This Summer, Mike WiLL Made It is taking a break from providing folks with hits to drop off a brand new instrumental-driven EP through his EarDrummers Entertainment label. As the title suggests, there will be no actual verses on the project but Mike promises some “high-profile” artists will be providing hooks to his “version of jazz.”
When I was growing up, all the producers that were big at the time, I used to like hearing their instrumentals. With the Est. In 1989 series, and now with #FuckVerses, I wanted to show people the growth; from rap, to now R&B and Pop and Rock, my sound is so diverse, and these projects allow me to give my fans music and show off my growth at the same time.
My father would always make me listen to Jazz. With some songs in Jazz, the track might just be instrumental, or, after a few minutes, an artist might start suddenly singing- it was just open that way, and that’s how this project will be for me.
Bobby Ray grabs a few folks for the remake of his Mike WiLL-produced banger. Hustle Gang’s G.D.O.D. tape drops this Tuesday (May 7th). Also, head down bottom for that lyrics video to “Headband,” which was unceremoniously yanked off the YouTube a few days ago.
Over a decade after originally connecting on “Sippin’ On Some Syrup” Juicy J liberates an unheard verse from the late Pimp C and replaces Big Sean with T.I. for the official remix to his Mike Will Made It-produced banger.
Ciara is next up to enlist Future and Mike WiLL Made It as she grabs the duo for her latest single. And for those wondering where Struggle Falsetto’s struggle falsetto is, CiCi’s boyfriend only provided his pen (thankfully). One Woman Army, coming soon.
As expected (to anyone with a hint of common sense), Rihanna’s Mike WiLL Made It produced banger is set to have an all-star remix on the horizon. According to ThisIsRNB, RiRi has enlisted 2 Chainz, Juicy J, T.I. and best buddies Rick Ross and Young Jeezy for the official remix to her Unapologetic single. If this all holds true, who do you think will have the best verse? The way T.I. has been going in lately, my money’s on the Trouble Man.
Groove Chambers tells a hilarious story of being tired and wanting to give up. Then out of thin air, an image of Mike Will appeared and told him to “Turn Up Fool.” He then proceeded to make beats for the next four hours. Mike explains why he believed that actually happened.
The producer of the moment took to Twitter to announce that he’s began working on his next project, the third installment of his Est. in 1989 series. Look for the first single “23″ to drop soon and according to the ATLien… it’s NOT RIGHT.
