Miley is not only showing off her rap skills in Mike WiLL Made It’s video for ’23.’ They video leaked on Sept. 24, and then was tweeted out from Miley herself — and it shows a side of her we’ve never seen!
The audio of “23” dropped back in August, and we were shocked to hear Miley Cyrus‘ rap skills. Mike WiLL Made It‘s song, which also features Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J is mostly Miley rapping — and of course, there are some raunchy lyrics.
Miley Cyrus Feat. On Mike Will Made It’s ’23’ — New Video
Miley looks sexy and basketball-chic in the new video for “23,” the hit song by producer Mike Will Made It. With a saavy Naughty by Nature reference, Miley rocked out in a sexy Michael Jordan jersey — and we’re obsessed with this new look.
In a new interview, Mike reveals that Rock City actually wrote Miley’s rap verse.
“Me and Rock City were coming up with the song, and Wiz Khalifa and Juicy liked it,” Mike told Fader magazine. I was like, I’m gonna let Miley hear this and see if she wants to get on it. I was like, Man, you can’t pull it off. And she was like, Yeah I can. We just made sure she stayed in the right pockets and rode the beat right. Rock City wrote her verse. He made it to match her.”
Miley’s Rap Verses In ’23’
I be in the club standing on the couch
In them Wolf Grays like it’s my house
Drinking out the bottle, I got no respect
Looking like a model, you just got a check
I back it up, cause I don’t give a f–k
If you’re a lame, that’s a shame you can’t hang with us
I’m MC Hammer fly, you can’t touch
J’s so fly I should work at Flight Club
Put on my J’s and dance the whole night away
I’m naughty by nature like I’m hip-hop hooray
With my hands in the sky, I wave ‘em from side to side
My feet on the floor, I’m ’bout to turn up now
I’m in the club high off purp with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt with my J’s on
What do you think of the new video?
