Future talks with Billboard about his 45-date tour promoting his 'Honest' album, and Pharrell's reluctance to collaborate on the album's first single 'Move That Dope'.
On Pharrell's reluctance to doing 'Move That Dope' Future said "It was a difficult situation for him," Future recalls. "He was going to the Oscars, and whatever he was in was a different music space, and to get him to do a verse on a song with that subject matter was difficult.
[Pharrell] was like, 'Man, I don't know if I should do this, 'cause I don't want, like, a big backlash on me. I love this song, but I don't want a backlash.' I was like, 'Man, no, it's a positive message. The verse is telling people to let everything go. You have a message that's positive throughout your verse. I think people need to hear that, 'cause your voice is such a big voice in hip-hop.' And he was down with it in the end."
Talking about spending time with fans on tour the rapper went on "I want to engage the fans, so there's going to be a lot of breakdowns of me explaining where I was at when I was making the music. It's gonna be more like a listening session 'cause I'm able to give people details, song by song, to let them know the space I was in and where I was at recording it and what made me record those songs and what made me want to call this tour Honest.
