Getting a feature from one of the best rappers in the game can be expensive. Ask Megan Thee Stallion. The Lone Star State rapper revealed she paid Future $250,000 for a “Pressurelicious” verse.
In a video interview with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk of Power 106 Los Angeles, which premiered on YouTube on Friday August 12, Megan Thee Stallion explained how she managed to get Future to appear on her latest single, ” Pressurelicious.” The Hot Girl trainer wanted the Atlanta rapper-producer on the song and needed to make sure he jumped on the track while they were both working out in Miami.
“So how did I go about it, okay, someone priced the Future feature,” she explained at 3:48 in the video below. “I was just asking what his retail price was…and they were like 250. He wants 250,000.”
“I was like, ‘Okay, I bet.’ Someone will take 250,000 out of the bank…and deposit it in Future and tell him I need the verse before he leaves [Miami].”
Luckily, with the help of her manager, Megan was able to deliver $250,000…in liquid!—to Future in a backpack before leaving Miami.
And it was worth it. According to Traumazine The artist, Future gave Megan several verses on the song, which she described as “The Future Experience”, and she cut some of them out and used them on the track. The 27-year-old rhyme also added that she had to redo her initial rhymes to make everything sound consistent with Future Hendrix’s lyrics on the final product.
Tribute to Future for giving Megan Thee Stallion her money.
