Dijon Isaiah McFarlane, better known by his DJ name DJ Mustard, has been shedding weight recently. His recent Instagram stories showing off his physical transformation have gone viral.
During a podcast episode with The Real earlier this week, Mustard explained how he shed the pounds. He revealed that he wanted to lose weight because he “likes dressing in designer clothes and it’s hard to buy them if you’re overweight.”
Mustard has been working in the music industry since 2011. He first became involved with producing music when he was 11 years old when he received a job from his uncle as a DJ for family parties. He would later begin DJing in the Los Angeles area.
He is also a rapper and producer who has collaborated with several artists including YG, Tyga, Trey Songz, and Jenifer Lopez. He has produced multi-platinum selling songs for many of these artists.
In addition to his rapping and production career, Mustard has also become a well-known philanthropist. He has been involved in the Feed Tha Streets initiative to help children in his community.
He is married to model Chanel Thierry and they have three children together. Their oldest daughter is Kauner and their sons are Kiylan and Kody.
