The man behind the infectious "ratchet beat," L.A.-based DJ Mustard is a prime candidate for a producer's album. Run a bunch of rappers over his easy, simple, and oh-so-club productions and it's like a party on wax, which is just what happens on the man's debut album. The guest list reads like an awards show with Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Iamsu!, 2 Chainz, and many, many more doing well with the rachet thing, while Mustard's old friend YG drops by to keep it family. The producer remains in his comfort zone -- with strip club anthem, followed by club track, followed by party-starter, and then repeat -- but stow this one for the weekend and it's one effective and fun way fill the floor with swaggering b-boys and those who love them.
