“‘Move That Dope’ almost didn’t make the album,” says Future. “I put down the hook and left it. Mike called me over and over and over.” WiLL claims those calls were to urge Future to revisit the studio cut and to see if a single could come out of it. The producer ended up taking a throwaway verse Future had left in a session and putting it on top of the “Move That Dope” beat alongside the hook. “Pharrell heard it and we both thought it sounded like some old Neptunes shit, like Clipse’s ‘Grindin’,” says WiLL. Then Pharrell asked if he could record on the track. “I couldn’t say no to Skateboard P!” he continues. “If Skateboard P asks you if he can put down a verse for you, you say yes.”
