Move That Dope

Album: Honest (2014)
Charted: 46
  • Future enlisted Pusha T, Pharrell and Casino to drop some bars on this dealer's anthem. The radio edit of this coke slinging ode is titled "Move That Doh" with Casino's verse cut.
  • The Benny Boom-directed video features a high-speed police chase, models randomly posing but no actual drugs being pushed. The clip not only features Future, Pharrell Williams and Pusha T, but also includes cameos from Tyler, the Creator, ScHoolboy Q and Wiz Khalifa.
  • A retro-styled free Internet video game was created by a firm called The Uprising Creative to support the song. It challenges players to move their own dope while evading the police.
  • Future recalled Pharrell's reluctance to collaborate on the song during an interview with Billboard magazine. "It was a difficult situation for him," said the Atlanta rapper. "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."

    "[Pharrell] 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,'" Future continued. "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."
