(AT) Mike WiLL Made-It has released his new mixtape, Est. In 1989 Pt. 2.5, which serves as the third installment in his ongoing mixtape series, and includes nine exclusive tracks in addition to a collection of Mike WiLL's most recent production hits.

In recent weeks, Mike WiLL Made-It has released a string of exclusives from the mixtape, and while the tape will feature nine exclusives in total, fans have already heard three: First came "I Hit That," a collaboration with Gucci Mane and Juicy J; next came "That Turn Up" with Trinidad Jame$, a song that brought Jame$' buzz to its precipice before the announced Def Jam signing; and third came "On It," a track that brought together two of the hottest rising street artists Chief Keef and Young Scooter.
Elsewhere, the tape includes fan-favorites that have dominated the charts, the clubs, and the streets alike - Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance," Future's "Turn On The Lights" - and also explores the pop and R&B work that Mike WiLL has been doing, with tracks like Rihanna's "Pour It Up" and Brandy's "Do You Know What You Have?," and even rap-R&B hybrids, like Future's "Neva End (Remix)," which features Kelly Rowland.
Perhaps most importantly, Est. In 1989 Pt. 2.5 is a look at what may soon be some of the biggest singles of early 2013. Mike WiLL's previous tape, Est. In 1989 Pt. 2, featured tracks like 2 Chainz' "No Lie," "Bandz A Make Her Dance," Future's "Neva End," and others - all before they became ubiquitous. Continuing that trend, Pt. 2.5 includes an exclusive single from Kelly Rowland, "Number One," in addition to never-before-heard tracks from Gucci Mane, Future, and others. Also featured is Juicy J's recently "Show Out," a track that features Big Sean and Young Jeezy poised to become Juicy's next hit. Download the mixtape here.
