Complete with an impassioned delivery of early contender for best line of 2019 "Ten chains on, Lucky Charms, I'm the shit," Future brought lead single "Crushed Up" to Stephen Colbert's New York headquarters. Fittingly, the performance also featured faux snow and some frenetic camera work. Catch the full thing up top.

Speaking of that Lucky Charms line, that’s one of many WIZRD lyrics Future recently gave some official Genius annotations. "Most chains I ever put on was probably like 15, 20 chains," he explained. "But you know, like, they got diamond ropes, you know like the tennis chains, so I probably had like, eight tennis chains on and then just a few Cubans on and some more chains. So about ten, about 15 chains at the most."

WIZRD's release also resulted in a 22-minute For the Record sit-down with Genius' own Rob Markman. "What drives me is living every word and being that same way and just being this person and being that rockstar," Future, speaking on his initial hesitance to tell fans he had decided to stop drinking lean, said. "It's hard because it's just, like, damn. I don't wanna stop and then the fans stop loving me."
