PREMIERE: Mikey Dollaz and Salva “Waddup/Who Betta”
Pray for salvation
There’s something in the water in Chicago. The energy that a lot of their artists come with can be infectious (Chance The Rapper), grimy (L.E.P. Bogus Boys-R.I.P.), or in your face raw. Mikey Dollaz can be seen as the new ambassador for the last variety. The drill rapper has put his boisterous demeanor in a chokehold, and now he’s continuing to explore equally cutting and heavy production by working with trapped-out DJ and producer Salva.
Mikey and Salva have worked prior to “Waddup/Who Betta” on his “Forever Be Dat Guy” track with King Louie. It seems that that session was only the start to more work between the two of them. They plan on releasing a complete project this summer. While “Waddup/Who Betta” won’t be on it, it gives us reason to believe that the final product will be something you won’t want to miss. The production from Salva constantly shifts as Mikey talks that reckless talk, then for the second half of the song they both pull on their ski masks to get to work.
Mikey related the story behind recording the track to us and his penchant for having no hooks:
I recorded both of them at a 12-hour session a while back. It was epic. We went krazy off the flatts n Hennessy. I recorded “Fuck Me Right” in that session too. Both of these songs don’t got hooks cuz I love not using hooks. It’s easier for me to go krazier that way cuz I turn all the way up without havin to stop da energy cuz of da hook. I’m dropping an all no hook mixtape soon so watch out for it.
While you wait for the summer, you can check out Mikey Dollaz’ last project, Picture Me Rollin’.
