In part 2 of Mass Appeal’s conversation with Future and his cousin Rico Wade of Organized Noize, Meathead the Connect speaks on how he capitalized on the success of “Racks” by releasing his early mixtapes and then used the same strategy in 2014-2015 to come back from the lukewarm response to the Honest album.

If you read Mass Appeal’s cover story on Future for their most recent issue, you know that a major theme of the article is Future’s pre-fame grind in the Atlanta underground and his connection to the city’s first family of music, The Dungeon Family. In this clip shot at a recent art exhibit for Organized Noize, he and his cousin Rico Wade of the legendary production team discuss his early days hanging out in the studio learning the game and how that influenced his later success. One big takeaway here is that Future laid a verse for an Andre 3000 song that never came out, so yeah, that exists.
