DJ Mustard ruled in 2015

DJ Mustard may have been the hardest working producer in 2014-15. The Los Angeles-based DJ produced top hits such as Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” Big Sean’s “IDFWY,” and Omarion’s “Post to Be,” to name a few. DJ Mustard walked away with the producer/songwriter of the year.

Snoop and Chuck D share a moment 

Snoop and Chuck D took a moment to share thoughts on the red carpet. But their exchange represented an era in hip-hop that is now known as the “Golden Age.” The two legendary rappers were responsible for major shifts in hip-hop. Chuck D represented the political aspect of hip-hop during the late ‘80s, while Snoop ushered in West Coast gangsta rap in the early ’90s. Their music continues to leave an indelible mark on hip-hop.
