DJ Mustard Says Not Like Us Video Shoot Like California Love

DJ Mustard says he and Kendrick Lamar both agreed that filming the “Not Like Us” music video felt like Dr. Dre and 2Pac’s “California Love” video.

DJ Mustard reveals he wasn’t trolling Drake when he wore the Toronto Blue Jays cap during the filming Of the “Not Like Us” music video with Kendrick Lamar. He revealed that the plan to make the visuals occurred after the reaction of the Pop Out concert at the arena.


The streets were packed once word got out about the music video being shot on July 22. DJ Mustard said Kendrick Lamar was at the Tupac and Dr. Dre video shoot in 1996 as a boy on his dad’s shoulders. The feeling and vibe came full circle for Kendrick Lamar as he saw a kid on his dad’s shoulder at his own video shoot for “Not Like Us.”

DJ Mustard explained why he wore a Toronto Blue Jays fitted cap on the day of the shoot. He states that he sweated out the other hats in collection from the Pop Out Concert and only had the Toronto Blue Jays cap ready to film. It is also a hat that is worn in the “jungles” aka Jays area of his city.


The “California Love” music video remains a significant piece of hip-hop history, known for its ambitious concept, high production values, and its role in shaping the visual aesthetic of 90s hip-hop. The video was shot in the desert areas of California, contributing to the barren, desolate look required for the “Mad Max” theme.

The video includes appearances by other West Coast hip-hop artists, adding to the sense of a united front in the world of California hip-hop. Cameos include George Clinton, who plays a tribal leader. Directed by Hype Williams, the video draws inspiration from the film “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” and presents a futuristic, dystopian vision of California.
