Mike Dreams - Wave to ‘Em

Posted about 6 years ago
Producer:
Beatnick & K-Salaam
Album:
Just Waking Up

Ever-grinding up-and-comer Mike Dreams may have a long and arduous journey ahead of him, but doubters who think they can break his stride are in for a rude awakening – as he explains on leak numero dos off his sophomore set, “I ain’t gonna wait for ‘em, I’ll just Wave to ‘Em.” Making its world premiere here in the Booth, this joint finds my Minneapolis neighbor trading the ambivalence of lead single Any Day Now for nose-to-the-grindstone determination. Over the wistful, soul-sampled boardwork of Twin Cities-bred production duo K-Salaam & Beatnick, the freestyle series alumnus reaffirms his intent to succeed in the game without compromising his vision, along the way showing off his finely-honed punchline game: “ I plan well – labels better play their hands well, or you can tell ‘em that it’s No Deal… Howie Mandel.” Complete with hook/backing vocals by Toyebi Adedipe and the kids of the Northside Minne-ap YMCA’s Beacon Program (which Mike is a part of), this joint and much more will be found on Dreams’ DJBooth.net/FlüD Watches-presented Just Waking Up LP, which hits our mixtape page for free streaming and download Oct. 14.
