Songfacts®:

  • Future and Lil Uzi Vert first worked together in 2016 on "Too Much Sauce," the lead single from DJ Esco's collaborative album with Future, Project E.T, on which Uzi Vert rapped two guest verses.

    That song was the start of a long-standing musical relationship between the pair that has yielded a number of cuts, including "Wassup," "Over Your Head" and "Patek." "Drankin N Smokin" is a track from their first joint album, Pluto x Baby Pluto.
  • The song is centered on the two artists' love lives. Future talks about how he likes to drink and smoke when getting intimate with women, while Lil Uzi Vert details some girls he's been with.
  • The album title references both artists' nicknames. Future has always been infatuated with space, and he titled his 2012 debut album Pluto after the dwarf planet. Lil Uzi Vert has a similar spaced-out vibe; he introduced his "Baby Pluto" alter ego on the 2020 Eternal Atake track of that title.
  • In the week after Future and Lil Uzi Vert dropped Pluto x Baby Pluto, 10 songs from the album debuted on the Hot 100 chart. "Drankin N Smokin" was the highest entry, arriving at #31.
  • The DJ ESCO and Sam Lecca-directed video shows Future and Lil Uzi Vert attending a huge mansion party thrown by comedian Lil Duval.
