Back in ‘97, the great Biggie Smalls opined that, far from buying happiness, Mo Money simply led to Mo Problems. Masspike Miles, however, sees things a little differently – as he explains on new mixtape single We Made It, fame and fortune have treated him pretty damn well thus far. A soulful, chime-laced instrumental by Twice As Nice sets an appropriately swanky mood for this high-rolling track, which finds the R&B up-and-comer celebrating his triumphs over adversity, and reveling in the luxuries his hard work has earned him. Unsurprisingly, Maybach Music
boss Rick Ross makes an appearance, indulging in some characteristically luxurious stunting on the front, and up-and-comer Smoke Bulga rounds out the guest lineup, managing to sound gangster despite comparing his clips to pretty-boy vampire Edward Cullen. Is this triumphant track hit material, or is Masspike Miles celebrating prematurely? I’ll leave that for you to decide. If you’re digging it, stay tuned for the latest on Miles’ Superfly: Rhythm&Streets (Gangsta Grillz Special Ed.), which has yet to receive a solid drop date.
