With Mike Will’s Ransom project with all new music dropping next week on Dec. 15th and Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife scheduled to release January 9th, the producers seems to already be looking forward to his next project. Speaking with XXL, Mike Will revealed that he and Future have a joint mixtape in the works titled Ape Shit. Here is what he had to say:
“It’s like a tape, really. Just something to just feed the streets right quick, ’cause at the end of the day me and Future do so many different types of music.
So  I feel like it was more radio-driven and more pop, ’cause we worked on Miley’s album—I executive produced Miley’s album—then we did [Future's] album, and he just did the Ape Shit. But me and him got so many songs, so I was like, people love when me and him come together anyway. So people would love a full project of that, you know.”
