Artist of the Week: Mike WiLL Made It


The Atlanta-based producer says that he wants his upcoming album, 'Est. in 1989 Pt. 3 (The Album)' to have the same impact as Dr. Dre's 1992 release called 'The Chronic'.

It's been a big year for Mike WiLL Made It. After years of working to produce music for other artists, including Rihanna, Future, Kanye West and most recently Miley Cyrus, the 24-year-old Atlanta producer is now focusing on his own music.

Mike, who serves as executive producer of Miley's "Bangerz", is currently working on his own debut project. Entitled "Est. in 1989 Pt. 3 (The Album)", Mike's first full-length album is scheduled to arrive later this year via Interscope Records.

Mike has a high expectation of his upcoming release. In a new interview with MTV, he said that he wanted his album to have the same impact as Dr. Dre's 1992 album, "The Chronic". "I feel like with this album, the expectations are high, so it's like when Dre came with 'The Chronic' he gave the people something and it changed culture, it changed music," he explained.

Mike also revealed his plan to make his album a triple-disc release. "With my album I gotta make sure I give them a moment," he added. "I wanna drop a triple disc. I'm dropping triple disc, period. Not wanting to, I'm dropping a triple disc."

"Est. in 1989 Pt. 3 (The Album)" has so far spawned a single called "23". The track features guest vocals from Miley, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J. The music video, which was debuted last month, is dedicated to Chicago Bull's former No. 23 Michael Jordan.

According to Mike, Michael personally called him to praise the video that sees Cyrus invading a high school gym while wearing some modified Chicago Bulls jerseys.
