Mustard shares 5 Things You Didn’t Know about Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us,” including his reaction when he first heard it, confirming whether he sampled “Ether” from Nas and more!


What up, it’s Mustard, and here are five things you may not know about “Not Like Us.” One thing you may not know is I did not sample the “Ether” beat. Definitely seen somebody say that; I didn’t sample a Nas song. Second thing you might not know is I heard the song when everybody else heard it. I never heard it before. I wasn’t in the studio with them. I had never heard that song. So when everybody else heard it, I heard it. When I was making it, I was … in the back of my head is: What would Dr. Dre do if Lil Jon was in the studio and they were just clapping on the beat? That was my thought process. It took me approximately 30 minutes to make that beat. And five, I didn’t know he was gonna gas that beat like that. That’s it.
