Atlanta producer Mike-WiLL Made-It released his first official album today, and it features a star-studded list of rap contributors. Ransom 2 was originally supposed to be a mixtape released in January 2016, but the platinum-selling producer postponed the release so he could feature Gucci Mane, a long-time friend and collaborator. Over that time he built up more impressive collaborations and turned the project into a full album.
The wait was absolutely worth it though, as that song now brings together Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, and Rae Sremmurd on the same track. The 17-track project feature some of the biggest names in hip-hop including Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and many more. Make WiLL has made himself a staple in hip-hop over the past few years producing tons of artists' hits and brings out this star-studded crew for his own project.
Mike Will brings on Rae Sremmurd, who he discovered and signed to his label Ear Drummers. He actually even convinced them to make their artist name the backwards spelling of his label. Mike Will has had a strong involvement with Rae Sremmurds releases and has word closely with tons of high profile artists like Kanye, Future, Rihanna, Big Sean, Pusha T, Gucci Mane and many more.
Mike WiLL’s production ranges from minimal trap beats to hard-hitting bass lines, and he makes everyone sound natural over them. The entire project brings more of the ATL sound that’s dominating the charts right now, so check out these songs before you hear them all over the radio this summer. Enjoy!
