Ransom 2, the official debut album from Atlanta hip-hop producer and rapper Mike WiLL Made-It, is out now through Eardrumma/Interscope Records.
As could be expected considering the multitude of artists Mike (born Michael Len Williams II) has worked with during his ascendance to the upper echelons of the music production business, a heap of guest artists contribute to Ransom 2. From Atlanta, there’s Future, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Migos, Gucci Mane, Eearz, Rae Sremmurd andTrouble. From parts elsewhere, Big Sean, Swae Lee, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Pharrell and Rihanna head the pack.
Nor is it a surprise that Mike is the main producer on all 17 cuts, but he does utilize several of his in-house Ear Drummer cohorts to assist, including Marz, DJ FU, Pluss, GT, 30Rox and Ducko McFli. Atlanta studio talents Micah Weston and EZ Elpee also have their hands in the pie.
