"There's something exciting about rock n' roll," says MIMS with a smile. "Maybe I'll pick up a guitar one day and learn that craft."
MIMS' latest LP, Guilt, has a bit of a personal homage to rock music, in addition to a slew of club banging tracks that proudly stand alongside any of the "This Why I'm Hot" MCs' catchiest material.
MIMS decided to share his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive feature. Check it out below and grab Guilt in stores now.
1. Michael Jackson — Thriller
My favorite album of all-time is Michael Jackson's Thriller. That's on repeat every single day. I love how it's put together. It's not a long record. Everything is straight-to-the-point. I don't want to compare it to my Guilt album, because Thriller is one of the most successful albums of all time. However, I design my music so when you pop it in you can go from song one all the way until the end and say, "Man, I didn't hear one record that sounds the same." That's what Thriller represents for me.
2. Kanye West
3. Lil Wayne
