Thanks to DJ Mustard, It Was a Cold Summer

Unfortunately, we no longer live in a world where Hip Hop producers are the tastemakers of pop music. About a decade ago, the likes of Timbaland, Polow da Don, and Danjahandz were the secret sauce that made music turn into hits. Now, I'd go as far to say that most Hip Hop fans wouldn't be able to name more than one producer of Hip Hop music. Noteworthy beats are now put together by EDM artists who are generally front and center when performing, rather than being back up support like in Hip Hop.

Given all that, there's still one producer in Hip Hop who is still doing his part to carry on the torch superstar beat makers. DJ Mustard just released his second full length studio album and as expected, it's filled with many household names you wish he'd collaborate with. After a brief sprint through Cold Summer, my favorite of the thirteen tracks is Don't Hurt Me with Jeremih and Nicki Minaj. It's the track that reminds me most of all the booty shake worthy club anthems that I usually associate with DJ Mustard. It has the snappy flair and smooth synth undertones that you expect from a track that starts with the signature "Mustard on the beat" intro. Take my favorite with a grain of salt, but don't let me stop you from taking a deep dive on the album. In fact choose your own adventure here on iTunes or Spotify...#ColdSummer
