“Move That Dope,” the burping, twitching Future/Pusha T/Pharrell/Casino posse cut from Future’s new album Honest, is easily my favorite single of the year, in any genre. And last night, Future and Pusha T appeared on The Tonight Show to perform a scaled-down version of the track with the Roots. (If you’re Jimmy Fallon, the song is called “Move That Dough.”) Future is a surprisingly controlled, composed live rapper, and Pusha T is one of rap’s great onstage livewires. The Roots, meanwhile, did a chaotic backing-track-plus-drum-clatter take on Mike Will Made-It’s incredible Neptunes-esque beat. Watch the performance below.
Honest is out now on Epic. Everybody please buy a copy so that motherfucking Iggy Azalea doesn’t outsell it.
