And that shit is a movie.” As for when we can expect the track, Mustard says, “Any day. Never know. I might just get crazy one day and just…you know what I’m saying, ain’t no preparation for this shit.”
As for working with Kendrick Lamar, Mustard says, “My dog, he just texted me the other day.” Will the two work together on K. Dot’s new album, which is reportedly due out in September? “Damn right. He wants me to yell on some shit. You know like I be doing some Fat Man Scoop shit.”
While this is good news, we don’t know yet what the collaboration will sound like because the two haven’t locked down studio time. “I could not tell you. I do not know,” Mustard responds when asked what the collabo will sound like. “I don’t even know what the outcome of that is gonna be but its gonna be greatness…He told me he want me to pull up on him.
