist for the rapper confirmed to Hip-Hop Wired Monday (April 29).

Did you really think 2012 would close out without at least one more 2 Chainz video? The Atlanta rapper drops the visual for “I’m Different,” the latest single from his debut album, Based On A T.R.U. Story.

Following his take on Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything,” Tyga continues to go jackin’ for beats in this new video for “I’m Different.”

It’s been documented that 2 Chainz was a pretty good basketball player, starring at North Clayton High School in College Park, GA before earning a scholarship to Alabama State. Now a legit rap star, the Hair Weave Killer has teamed with Champs Sports and adidas Originals as a spokesman for the Fall/Winter 2012 adicolor collection.
