Drake lends a scorching verse to the Future jam ‘Sh*t’ today, signing, sealing and delivering it to the world as the pair embark on the ‘Would You Like a Tour?’

Featuring lyrics that a certain Kendrick Lamar may take offence to, the remix drops as his latest LP ‘Nothing Was The Same‘ re-enters the Billboard 200′s Top Twenty!
