Mike WiLL Made It Defends Miley Cyrus' Raps

Mike WiLL Made It also says Miley Cyrus' raps get critiqued mainly because she is White. Mike WiLL also compares Cyrus to Madonna.

Miley Cyrus was recently featured with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J on Mike WiLL Made It's "23." Mike WiLL recently addressed Cyrus' raps on the track.

"I look at her like how I do music," Mike WiLL Made It said in an interview with Complex. "She is a fan of all music, just like I am. A lot of times, older people don’t get the new generation. The new generation will listen to a Pop song, a hard-ass hood song, and come back and listen to another Pop song. '23' is a representation of that and for those people. But, for the people that are stuck in only the Hip Hop box or only the Pop box, that song wasn’t for them. Or it’s there to break them out of their box. The fact that anybody would say anything to her about rapping, the only reason they would say that is because she’s White. And I never knew you had to be Black, White, Asian, or whatever to rap, I thought you had to just be talented. With rapping, that’s just another form of expressing your music. Whether you’re going to rap, you’re going to sing, it’s whatever you want. She still sings on that song, so it’s just another way to express it. It’s just a good song. As long as it’s good, nothing matters. She does her thing. As far as rapping goes, as long as you are telling the truth and you have a good flow, then you win."

Mike WiLL added that criticism for Cyrus is unwarranted and that she will likely be criticized for anything that she does because of the level of success she has obtained.

"People are going to hate," Mike WiLL said. "A lot of times, it’s the media that is hating and not the real people, the real people are saying, 'What’s the big deal?' Anything she does, if she claps her hands three times they will say, 'Oh man, why didn’t she clap four times?' If she came out to the [MTV] VMAs and she wasn’t twerking and she wasn’t doing all that, everybody would’ve said, 'Oh she was supposed to twerk. Why didn’t she twerk? She’s not real.' They would shoot her down regardless because she is successful.

"When you are successful you get people to talk, and when people watch you grow up and play a role on Disney, they are going to put her in that box and stay in that box," Mike WiLL continued."She’s not that character. She’s herself. It is what it is. It’s part of the world and country we live in. When you are White and successful, it’s hard for them to accept you trying to do anything Black. When you are Black and successful, you’re supposed to do some real niggerish shit, so they can talk and shoot you down. Or you are supposed to do it the White way and they will call you perfect. She’s 20 years old, a fan of music, and extremely talented and she can do anything. She just proved that."

Mike WiLL also said that working with Cyrus has acted as a learning experience for him.

"I feel like one thing she taught me was about country harmonies," he said. "She put me on different old Rock bands and Country songs and I put her on Est. 1989, old Gucci Mane mixtapes, all that shit. It was like a history lesson. I taught her how to be in different pockets. I’m 24, she’s 20, we have a long way to go. I feel like she’s the next Madonna for real. Madonna is 55? So she’s got 35 years to put in work."

Mike WiLL's label, Eardrumma Records, was recently signed to Interscope. According to Mike WiLL, his upcoming album is slated to feature several guests including will.i.am, Diddy, Future, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and more.

This is a clown, saying she's the next Madonna. Dog, shut the fuck up. You gets no respect now. Lady Gaga is the next Madonna. You really don't know what you're tALking about...

  • Gucci The realest

    Gucci Mane = realest rapper ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherfucker. Oh and i like his music so fuck you. - Mobb deep are the biggiest pussies in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g shit but never did g shit.

    hes promoting her. he produced her song of course hes gone convince ppl to listen. hes making money off the spins. but this nigga know this bitch has no talent. id rather hear my bathtub drip all night then listen to her. plus i wouldnt fuck. shes flat assed no titties joker lipstick and wack ass hair. shoo bitch shoo!!!

    • Chris Etrata

      His promotion appeared to work as Wrecking Ball, a horrible song worse than We can't stop, is going to be no. 1 on the charts. This pisses me off, songs like this can be no. 1 but not Same Love or even Get Lucky?

  • Chris Etrata

    Unfortunately, it seems like the hiphopdx population is minor in comparison to the US population. People will want to listen to miley's shit over and over. We can't Stop already peaked at no.2, matching her earlier success and Wrecking Ball, according to Billboard, is about to be no. 1 on Hot 100. This is the world we live in today where idiots like dentalbitch support talentless hacks. And I thought her 15 minutes of fame were up.

    • Chris Etrata

      No shit. Yet, songs like same love don't make it to the top ten, a song that's much more lyrical and substantial than Wrecking Ball. BTW, this song is wrecking our national IQ. I don't care if im being called a hater but this song really really really sucks hard.

