Mike WiLL Made It has been teasing fans on and off over the past weeks with new tracks and exclusives from his forthcoming mixtape, Est. In 1989. Now, the Marietta-born, Atlanta-based producer is excited to announce a December 27th release date for the tape, and also give fans the latest single, “Who’s Fuccin’ Wit Me,” a song that features legendary Dogg Pound Gang rappersDaz Dillinger & Kurupt.
“Daz reached out, just to tell me that he respected what I’ve been doing,” explains Mike, discussing how the song came together. “I told him I’d been respecting what they’ve been doing for years – they’re legends – so let’s work. Kurupt and Daz came through on this one, knocked it out instantly.”
Throughout his career, Mike has lent his sound to a variety of up-and-coming artists, not least of all being Future, for his recent Big Boi– and Young Jeezy-featuring single “Ain’t No Way Around It” and a host of other tracks, but Mike gets just as much gratification out of working with artists he followed as a youngster. “It’s always fun working with hot artists, or discovering new talent,” notes WiLL, “but it can be even better working with the artists you grew up listening to and admiring.”
The song is also a statement of sorts for Mike WiLL, a message to those who have his style pigeonholed as strictly southern. “I can fuck with any coast – any style of hip-hop,” he remarks, “and I can make something dope.”
