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.

      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.

      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.

      And to think that we can't do anything about it besides not support her.
    • 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.
    • 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
      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.
    • Anonymous
      I think she's just another unoriginal, talentless pop bitch, so anything she outs out is crap.
    • 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.
  • Chris Etrata
    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.

    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.
    • dentaldamboy
      They are talented and unique. Im not gay, that's a fake.

      No, they're not. They're generic, unoriginal, talentless sluts who slept their way to the top.

    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 (
