Today (Aug. 17), Mike WiLL Made-It unveiled a brand new single titled “Blood Moon,” which features Lil Uzi Vert. The track, which the Atlanta beatsmith co-produced alongside J. Cole and Myles Harris, is a hard-hitting hip hop-oriented number filled with rockstar bars about money, women, and more.
“Stepped in this b**ch like a killer, stepped in this b**ch in all Margiela, grip on my waist, got a damn caterpillar, Lil Uzi Vert higher than a damn pillar, white b**ch with me, I’m King Kong, she think that I am Godzilla, ring my doorbell, um, ding dong, sike, nah, b**ch, I live in a pent…”
The single is presumed to be the latest from Mike WiLL‘s forthcoming album, Michael, which was first announced back in 2020. The initial reveal was accompanied by the well-received drop “What That Speed Bout!?,” a collaboration alongside Nicki Minaj and YoungBoy Never Broke Again. CuBeatz and 30 Roc also assisted behind the boards.
When it finally arrives, Michael will follow 2017’s Ransom 2, the sequel to the 2014 mixtape Ransom. Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Young Thug, Migos, Pharrell Williams, Rihanna, and Lil Wayne were amongst the A-list features on Mike WiLL’s most recent full-length solo effort. Since then, he teamed up with Yo Gotti for Gotti Made-It and executive produced the official soundtrack for Creed II. His unique sound could also be heard across genres via heavyweights like The-Dream, Miley Cyrus, Gorillaz, and Alicia Keys.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Mike WiLL spoke on the producer’s evolution from the background to the forefront. “Where we’re at with music, people want to know more about the producer. More people are interested in how beats are made, how the song is put together,” he explained. “It’s just like food. If the food’s not put together well, it’s not going to taste good. When [music is] not being put together well, it’s not going to sound good.”
