Mike WiLL Made It’s 25 Best Beats So Far
“Tupac Back” Meek Mill Featuring Rick Ross
Let’s ignore the audacity of the title (and the entire song altogether) and focus on the threatening beat that could probably resurrect Pac with its strength. Let’s play it a few more times and see if he does come back to tell these dudes, “Um, you’re not me.”
“Mercy” Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz
The chopped and screwed ad libs coughing up “Lamborghini Mercy…your chick she’s so thirsty.” The Super Beagle “Dust A Soundboy” sample. Need we say more. This beat will have you shouting “Have mercy!” like Uncle Jesse on Full House.
“No Lie” 2 Chainz Featuring Drake
A simple synth beat with a complex message. Okay not really, but 2 Chainz and Drake’s pledge of honesty was only enhanced by Mike WiLL’s hypnotic beat that flowed like truth serum.
“Bandz A Make Her Dance” Juicy J Featuring Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz
Juicy J’s career got a hefty resuscitation thanks to this lil’ beat right here. As the song starts as calm, it absolutely explodes into an all out stripper anthem. That’s just how Mike WiLL does it. He’ll have anyone jumping on the pole.
“Pour It Up” Rihanna
It’s not hard to make RiRi sound like a gangsta given the right kind of beat, but Mike WiLL gave her the extra umph with this one. Rihanna’s repetitive “Pour it up, pour it up” ricochets off the beat like she’s firing off a gun at the club. Or flinging empty bottles.
