Producer Mike WiLL Made-It went from big to huge in a few short years. He started his career with eccentric MC Gucci Mane and then quickly worked his way up the latter, producing beats for Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and Kanye West. Earlier this year, he served as the co-executive producer on Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz album. Now, he’s closing out the year with a remix of Future’s “Sh!t,” which adds P. Diddy and Schoolboy Q to the mix and is off the upcoming #MikeWiLLBeenTrill mixtape.
“Sh!t” has been released in several versions, including one with a controversial Drake verse. This incarnation is still rooted in Mike Will Made It’s thick trap beats, with a simple drum part driving the song forward through layered synth beds that create a massive sound. Future starts the attack, calling out faux-gangstas with a loose, explosive delivery that makes him sound at times more like a barking Rottweiler than an MC. Diddy is in classic form, delivering unadorned, literal lines that make it clear that Diddy gets what Diddy wants. Schoolboy Q’s pinched voice contrasts with the deeper tones of the other MCs. He spits out raspy, rapid verses that quickly abandon the beat only to snap back in line. Haters watch out.
#MikeWiLLBeenTrill will be available here on December 23rd.
