Rappers team with Mike Will Made-It for Atlanta hitmaker’s new ‘Ransom 2’ track
Mike Will-Made It reunites with his “Black Beatles” cohorts Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane and taps Kendrick Lamar for a lithe new track, “Perfect Pint.” The song will appear on Mike Will’s upcoming LP, Ransom 2, out March 24th.
“Perfect Pint” boasts a sparse beat with light synth plunks illuminating the negative space left between Mike Will’s sharp percussion. Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi opens the track while Swae Lee handles the song’s silky hook. Gucci Mane unravels another verse of delightfully scattershot images like, “They were screaming ‘Free Gucci,’ but now that Guwop’s free/ Blue cheese, no ranch, hunduns on me.” Kendrick Lamar closes “Perfect Pint” with a dexterous verse that pays tribute to the late Shawty Lo and closes with the hilarious couplet: “Double park on the curb, I can drive but I’m lazy/ Half a pint, whole pint, gassed up, crazy, ayy.”
Ransom 2 boasts an array of guests including Rihanna, 2 Chainz, Future, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Lil Yachty, Young Thug and more. Previously, the Atlanta hitmaker shared “Gucci On My,” which features Migos, YG and 21 Savage. Ransom 2 follows Mike Will’s 2014 solo effort Ransom, though he’s remained busy as a producer, working with Rae Sremmurd, Beyoncé and more.
