Listen: Mike WiLL Made It Rounds Up Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar & Future for ‘Buy the World’
By Courtney E. Smith
When Mike WiLL Made It decided to do an All-Star track, he did not mess around.
The Miley Cyrus producer, who works predominantly in hip hop, rounded up some of the best in the game today for his new track “Buy the World” – including guest spots from Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar and Future.
It’s one of those slow tempo summer jams, where a lazy beat is paired with a double timing drum machine, to give the whole thing a feeling of always moving forward and that especially highlights Wayne’s MC style.
Future, for whom Mike WiLL Made It handled production duties for his album Honest, pushes the hook in his slightly draggy, slightly druggy way. Lamar drops a verse that almost doesn’t sound like himself – until that Sally Mae reference, of course.
The track, which follows the single “23,” marks the second thing we’ve heard from his forthcoming album Est. in 1989 Part 3.
