At Lollapalooza 2015, Chicago Chapter spoke with DJ Mustard aka Dijon McFarlane, nicknamed after his first name. Growing up in Los Angeles surrounded by West Coast music culture, he hooked up early with Ty Dolla Sign and YG. "We just started working and we never stopped," he said. "It just took us to the next level — we all helped each other." All three have gone on to work with many of rap's greatest artists, with DJ Mustard's emphasis as a producer. He said the transition from DJ to producing goes "hand in hand, if you know what you're doing," because it goes from playing what people want to hear to making what people want to hear.
