Legendary producer, Mike WiLL Made-It, is the man behind the upcoming soundtrack for Creed II, starring Michael B. Jordan. When Mike spoke with reporters from TMZ, he said it was going to destroy.
As hip-hop fans know, Mike just won a Grammy with Kendrick Lamar for their work together on the song, “Humble,” released off of his critically acclaimed album, D*MN.
Actor Sylvester Stallone gave the task for scoring music for the film to Mike Will, and Mike said he couldn’t be any more ready to complete the music for the movie.
According to the producer, “the soundtrack is crazy,” and every song on it has the “gut feeling” like “you’re going to fight through something.” On the 21st of November, the film is coming out, and Mike stated it wasn’t going to be just an ordinary soundtrack.
He wants the music to be just as engaging as the film itself. Fans of the producer know that he’s produced some of the most popular songs of the last decade, including “Black Beatles,” “Powerglide,” “Mercy,” “No Lie,” “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” “Pour It Up,” “Love Me,” “Body Party,” “We Can’t Stop,” “Formation,” and “Humble.”
His reputation in the industry continues to grow following years of hard work. Mike got his start when he was just 14-years-old producing songs on his Korg ES1, which his dad bought for him at a local music shop.
Later in life, the producer bought more sophisticated gear, including the Akai MPC1000, the Korg Triton, and the Yamaha Motif. At the age of 16, Mike began taking his music around to recording studios in Atlanta, trying to sell his tracks to bigger artists.
At first, most people ignored him, but Gucci Mane caught wind of his music eventually and ended up being the first rapper to give him money for one of his beats. Gucci invited the music-maker to work with him at Patchwerk studios in Atlanta.
