MUSTARD × YG × POSTMATES

Grammy-award-winning music producer and artist, Mustard, continues to expand his entrepreneurial portfolio with Fishbone Seafood, a Southern-style seafood eatery co-owned with longtime friend and collaborator, YG. The native Angelenos become co-owners in the existing seven locations across LA and this week, they are partnering with Postmates to give back to their community by delivering $100,000 worth of food to LA residents and community organizations. 

“I met one of the owners at a gas station, and he told me we should do business,” says 4Hunnid artist YG. “I called Mustard and told him about the opportunity, and he was ready to go.” Mustard, who was born and raised in Baldwin Village, explains why it was so vital for him and YG to give back to South LA right from the start.  “COVID-19 has hit Black and Brown communities the hardest,” stated the 10 Summers CEO. “YG and I have not forgotten where we come from and feel a duty to support those who are less fortunate and have been our biggest supporters from the beginning.” 

To celebrate the second annual “Mustard Day” and honor Juneteenth, Mustard and YG have partnered with Postmates to give back to their community by delivering $100,000 of meals. Only on June 19, $50,000 worth of free meals will be delivered to residents around the city within the delivery radius. Participating Fishbone locations will offer two free and healthy options to select from: The Mustard Plate (Grilled Shrimp and Filet Sole with Sautéed Veggies) and the YG Plate (Grilled Filet Sole with Sautéed Veggies.) To order, visit Postmates.com or download Postmates on iOS or Android. Only on June 19, the selected free meal discount will automatically be applied to the Postmates order. The free meal offer is valid for one meal per order while supplies last.

Additionally, $50,000 in meals will be delivered to several community organizations around Los Angeles through the next week, including A New Way of Life, Hollywood Food Coalition, Midnight Mission, Watts Empowerment Center, Upward Bound House and five St. John’s Well Child and Family clinics.  

In 2019, Los Angeles honored Mustard by declaring June 19 “Mustard Day” to recognize the significant commitment and support he has provided to his South LA hometown. Naitonally, June 19 is known as Juneteenth and commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States and is an important day to highlight Black voices and Black-owned businesses.

Duckwrth Releases New Anthem

Critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper Duckwrth releases his new feel-good anthem “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali and Radio Ahlee today.

Listen to “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali and Radio Ahlee: HERE

“In this journey we call life, us as humans will inevitably fall off the path. Sometimes due to forces outside of our control. But we always find our way. This is the theme song to Our Comeback. Let’s Find A Way,” says Duckwrth on the track.

The South Central sonic insurgent delivers a global anthem powered by pulsating analog synths, organic tribal percussion, nimble rhymes, and a soaring refrain. The combination of percussive stomps and soulful choruses immediately energizes creating an uplifting, upbeat, and undeniable track.

Over the last five years, LA-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015,) I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017) and The Falling Man EP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series, and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally, and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s All American, HBO’s Insecure and Real Time with Bill Maher, and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon, and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith.
