Atlanta’s superproducer Mike Will Made-It has made a glorious return to Hip-Hop and global pop music. The record producer, born Michael Len Williams II in 1989, behind influential rap records such as “Tupac Back” by Meek Mill, “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd “23” feat. Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa & Three Six Mafia’s Juicy J and more is gearing up for a full-length LP while just getting off another.
Earlier this month, Made-It linked up with pop superstar Miley Cyrus on her eighth LP ‘Endless Summer Vacation’. The ‘Bangerz’ record producer led the production on “Thousand Miles”, “Violet Chemistry” and “Muddy Feet” feat. Sia on Miley’s LP. However, this isn’t even the beginning for the producer behind Kanye West’s “Mercy”.
Made-It decided to further pump it up with Rae Sremmurd & Pharrell Williams on “Tanisha”. Released on March 10th, 2023, the same day as Miley’s long-awaited album, the record is the lead single to the iconic Swae Lee & Slim Jxmmi-led Hip-Hop group’s upcoming “Sremm 4 Life” album. Slated to drop on April 7th, 2023, the LP will be Rae Sremmurd’s fourth body of work and serve as the follow-up to their 2018 record “SR3MM”.
Notably, Made-It’s last LP dates back to five years. The legendary producer led the soundtrack to the second Creed film, titled “Creed II: The Album”. Heavily influenced by rap music and executive produced by Mike Will Made It, the soundtrack, released on November 18th 2018, featured guest appearances by Nas, Lil Wayne, Crime Mob, Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Pharrell Williams, A$ap Rocky, A$ap Ferg, J. Cole and more.
Co-incidentally, the soundtrack to the third Creed film, titled “Creed III: The Soundtrack” arrived just a week ahead of Made-It’s far-reaching return to music. Executive produced by J.Cole’s Dreamville, the LP begins with ‘Culture’ by Mez, Symba and Top Dawg Entertainment’s young emcee REASON. Besides the ‘Sauce’ rapper, Dreamville has linked up with Big Sean and EST Gee as well.
J. Cole makes a solo appearance on the ‘Adonis Interlude (The Montage)’. Clocking at just short of two minutes, the track samples Dr. Dre’s legendary rap record ‘The Watcher’ from his top-selling LP ‘2001’ – often referred to as ‘The Chronic 2001’ or ‘The Chronic II’. Further, Dreamville’s leading artists Ari Lennox. Bas, EARTHGANG, OG DAVY, JID and more find crucial spots across the soundtrack.
Look out for the “Sremm 4 Life” LP by Rae Sremmurd & Mike Will Made-It on April 7th, 2023.
