Maybe there is still hope. Mike said that Tarek “had my attention!”

Plus, he still had a better near-partnership than the one that he nearly formed. Lil Yachty

Mike recalled onDown in the DMs, “He hits me up and he’s like, ‘Yo, fam, I want to work with you.’ It’s happened! Lil Yachty and “The Situation!”

The pair exchanged numbers, and one day, Mike got a call from the rapper asking if he owned cell phone patents. 

Yes, there are cell phone patents. 

“I was wondering if I should tell Lil Yachty about my cell phone patents in order to continue this conversation.” Mike laughed. “And then I was like, you know what, I don’t own cell phone patents, I own trademarks—you know, ‘The Situation’ and I’m one of the forefathers of ‘Gym, Tanning and Laundry’—so then I told him, I’m like, ‘Listen, I don’t own cell phone patents.'”
