The casual flexing all over this EVOL cut can't overshadow the grim sonics or the hook about how versed this kid is in shootings. Also features more not-fun drug use with lines like, "Dumping down the pills, I feel my head explodin’ / Roll a pound of dope, I gotta keep on smokin'."—Zach Dionne
There's nothing more menacing than Future's slurred recall of his trap life. On WATTBA's "Live From the Gutter," he paints a gritty drug-filled description over a somber piano beat:
"Wake up in the house I look up, I see bales everywhere / I see girls everywhere, I see scales everywhere / I see heron everywhere, I get mail everywhere / Walked inside the booth and came out in a Learjet / A fiend for that lean I ain't started drinking beer yet"
The Tarantino beat paired with Future's dead-eyed substance-snarfing and semi-wokeness makes for one of the most simultaneously hype and dark songs in recent memory. Consider:
"Shoot a n---a like a film in a movie / N---a gon' let 'em have it We ballin' like the March Madness / All these cops shootin' n---as, tragic / I'm the one that's livin' lavish / Like I'm playin' for the Mavericks / I didn't wanna fuck the bitch, the molly made me fuck her even though she average"
