While Future’s “Move That Dope” featuring Skateboard P, Pusha and Casino was one of the better tastings of Future’s Honest opus, Mr. Happy was reluctant to attach his verse to the Mike Will Made It produced cut.
Rightfully so, Pharrell had plenty reason to be hesitant being on a track mentioning the service of Ye. With “Happy” sitting pretty in the faces of corporate america and the Oscars coming up, Williams didn’t want the backlash of the aggressive street anthem.
Future tells Billboard of convincing P to hop on the beat
“It was a difficult situation for him,” Future recalls. “He was going to the Oscars, and whatever he was in was a different music space, and to get him to do a verse on a song with that subject matter was difficult. He was like, ‘Man, I don’t know if I should do this, ’cause I don’t want, like, a big backlash on me. I love this song, but I don’t want a backlash.’ I was like, ‘Man, no, it’s a positive message. The verse is telling people to let everything go. You have a message that’s positive throughout your verse. I think people need to hear that, ’cause your voice is such a big voice in hip-hop.’ And he was down with it in the end.”

I’m truly convinced Mr. Poose is in his own bubble let alone universe. Aside from thinking his lyrical prowess tops Mr. Carter (hey everyone is entitled to their own opinion…even it’s complete bullshit), the Brooklyn rapper says if taking over HOT 97’s Summer Jam ’14 is on his plate Sunday, June 1st? Then that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
Oh, you were under a rock last year? Well Pap jumped out on Kendrick’s set to the surprise of EVERYONE that was in attendance at hip-hop’s Super Bowl. From the good folks at HOT 97, to the goons in the high heights of the cheap seats, NO ONE knew what was going on when Pap and his smiley face pendant graced the historical stage.
One would think Pap would keep clear of Summer Jam this year since they’re probably trying to repeat last years fiasco, but nah- Pap wants back in on the action. Peep what Pap told XXLMag.com earlier today!
You never know,” he said, laughing, when asked if he had plans for this year’s festival. “I’m kind of like spontaneous; you never know what Papoose might do, it depends on how I’m feeling on a particular day. If I feel like coming out, I’m coming out; if I don’t I’ll fall back, same thing as last year. Like I did last year—I take what I want. So if I decide to take over this shit this year, that’s what I’m gonna have to do. I was the headliner last year, you know what I mean? [Laughs] By choice.”
