Underpinned by a sparse, menacing drill beat, ‘W Hotel’ sees Like Mike take centre stage as he showcases his smooth flow amidst slick, unique bars from Smokepurpp and Blueface respectively. Mike drew inspiration for ‘W Hotel’ from his lifestyle of constant travel. The concept behind the song centers around Mike, his ever-changing lifestyle, and the entourage that travels with him. Smokepurpp and Blueface insert their own unique lyrics to elevate and polish the track.
During a journey that spans over 15 years, Like Mike has achieved a staggering number of career highs and secured #1 singles in a multitude of countries. His 2016 single ‘The Hum’ went platinum and a collaboration in 2017 with Ne-Yo on ‘Higher Place’ secured the #1 Billboard Dance position.
Smokepurpp initially tried his hand at producing, but after a few false starts under various monikers, he took to rapping over his own beats and started posting his tracks online while still in high school. By age 18 Smokepurpp gained exposure for songs such as ‘Samsung Jumpin‘ and ‘Ski Mask,’ which have scored millions of plays online.
L.A. rapper Blueface broke out in 2018 with several releases that highlighted his asymmetrical flow and cleverly surreal lyrical style. He made a snap decision to abandon his dreams of playing football, and in under a year went from barely contemplating music-making to being one of the more buzzed-about rappers in the game, collaborating with artists like Gunna, Rich the Kid, and now Smokepurpp and Like Mike.
‘W Hotel’ sees Like Mike continue with this new creative chapter in collaboration with a multitude of top talents in hip-hop, rap and R&B.
