With hits penned for Ciara and Rihanna, it’s become increasingly apparent that Future’s musical tastes span far wider than his own music would suggest.
Only right then, that he calls on Andre 3000 to showcase his range on a ‘space-age funk’ new number named ‘Benz B*tch.’
Details on the duet below…
Built to service his forthcoming LP ‘Honest’, ‘Benz’ comes courtesy of producer Rico Wade, who said of the jam:
“It’s yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia’s dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots.”
On ‘Honest‘, ‘Stereogum’ adds exclusively:
“He’s been having these sessions almost every night, trying out new beats, toying with new ideas, tweaking his delivery until it’s just right.
It’s been a long process; the album was already well underway in late 2012, back when it was supposed to be called Future Hendrix (unfortunately, his camp thought better of that after considering Jimi’s lawsuit-happy estate) and the guest list was to include Kanye, Drake, Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, and Jeremih.
It’s unclear about how much the record has changed as Future’s sound has evolved these past 12 months. These days he’s pretty tight-lipped about what Honest will sound like, who’ll be on it, and when it will be unveiled.
It was already supposed to be out by now, on 11/26/13, but after pushing the release back once already, he’s reluctant to commit to a new date until it’s absolutely certain.
“I’m almost finished with it, but this time around I feel like just making sure I do everything possible on my end that I can do. I’m down to the final days of recording.
I haven’t came up with a date, but I’m pretty sure. In my head I have a date, but I’m not going to put it out until I’m 100 percent sure because I don’t want to change it once I put it out.”