    • Anonymous

      I think she's just another unoriginal, talentless pop bitch, so anything she outs out is crap.

    • Chris Etrata

      You must not have seen taylor swift. Not the best artist in the world but has more talent in the voice alone than miley cyrus in her whole body.

    • white women are the right women

      I've already jerked off to Wrecking Ball twice. Can't get enough of that fine White woman!

    • Chris Etrata

      Even if we don't contribute, she'll still go to no. 1 based on her hannah montana fans alone. Wrecking ball sucked hard for me but I want to know your opinions. For me, she can't sing a note and she didn't even write Wrecking Ball.

    • Anonymous

      And to think that we can't do anything about it besides not support her.

    • Chris Etrata

      Suicide isn't the best option. Wrecking ball may be even worse than We Can't Stop. She can't sing without autotune on it, and she doesn't even write it. The music video sucks too as it had nothing to do with what she's singing. It's just a nude no ass miley cyrus on a wrecking ball. Yet people will eat this shit up.

    Mike's beats are ok. Not the best but ok. It's the rapping that sucks usually.

  • The Music Industry

    We have been rewarding mediocrity since the beginning. We don't care about artistic merit or musical quality, we just want to make money. If a music artist isn't making us money, we shelved them or we drop them. That's how the business goes. If you can't take the heat, get out the kitchen.

  • dentaldamboy

    You're right. I am gay.

  • SMFH

    dentalboy, why are you defending a weak pop star like Miley? She makes the same generic pop garbage as other female pop stars like Rihanna, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. That's nothing for a man to be proud of, unless you're gay, which there's nothing wrong about that.

    Mile Will is officially the biggest Miley Cyrus dickrider aside from dentaldambitch.

    "The fact that anybody would say anything to her about rapping, the only reason they would say that is because shes White." Pulling the race card? Thanks, Mike Will, for proving your ignorance. So why didn't Eminem and the Beasties receive the same criticism? Why do people embrace Macklemore (

  • Anonymous

    He said it himself you don't have to be any race to rap just talented. Well she's not talented, she just happens to be Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter raised on Achy Breaky Heart money and that connect got her in Disney. At most she can interpret her training and instructions as laid out if she was talented she could at least put her own twist into it aka soul, that thing you feel missing on pop music that you probably couldn't put your finger on. From now on the name of this beatmaker (not producer) is Microwave it.

    There's no way Mike would really say that if he didn't fuck Miley. That white pussy will make niggas act and say crazy shit.

    SHE"S WACK!!! PERIOD!!! There are white female emcees like Eternia, Invincible, and Meda of Natural Habitz that are EXTREMELY DOPE!!! Check em out if you haven't BUT MILEY CYRUS!!! #STOP

  • benben

    I had respect for Mike Will till this... I am officially done with his beats. I'm done with him, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Robin Thicke, and anybody else who makes rachet music and work with her is off the list. I just don't like how they are letting a country/Pop star who is obviously trying to buy into the black community come into hip-hop they are trying to force her on to us. smh

  • iamhiphop

    No, Mike Will. You're wrong. Miley's raps aren't being criticized because she's white. It's because she's a wack, talentless pop star from Disney who'll never be taken seriously and whose dad was a one-hit wonder country singer. Beastie Boys and Eminem are white and people loved them. Even with some mediocre records, they have actual skills in rapping and made classic records. The same cannot be said about Miley. Her whole act and image is a gimmick. Don't even compare her to Madonna. I don't even like Madonna, but Madonna has more talent in one finger than Miley does in her entire body.

    • hUH

      Dentalfagboy, you are the biggest fuckin moron I've ever come across on this site. Eminem's single went Gold aLREAdy! 370 thousand sold firsT WEEk, you dumb motherfucker. it just came out like 2 weeks ago, you stupid fuck! Macklemore is an indy arTist who just went PLATINUM. Not even your favorite female rapper, lil Stayne's album is close to that. Y r u such a fAGgoT? What happened to you as a child?

    • Anonymous

      Wrong, wrong, wrong. Miley's white ass wants to be black like Rihanna. No college kids listen to this bullshit. You made that up about Eminem. Yelawolf is staying at his label and Macklemore's great. She hasn't worked at all; everything was given to her. Money doesn't make you good; Kim Kardashian has lots of money and she has zero talent at all and hasn't contribute anything to society.

