DJ Mustard Opens Up About YG's Shooting

DJ Mustard on YG: 'He's blessed.'

How would you respond to your friend being the victim of a shooting?

DJ Mustard -- whose longtime collaborator YG was shot earlier this month -- reacted with disbelief.

"I couldn’t believe it," Mustard told MTV News on the BET Awards red carpet in Los Angeles Sunday (June 28). "Sh-t happens. You know what I'm saying? You just never know what and where that came from. Who knows? But as long as God knows, he good, he’s back functioning how he is. He's blessed. So, it’s cool."

The 10 Summers producer heard the news through a friend and they rushed to be near their comrade. "We all went to the hospital and waited outside for him," Mustard added. "I didn’t go in because it was family, you know what I'm saying, his moms and stuff like that. But all our homies was outside."

The shooting was a harsh reminder of reality, according to Mustard.

"Sh-t happens," he reiterated. "We came from that. Not saying we all got shot. But luckily he made it out of it and it was cool."

While DJ Mustard told MTV News that he doesn't think he'll be an executive producer on YG's next album, Still Krazy, he said he'll "hopefully" have a few beats on the project. The producer did have that title on YG's debut, My Krazy Life.

Last week, YG opened up about the shooting, as well.

“After I got shot, I’m telling everybody, ’Take me to the hospital, because I can’t die,’" he recalled in an interview with Billboard. "We hop in my homie’s car and bam — we got in a car accident! We hit an island trying to avoid another car. We had to hop out of the totaled car, hop in another car. At the hospital we had to tell people, ’Take me serious right now — you don’t even understand what’s going on.’ It was wild."
