Benz Friendz (Whatchutola)

  • This song about gold-digging females finds Future linking up with André 3000. The two Atlanta rappers take turns on the mic pontificating on the question; Would my girl still be around if I wasn't rich? The OutKast rapper declares on the hook that he is not interested in women that want to be with him only because he can afford a Mercedes-Benz.
  • This was André 3000's first appearance on a song since guesting on Capital City's "Farrah Fawcett Hair" in June 2013.
  • This may have been their first collaboration, but Future and André 3000 have known each other for a long time. Future's cousin, Rico Wade, is a part of the Organized Noize production outfit, which produced a large amount of material for OutKast including all of their 1994 debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
