Mustard held his inaugural SUMMERSFEST music festival this past Monday, August 12 at The Novo in L.A. Live. The L.A. native and Grammy Award winner brought music heavyweights like Migos, YG, 2 Chainz, Ella Mai and more to the stage.
Those in attendance had no clue who was going to hit the stage for the evening, which was kicked off by 1TakeJay delivering the “Intro” from Mustard’s Perfect 10 album. Jay was followed by back-to-back hits from RJ MrLA, A$AP Ferg, Roddy Rich, 10 Summers songstress Ella Mai, YG, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Saweetie. Mid-show, the show got emotional in a tribute to Nipsey Hussle with “Perfect 10” and a video tribute. The epic show would wrap with a “Pure Water” performance from Mustard and Migos, the latter joined by his son Kiylan.
“This festival was absolutely legendary. I’m so happy we were able to get some of the best artists in the game right now to perform. We sold out in less than two weeks and gave the city a night they’ll never forget,” stated Mustard.
If you were unable to catch Mustard at SUMMERSFEST, you can pull up to the Legendary Nights Tour where he will join Future, Meek Mill, YG and Megan Thee Stallion across the country. Ella Mai will be hitting the road as well, joining Ariana Grande on the Europen run of The Sweetener World Tour, which kicks off in her home of London on August 17.
The R&Beef nobody asked for between Ella Mai and Jacquees that we all thought was finished simmering has been reignited. The “Boo’d Up” singer called out the faux king of R&B after he performed her song “Trippin’” while on stage with Tory Lanez at O2 Festival in London her hometown.
Was this on purpose? Well, Ella Mai seems to think so, and she didn’t hold back sending Jacquees a dart in the form of a Tweet. While not directly @’ed at the habitual song jacker you don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out who exactly she was talking too.
“i’d be so embarrassed if someone brung me on stage and the only thing i could sing was someone elses song because nobody knew my actual music. poor thing.”

The Shaderoom hopped on all over the mess and posted the Tweet and Jacquees’ boo Dreezy decided to hop in the comments to stand up for her man claiming he hates performing that particular song and only did so after being put on the spot.
“1st of all he hate performing that song. They put him on the spot, and he did what he was supposed to do. Every single he dropped is gold or plat humble yourself girl.”
Interesting you would think he would have maybe stated that in the first place when he was asked to hit the stage, and also we are not sure about the platinum and gold singles, but we hear you Dreezy. Jacquees also took time to respond to Ella Mai just using emojis clearly showing he is not worried about he she feels about him covering her songs.
As you can imagine Twitter has nothing but jokes on the situation with some still feeling Jacquees’ version of the song is “better” while others are siding with Ella Mai. You can check out the gallery below to see the fallout.
