Mustard’s career dates back to 2010 when his work appeared with Y.G. on the 2010 mixtape “The Real 4Fingaz.” Hip-hop and R&B hits followed, including “Rack City” by Tyga and 2 Chainz’ “I’m Different.” Mustard had also collaborated with Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Big Sean, and YG, among others. His latest album, “Perfect Ten,” was released on June 28.
“Mustard’s track record has earned him a reputation as a go-to collaborator for artists that want to scale the charts,” said John Titta, ASCAP’s executive vice president, membership . “He is a true tastemaker and we are excited to be there for him as he continues to shape popular culture with his music.”
Added Mustard: “The past few years I’ve been making decisions to only work with people who have as much faith in me and my art as I do. ASCAP made it clear how much they appreciate and value my catalog and our future partnership.”
ASCAP boasts some 720,000 members representing more than 11.5 million copyrighted works.
