While Trap-enthusiasts anticipate the imminent March release of Mike WiLL Made It‘s sophomore studio album and follow up to his mixtape ‘Ransom‘, today, we receive the latest single from the album, “Gucci On My“.
Atlanta native 21 Savage provides a slow chorus but when he gets to his verse, it’s energetic and reminds me a lot of his contribution to the DJ Scream joint “LiT“. West Coast rapper YG also gives Mike WiLL a taste of Bompton on the single. His flow bounces on the beat and is a perfect contrast to each sub-genre of rap. Lastly, everyone’s favourite ‘C U L T U R E‘ advocates, Migos, provide their regular quick-paced verses with their always entertaining triplet-flow.
While the beat is, in Mike WiLL fashion, simplistic, it ultimately does bang. The airy 808s, screeching synth and high-pitched hi-hats allow all the emcees to bring their own wave as well as increase the hype for ‘Ransom 2’.
