    Featuring Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, and TeeFlii caps off an impressive debut album for a producer who plans to be around for a while.

    There are tons of memorable hooks and verses all over 10 Summers.... All of these moments fly by and come across as natural and effortless, even “formal” in the platonic sense.

    10 Summers closes with four R&B tracks—two songs and two interludes, all of which act almost as palette cleansers after the unrelenting hardness of the previous eight numbers.

    The final stretch of tracks are Mustard-as-usual--perfectly fine, but they make a brave album a little more safe.

    While 10 Summers delivers everything we'd expect from DJ Mustard, it definitely doesn't challenge his artistic growth.

    For the moment, we are treated to a promising if frustrating record that remarkably lacks a hit single itself.
  7. For a producer who had such a big hand in one of the best records of the year, though, 10 Summers is just too by-the-numbers to excite anyone.

    This album's just a waste of time. Every single beat sounds so similar. I'm sure if you play each track side by side, you won't notice aThis album's just a waste of time. Every single beat sounds so similar. I'm sure if you play each track side by side, you won't notice a difference. I'm not saying 10 Summers is bad, it's horrible. I actually think about living in a cave for a moment until either he becomes redundant or he starts diversifying his production after completing the album. It's sad that hip hop has gone downhill so fast with major hip hop publications calling him the next Dre. I'm sorry but seriously? He seems promising but this album and the slew of singles produced by him that are being played in the radio makes me think otherwise. His unoriginality makes me wonder for $20,000 a beat, I would rather download it illegally than wasting my money on this nonsense. If DJ Mustard is indeed the future of hip hop production, I think Nas could be right. Hip hop is dead and it may be for real this time. Expand
