DJ Mustard spread the wealth
It’s the season of giving and DJ Mustard is about that life.
The famous producer did well for himself when his ubiquitous sparse and funky sonic template was everywhere just a few years ago. Mustardwave has made this man a lot of money and he’d like to spread it around a bit. So that’s exactly what he did in a new video posted to Instagram.
In the clip, Mustard can be seen driving past a club with a big stack of money in his lap. As they pass the club, he tosses the money into the air out of his convertible.
“Hey, hey, we doing a charity drive!” he jokes as he continues to toss the money around.
Tis The Season
Mustard is far from the only rapper feeling charitable this year. Of course, 2 Chainz has been spreading Christmas cheer both via his Dabbin’ Santa sweaters and the profit they create. He recently went in on Walmart after he found them hosting sales of his charitable sweaters on their website.
“Oooh nooo someone please tell Walmart that they didn’t get permission to use this patent or likeness in anyway. We use this sweater this time of year to spread togetherness and also give back to those who are less fortunate or not able to provide for their families at the time 🙏🏿…That being said it’s gone be a Jolly Holly Xmas”
Considering that the rapper uses the sweater proceeds to help needy families, he’s right to be a little mad. But someone on his team should have pointed out that the sweaters were being sold via a third party and not Walmart itself.
On the other side of Atlanta, T.I. didn’t need to wait for Christmas to feel the giving spirit. He bought a new car for the daughter of one of his bodyguards who was tragically shot and killed nearly 10 years ago.
A paparazzo for the website approached Mustard following his release and got some understandably testy answers. When he asked about the gun, Mustard laid out the situation for him because she kept her grades up in school.
“See Phil… Our Loyalty lives forever!!!” he wrote along with an Instagram video of the gift-giving. He continued,
“She’s been on hers & doing everything we can possibly ask her to do. Making straight As & maintaining a 3.8 GPA all the way through school, staying away from all the things we were eyeball deep into when we was her age, & doing any & everything that’s EVER been asked of her since you left. How can we not make sure she rides cool & in comfort her senior year? We miss you more than we can express… but we’ll fill in for you in every way we can until it’s all said & done.”
Change The Narrative
Then again, maybe Mustard is feeling generous because he doesn’t want people to think about his embarrassing incident at LAX recently. The rapper and a friend were detained after TSA agents found a gun in Mustard’s friends bag. When a paparazzo for TMZ asked about the gun, Mustard got testy.
“Did you see me bring a gun in? Am I arrested? Am I in handcuffs?” he said. “I’m not in handcuffs. I didn’t bring no gun through here.”
