As a grammar pedant, Mike WiLL Made It is about as annoying as a name could be. It mixes tenses and features misplaced capital letters! The explanation for the odd moniker is that the American producer's real name is Mike Williams and he's known as Mike WiLL for short. 24-year-old Mike has been working with established artists since 2011 and is known for his "strip club sound." He has been talked about much more recently thanks to his work on We Can't Stop by Miley Cyrus, Pour It Up by Rihanna and the new album Magna Carta… Holy Grail by Jay-Z, but Mike is also an artist and releases his own debut single 23 in August. The song is yet to premiere but reportedly features a rap from Miley. An album is expected to follow later in the year on Mike's own EarDrummers label.
