Release: Dirty Sprite (2011)
Producer(s): MiKE WiLL Made It

As his sound has moved closer to the mainstream, Future has left the salutes to codeine behind. But it was unquestionably an influence on his sound, down to his groggily psychedelic vocals. Replete with shoutouts to Houston icons Pimp C, Big Hawk, and DJ Screw, the song rides an insistent tapped two-note piano to recreate the dissociation of the syrup high, where even a loved one's concern about negative effects becomes a part of the wallpaper. —David Drake
