[With the Team USA men's basketball squad dominating anything in their way at the London Olympics, Atlanta producer Mike Will Made It gives SOHH readers his thoughts on the new potential Dream Team and why gold awaits LeBron James and company.]
I've been watching basketball [this Olympics]. They've been doing a real good job. I feel like they're the closest thing to the Dream Team.
I love where basketball is right now. I f*ck with Lebron James. I really f*ck with Kevin Durant. That's the homie. That's a personal homie. I talked to him the other day. I just wanted to shout him out.
But as far as the Olympic go, man, I love Lebron. Lebron is really doing his thing. He's underrated, but at the same time people know what it is with him. They don't want to give him the proper credit he deserves just because of the ring situation, but now he finally got himself a ring so he's really starting to prove himself and build his brand.
I just love what he's doing right now. His sneaker game is off the chain, and his basketball game is off the chain right now. He's really trying to get focused. I think with him being so talented, he was really just focusing on trying to control his game.
Now, I feel like he's starting to get his game under control, and starting to get into that state of mind where he gets real focused. I love what he's doing out there on the court. But this USA team right now, is really talented. I don't think there's been a USA team like this since the Dream Team.
I think we're going to win it this year. They've been smoking out teams by 30s and 40s, and all that different kind of stuff. They've been doing a good job. I feel like they should go 'head and win the medal for this year.
Early in 2011, Mike WiLL produced "Tupac Back," a song featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill that wound up becoming a single from Maybach Music Group's album, Self Made, Vol. 1. Artists including Chris Brown, Jadakiss, Tyga, Jim Jones, Joell Ortiz, and more have since remixed the song. Currently, Mike is in the studio with Ludacris, Future, Yo Gotti, Rick Ross, and others, as they prep their albums.
