Followers of DJ Mustard's Instagram may have noticed a slight change in his appearance; the soft-spoken purveyor of "ratchet" music has dropped over 100 pounds. During an interview on daytime talk show "The Real," he explained that his love for designer clothes inspired and his rapidly growing young son inspired him to lose the weight.

“I like dressing in designer clothes and it’s hard to buy them if you are overweight,” he said. “And I got tired of like going in the stores and then it was like I couldn’t fit in anything. And overall, I wanted to be healthy. And you know, my son runs around the house and I wanted to be able to catch him.”

He emphasized that the key to his weight loss was diet. “I did a lot of water. I did no carbs at all. Basically no sugar.” He added that he got weight-loss tips from Dr. Dre and initially didn't exercise. “I didn’t start working out until I started seeing results. And I was like, 'I got to keep this going.'"
