Unless it’s a certified posse cut, four is usually a crowd when it comes to rap songs (Sorry, DJ Khaled). “Move That Dope,” the latest song from Future‘s upcoming album, Honest, is a rare exception. Teaming up with Pusha-T, Pharrell and Casino, Future has created a potent mixture of frenetic energy and controlled delivery that progresses seamlessly and relentlessly without the slightest bump or lapse. The subtle sample of “Push It” works perfectly, encouraging the listener to tarry even though the song clocks in at almost 6 minutes. Pharrell also contributes some background vocals that keep up the energy. Whoever mixed this deserves some recognition.
Mike Will is behind the instrumental, possibly the most critical dimension of the song. The bass pulsates like the heart of Galactus and that croaking synth sounds like some distorted sample from an old Budweiser commercial. It’s easy to call this trap music because of the song’s content and artists, but this is actually something far more perplexing. The song is slightly #based, especially the chorus, plus Pharrell sounds like T.I. and Casino sounds like 2 Chainz and Shawty Lo. There’s no name for this. Future and Mike Will have done it again.
