On Making "Move That Dope" With Future
Mike WiLL Made It: “Move That Dope” was not a record that he just went in, heard that beat and recorded the song. It was a record where I had him do a verse for another record that I had for somebody, and he came up with the verse that was on "Dope." Right after he did that feature I let him hear the beat for “Move That Dope” and he came up with the hook. The hook was crazy. One of my producers who worked on the beat, P, he did another hook on that beat, too. That’s why you hear the, “Popping bottles, don’t it make you feel good.” And I had taken that as ad libs on the hook that Future already did. Then I was listening to Future’s verse that he did as a feature and I thought, “This verse may sound dope on this beat with this hook.” I had grabbed that verse and snapped that hook, just on some producer shit, and I let Future hear it. He was like, “This song can be big, this song is crazy,” and we had that, like, last summer.
