Mike WiLL Made It"War Ready" featuring Jeezy and Tracy T
Mike WiLL Made It: DJ Khaled, man, he reached out to me that Ross was working on his new project. He knew me and Ross had previous hits before with "Tupac Back," "King Of Diamonds” and “Marble Floors.” He actually did all three of those records at the same time. Khaled reached out to me and told me he had a list of who Ross wanted to work with. I [got] to work with Rick Ross, he’s a legend and his albums are always crazy. We make great music together.

I came to Miami to fuck with Ross and Khaled and went to Ross’ house and went through some beats but he didn’t hear anything right away. He reached out to me and said that he needed something crazy, with the crazy 808s, the meanest beat you can possibly do. "I’m about to do a song with a game changer, someone who you might not even think I would do a song with." I had a idea that it was Jeezy. So I went through some beats and sent it to him. He told me he heard one right away and was excited about the song. At the end it came out good. I was proud of the song. I started working on the 808s, then Jeezy sent his vocals in. We just kept mixing the record. Everybody had their opinions until down to the wire with the way they wanted to sound. Everybody just worked hard when it came to this record. We knew that it was going to be a moment in hip-hop. It’s always good to see rappers come back together when people don’t think that they work with each other anymore.