    • dentaldamboy

      I aint lying shit hater. Miley is Miley wannabe and college kids bump to her all the time. I saw eminem buying copies for himself, Yelawolf about to get dropped from shady, Macklemore shit. She's worked had and makes more money than you. Unless you think you can rap better, GTFO.

    • Anonymous

      And there you go, people. dentaldambitch lies about everything again. Rihanna-wannabe Miley is fake and no college kids listens to her shit; just white girls and gay men. Macklemore and Yelawolf are dope and Eminem is not falling off (he didn't buy shit; his fans did). Quit riding Miley's dick and realize she's a garbage trust-fund baby who never worked a day in her life.

    • dentaldamboy

      Miley is miley, macklemore is wack and gay (he's married to a woman only to hide his orientation), yelawolf is shit, Eminem fell off and bought copies of Bezerk just to ensure a one week wonder (it fell off hard to no. 10 in the second week), I've seen college kids bump to Miley's dope. Don't be mad just because she makes far more money than you.

    • Anonymous

      And dentalbitch lies again. Miley is a fake Rihanna. Macklemore is dope and straight (he's married to a woman), Yelawolf is dope, Eminem has not fallen off, Berzerk went to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went gold (not bombing at all), no college kids are listening to Miley's Disney bullshit. Nothing you say is true, just lies. You calling people haters just proves you're a dickrider.

    • dentaldamboy

      You don't know shit. Miley Cyrus is Miley Cyrus, no rihanna fake. Macklemore is wack and gay. Yelawolf is shit. Eminem has indeed fallen off. Bezerk is bombing on the charts. I've seen collegues at college bumping to this dope. I'm speaking the truth. You're just hating. You need more people.

    • iamhiphop

      Still wrong, dentalbitch. Miley is a fake-ghetto Rihanna wannabe; just look at her. Everything she's doing, she took from Rihanna. Macklemore and Yelawolf are dope and Eminem has not fallen off. Nobody in the black/hip-hop community takes Miley seriously. Only little white kids and gay people listen to Miley. Her going to #2 only proves that white people listen to her, not black people. Again, I'm not hating, I'm speaking the truth. Look at yourself. You're defending a talentless Disney bitch who wants to be black. Oh, wait. I forgot. It's dentalboy, the troll. Nobody takes this guy seriously.

    • dentaldamboy

      Mike Will is right. Miley Cyrus is miley cyrus, no fake ghetto rihanna wannabe. Also, Macklemore, Yelawolf is wack and Eminem has fallen off greatly to be taken seriously anymore. I've seen black people bump to miley cyrus all the time. She will live on radio forever and she is already being taken seriously. She went to no.2 on billboard 100 for crying out loud, proof that black people take her seriously. You are hating. Hating on me and hating on her.

    • iamhiphop

      You're wrong, dentalbitch. Mile Will is in the wrong here. He made himself look like an idiot by pulling the race card. White hip-hop has been around since the Beastie Boys first came out in the 80s. Vanilla Ice made white rappers look bad. Then, Eminem came around and made whites in hip-hop be taken more seriously with classic records and his skills as an emcee. Now, hip-hop embraces white rappers, with acts like Mac Miller, Yelawolf, MGK, and Macklemore blowing up. Miley's using hip-hop to try to gain a black audience that doesn't even take her seriously. She never conquered anything; she's just another wack female pop star using gimmicks over real talent to extend her limited time in the spotlight. She went from a Disney bitch to a fake-ghetto Rihanna wannabe. She will never be taken seriously by the hip-hop community at all. I'm not hating, I'm speaking the truth.

    • dentaldamboy

      Mike WIll is right. The only white people accepted into music today are pop like eminem, and R&B like Macklemore and Robin Thicke. White hiphop isn't taken seriously. Miley Cyrus has earned a place at the elite status in just one song. She's loved hiphop throughout here life but also conquered pop and country. She has earned far more money than what you will accomplish so stop hating racist nigga.

    I ain't going to lie, Mike Will's words were so beautiful I was fighting back tears. Beautiful fit White women are the future of hip-hop culture. For far too long they have been excluded and mistreated. It's beautiful to hear a young Black man eloquently stand up and fight for the inclusion of beautiful White women. Mike Will I applaud you 1000 times over! Miley, go and get it girl, and twerk that little White booty as much as you please! This story made my day.

  • dentaldamboy

    Its what I keep telling you all. They hate miley cyrus because she starred in a disney show and the bias against new hiphop acts in general. Racism also plays a role in this. Miley cyrus is one of the best rappers alive. Mike will is one of the best producer alive. Even wack artists like k dot are turning to him for relevancy
