With music award season quickly approaching, listeners may find themselves asking which artists made the best impression in 2014. In hip-hop and pop though, the question seems more straightforward: what didn’t Mike WiLL make this year? Having produced for nearly every big name and assisting burgeoning acts alike in 2014, Mike WiLL Made-It has certainly put a hard-hitting stamp on modern rap – and its subsequent crossovers. HYPETRAK was able to catch the Georgia native for a rare interview with the man behind the music, discussing his forthcoming Established in 1999, Made it Out The Basement Part 3 LP, helping Gucci Mane with his hooks, and working with JAY Z. Enjoy the video above, then head over to HYPETRAK to listen to Mike WiLL’s latest mixtape, Ransom.
