Mustard has been honored by his hometown of South Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, the City of L.A. declared June 19 "Mustard Day," in recognition of the hit-maker's success and commitment to the community. The declaration ceremony took place held in City Hall chambers, where Mustard's family, friends, and fans gathered to show their support.

"I never would have imagined having a day in the city I was born and raised in," he said during the presentation. "I am just super grateful and happy that I could even be named, or have a day in this city, because everything I do is for the city."

In addition to receiving his very own day, Mustard was also named the ambassador of Boys & Girls Club of Metro Los Angeles.

"I am truly excited to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Los Angeles," he added. "They are truly doing the important work to prepare youth to graduate from high school with a plan to support them in becoming the next generation of leaders in our community. Mentors, like my Uncle Tyrei, helped me see the possibilities of a career in music and production—I want to do the same for thousands of youth at the Clubs and help them fulfill their own personal dreams."
