This is the video for “Move That Dope”. Original thoughts quoted below :
“Future connects with Pusha T, Pharrell, and Casino for “Move That Dope”, produced by Mike Will. The moment the cover art came out for this track you know you were anticipating something wild. And by calming Future down a bit, invoking Pusha’s Ric Flare persona, having Pharrell channel early 2000s Dirty South, and throw the (usually) strip club-ready Casino at the end, you wind up with a wildly engaging track. Not to mention the gliding ferociousness that Mike Will groans.
Mike Will splashed the rap game with some lurking witchouse for this instrumental. A deep-sea bass wash that occasionally flares up into a choked//static drum sets the groundwork for a slow, but caustic soundscape. Daggering keys and kick drum//snare sneers the aggressive nonchalance into its anxiously-balanced pace. By combing witched-out synth keys through these drum breaks, Mike Will illicits the unconcerned character of his instrumental’s darkness. And for this breathless instrumental, all the lyricists had to adapt.
With a catchily-repetitive hook by Future (Back To The Future era), he, Pusha, Pharrell, and Casino order the vocals. Future tames his ad-libs, relaxes his Karate-Chop flow, and yells only sparingly. He lets up for Pusha to focus on pies, nose references, and some choice words regarding Migos' [
late] Versace obsession. VA comes out again with Pharrell surprising everyone by gearing from theSkateboard P era into a flow T.I. would’ve been proud of. I’m surprised, though, that Casino closes this track out, forcing a strained yell through his vocals. All four restrain themselves in unique ways to match the quiet confidence embedded in the instrumental.
