Future Turned Down Lil Wayne for “Tony Montana” Track [VIDEO]

Future’s barely released his first official single, “Tony Montana,” and the Atlanta rapper is already a hot commodity among hip-hop royalty.

According to Future, not only was Drake vying for a guest spot on the hot track, but his Young Money labelhead Lil Wayne wanted to jump on it, too.

“He told me how much of a fan he was of mine and he was like, ‘Wayne wants to get on it, too,’” recalls Future, who declined the offer. “I was like, ‘Wayne not gonna get on it.’ Too many big artists on the song already… That’s why I didn’t want him and Wayne on the song.”

As to how the collabo came about initially, Future says Drake called him in the studio “at like three in the morning… At first he called like two or three people.. I was like, ‘I don’t want to go through them ’cause they wanted me to go through them, like a middle man. I was like, ‘I need to hear Drake myself.”‘

Eventually, he got on the horn with Drake directly and, although Drake didn’t appear in the music video for “Tony Montana” a gesture which offended Future, according to reports the collaboration happened on wax.

“It worked out,” Future says. “We still going through it but it’s climbing the chart, so, I salute Drake on everything…”

Future is scheduled to perform at New York’s Webster Hall this coming Thursday (November 10).—Mariel Concepcion (@mceezy)
