Signature Beat: Future "Honest" (2013)

Future made his name working with producers like Mike Will Made It on tracks like "Turn on the Lights," but for this year's F.B.G.: The Movie, Future took a chance on up-and-coming St. Louis born producer Metro Boomin (who'd previously gotten work with Gucci Mane and Southside and TM88's 808 Mafia collective). The pair came out with "Karate Chop," the trap banger with the oft-pilfered staccato flow (and the remix with the Lil Wayne Emmett Till lyric controversy). The duo linked up again for "Honest," the lead single off Future's new album with the same name, which traded the menace of "Karate Chop" for quiet reflection. Metro Boomin has also appeared on releases by Wiz Khalifa, Ludacris, and Ace Hood.
