Mike WiLL Made It has more hours in the day than the rest of us. Or at least it seems that way. He's had yet another great year, with various record placements, the growth of his label, and the unavoidable tidal wave of success that Rae Sremmurd has been riding on.
He's capping 2014 off with his new mixtape, Ransom, that's set to drop Dec. 15, and he told us that it will have an underground, gritty sound and feature artists like Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Future, Two-9, Rae Sremmurd, iLOVEMAKONNEN, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, and more. As you can see he's bringing a bunch of his homies into the fold for this winter release, and then he's got another album coming in 2015.
He's also been busy working on music for some of rap's biggest names, most notably Nicki Minaj. Mike WiLL spoke about working on "I Lied," a track off Nicki's upcoming The Pinkprint album, comparing it to TLC's "Unpretty." "People aren't expecting what they are about to hear," Mike WiLL explains. "That TLC song, 'Unpretty,' how that impacted all females...and they could relate to it. It's going to be every girl's favorite song." You all will be able to hear it soon with The Pinkprint releasing the same day as Ransom.
Add that to his other projects in the works like a collab album with Future called Ape Shit, Rae Sremmurd's Sremm Life, and a couple of songs on Lil Wayne's Carter V...if it ever drops.
