It’s hard to believe that Mike WiLL Made-It released his stellar body of work Ransom, two years ago. Man, that project had hits and nothing but banging bass-enthused production. I always felt like Mike WiLL never got the respect he deserved for his production and influence on the culture. But now, Iâ€™m waiting on the second installment to Ransom.
A lot has changed since Mike WiLL announced the tape would arrive soon, â€śtoo soon.â€ť On January 29, 2016, Mike said the tape would be hosted by Gucci Mane and that the tape couldnâ€™t drop without Gucci being on it.

Since that time, itâ€™s been a huge surge in popularity for Mike WiLL. The guy has always had speakers rocking, but with Gucci being let out of prison, Rae Sremmurdâ€™s popularity skyrocketing on the charts, there didnâ€™t seem to be much time for Mike to work on his own project, or at least to present a complete body of work at a precise time. Not failing to mention his community service. Mike’s everywhere.Â
Iâ€™m not rushing his efforts to put out Ransom 2. More than anything, itâ€™s a reiteration of how much fans want it to hear it. Itâ€™s only looking better and better. The guy has a Kendrick Lamar, Rae Sremmurd, and Gucci Mane collaboration on the project. Who knows if we would have received that track on Ransom 2 last year.
I’m looking forward to all of the new production and ear-defying sounds that will be featured.
All-in-all, Iâ€™m excited for 2017â€Šâ€”â€ŠEar Drummers are going to have this year boominâ€™ and everything will surface when the time is right. Let’s not forget, Two9 is dropping off that new new soon. We shall wait patiently for Ransom 2.
