MIMS - Haters You Love Me
Sometimes a song’s title says it all, and MIMS’ latest effort Haters You Love Me is one of those times. After the NY emcee failed to (so far) truly follow up on his breakthrough supersmash This Is Why I’m Hot, for many Shawn Mims came to epitomize the ringtone rap game, but lucky for MIMS all that hatred has only made him stronger; or at the very least inspired him to write songs like Haters You Love Me. With production from Rix Melody that takes a triumphant melody and underlays it with a clapping snare and soaring synths, Love Me finds MIMS sharpening his punchline game in an effort to finally put all those haters in their place: “My enemies fuel me, fans keep me gassed, so I never have to stop…Easy Pass.” That kind of attitude means that, no matter what the comments and ratings look like below, MIMS has put himself in a win-win situation. Smart man. Love him or hate him, MIMS isn’t stopping. His latest project, the SMD Mixtape Chapter 1, is due out sometime in August.
