Earlier this month, buzz developed about Mike Will landing the executive producer position for the Creed II soundtrack.

The soundtrack to “Creed II” will be executive produced by Mike WiLL Made-It. He’ll collaborate with composer Lugwig Göransson and music supervisors Fam Rothstein and Jen Malone on music for the film, which is due out November 21. “Creed II” is the latest chapter in the Rocky saga, following the 2015 film “Creed” which earned more nearly $110 million at the U.S. box office. The MGM movie, distributed internationally by Warner Bros. Pictures, is directed by Steven Caple Jr. and stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. (Variety)

Last week, Nas blessed fans with a hilarious pic of himself hanging out with Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone.

In a recent interview, the Queens native revealed what has motivated him to keep making music.

“I love hip-hop. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. It’s still like a dream and it’s still fresh to me. I still feel the love for it. I love the art of it. More than anything, I love the artform. That’s crazy [for hip-hop to be so popular now]. I remember when it was considered not even music. To see what it is today, I knew it would be that. [Younger influences,] I loved Jackson 5. I loved Rick James. I loved James Brown. Lots of different cool cats. [laughs] … Even if I did like a suburban life album, somebody would like it because there’s a world there that’s not being catered to. I think that would work, that might work, I got the fire underneath me.” (“Late Show With Stephen Colbert”)
