Mike WiLL Made-It Vows To Make $3 Billion By 40

Mike WiLL Made-It also says Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine are OGs to him.

Mike WiLL Made-It says he looks up to certain business-minded people in the music industry, including Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, who were part of Apple's acquisition of Beats for more than $3 billion in May.

“We’ve had plenty of talks," Mike says of Iovine during an interview with BusinessWeek. "I told him, he and Dre are the OGs. They’re opening up doors for people like me.”

Mike WiLL says he hopes to follow in their billion dollar footsteps. 

"Now I know I’m going to make $3billion by the time I’m 40," he says.

How does he plan on doing this? He says he has different ways of attaining wealth.

“I tell people, ‘You gotta look at me as a producer and a businessman, like an executive or some CEO-type shit. It’s like I have three different brains," he explains. 

During the article, Mike also explains how he helped Miley Cyrus find her sound. 

“I was like, ‘Yo, use that country twang. I hear it, but you are trying to hide it,’" he says. "So she started using her country twang. That made it all-the-way dope.”

Another person that he's helped is Future. In the piece, Future says "Mike's beats helped" him develop his singing style.

    mike, you couldnt have predicted where you are today 5 years ago... so how can you possibly predict the next 20 years with absolute certainty. "executives" are laughing at you

    mike will and the eardrummers are good producers but their time at the top is already done. producers tend to have a very short window these days, dj mustard is that dude right now but by next year it's gonna be someone else.

      Mike's beats are a bit better than Mustard's.
    • Versus
      They're both wack, but Mustard is a new low point in beat making. Worst, most generic beats ever.

    Ambition is great to have,especially early in the game.However you also gotta be in constant touch with reality or life will compel you to,Mr Mike. Heavyweights like Puffy,Jay-Z,Russell Simmons have been very successful,however it took many years to get to the net worth (100 million +)they currently possess...and I'm sure they all wanna be billionaires but that hasn't happened for any of them yet.Just make as much as you can while you are still hot as a producer...and talk less.
