Mistah Fab's beef with DJ Mustard took a violent turn on Sunday, June 8, when Fab slapped the producer and was then jumped by members of Mustard's entourage.
Because Fab is from Oakland and Mustard is from Los Angeles, people wondered if the fight might trigger tensions between the Bay and L.A.
Mustard's right hand man, YG, sat down with MTV News and explained what the beef is about and why there's no problems on either side of California with each other.
"It ain't no hood vs. hood thing." YG said. "I'ma tell you what it is. The Mistah Fab n*gga, he say the homey stole the Bay sound, he say Mustard took the Bay sound, He feel like that, okay, we don’t feel like that, Mustard don’t feel like that. It's some beats I can feel the bounce and all that, but it's not the Bay sound. The Bay is Mac Dre, E-40, Keek Da Sneak. That's the Bay sound. We grew up listening to that."
YG's album My Krazy Life was produced primarily by Mustard.
“I don’t feel like the homey taking a Bay sound, especially my album don’t sound like the Bay,” YG added. “Every time somebody speak on my album they say it remind them of [Snoop Dogg's] Doggystyle, Eazy-E, DJ Quik, it remind them of that. I’m trying to figure out what he’s talking about, because I really don’t know. And we go to the Bay all the time. They're playing all our songs on the radio. Ain't nobody ever said nothing like that to us. [Fab] said that. I don't know if he mad 'cause the homey eating. That's how he feel and I don't feel like that. It ain't no Bay to L.A. beef. It ain't no hood to hood beef."
