Future

Album: We The Best Forever (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This track finds Khaled hooking up with five young MCs - Ace Hood, Meek Mill, Wale, Vado and Big Sean. He explained to Billboard magazine: "I call it the 'Future' because I feel like these are the young guys that are coming up in the game, they're putting out hit records, they're hustling and they're doing a great job. I felt like they all needed to be on one track. There's no hook. Everybody's having fun, spitting some bars. Big Sean's got his own style. Ace Hood's got his own style. Meek, Wale and Vado… It's just one of them hip-hop records that hip-hop will appreciate."
