Mike Will talk to XXL about the production of 50cent single “Girls Gone Wild.” See the questions and their answers below.
How was it producing 50’s new joint, “Girls Gone Wild”?
MW: I was in the studio with Jeremih, he had the record first and started going in on it. It was half way done and then 50 had heard the record and was like, “Yo let me rock to this shit.” [So Jeremih] hit me and said, “50 said he might wanna jump on that joint.” I was like, “Word?” So we waited it out a couple weeks and then [Jeremih] hit us back and said, “I think 50 want that joint, he working on a new album.” I’m just waiting for it to play out but, I had let Ludacris hear the joint too, [and] they were messing with the joint. Next thing you know, 50 people reached out and we handled the paperwork on it and then I heard the record with 50 on it.
What was your response when you heard it?
“This record is crazy.” Shit is crazy. The way 50 did it, it’s just a whole ‘nother sound. He kinda switched it up from the first one, but I like what he did. It’s like a whole new sound, you never heard 50 come that way and it was really creative to see him on the animated side. Its a fun record, its live, it will go crazy in the club, it will go crazy in the summertime barbecues, and all that. It’s just a crazy record. He definitely painted the picture, and you know what, guess what the name of that beat was?
