Being Hands On

Mike WiLL: “I’m only 22-years-old, without any kind of publishing deal, and I’m really hands-on with everything that I do. Being independent has helped me, because I can do what I want to do and work with whoever I want to work with, when I want to work with them. I get to really establish those relationships and go with my gut.

“For example, if I was signed to someone else, they may have brushed Future off before he popped, and we wouldn’t have the relationship that we have now. Since we met, we’ve kept it 1000 with each other, and now he and I are like brothers. Same goes for me and 2 Chainz. Being able to make your own decisions gives you leverage, once you’re successful.”
