After dropping out of Georgia State University to pursue a career in music, Mike Williams, best known as Mike WiLL or Mike WiLL Made It, bumped into Gucci Mane
at an Atlanta recording studio and hasn't stopped since. From that fateful meeting, he formulated a close working relationship with the Brick Squad rapper and began rubbing elbows with other popular hitmakers like 2 Chainz
, Waka Flocka Flame
. Eventually, Mike WiLL worked his way to the top ranks as a hip hop producer, armed with a resume of hits for Kanye West
, Lil Wayne
, 2 Chainz, Future and Rihanna
, plus more. He made a bold crossover to the pop realm by laying the track for Miley Cyrus'
"We Can't Stop," and recruited the raunchy singer — along with Wiz Khalifa
and Juicy J
— to jump on the lead single from his freshman LP Est. In 1989 Pt. 3 (The Album).
