Mike WiLL Made-It unleashes another blockbuster collaboration off Creed II: The Album.
After delivering “Kill ‘Em With Success” with 2 Chainz and ScHoolboy Q, the super-producer brings together the powerhouse duo of Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar for the motivational anthem “The Mantra.”
Pharrell brushes off his haters and delivers some inspirational words. “They will get none off / That bulletproof aura, knowing God is for you / So they will not get nothing off,” he sings, while K-Dot tells the “minus sign ni**as” to get out the way.
