Megan Thee Stallion Says Her Team Didn’t Want to Pay Future $250K For a Verse

Megan Thee Stallion revealed that Future‘s feature on her new song “Pressurelicious” almost didn’t happen, but she was insistent about getting the rapper on the track no matter the cost.

The Hot Girl stopped by Power 106 Los Angeles last Friday to promote her new album Traumazine. During the conversation on the radio show, she mentioned that she faced some pushback from her team after deciding she wanted to pay Future’s $250,000 appearance fee for a verse on the single. She told hosts Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk, “I had the beat for ‘Pressurelicious,’ right? I recorded the song, and I recorded it one way. And I’m like, ‘You know what? This would really sound hard if Future was on it.”

Meg continued, “Being a woman in the industry, reaching out to a man trying to get a feature is always going to be a task. You never know what to expect. How I went about it was, ‘OK, somebody figure out what’s Future’s feature price. Let’s just ask him.’” Upon learning that his price was $250,000 and realizing that they both happened to be in Miami at the same time, the rapper said she was more than ready to write that check to get Future in the booth as soon as possible. “I was like, ‘OK, bet. Somebody go pull $250,000 out the bank, go drop it off to Future and tell him I need the verse before he leaves,’” she said. But her manager couldn’t wrap his head around the expense, replying, “‘Megan, how you want us to pull $250,000 out of the bank?’” But she insisted, “‘We need to get Future $250,000 before he leaves Miami ‘cause I gotta get this verse.’ Anyways, blah blah blah, we got the $250,000, and I had my manager go drop it off to him in a backpack to get me my verse back.”

And, in the end, the rapper says that quarter-million-dollar price tag was well worth it as what she got back was “the whole Future experience, he gave me the whole song” explaining that he rapped over the entire seven-minute beat she’d provided him with that would eventually become “Pressurelicious.” Meg said, “Because he gave me the whole song, I had to go into the studio and put it together. So then when I got his verses, I was like, ‘I gotta write some new verses, ‘cause I gotta make this make sense.’” And even after she finalized the track, there were still a whole lot of leftover verses from Future’s initial recording. “I could probably go and make three Future songs,” she joked. “I love Future. I’ll pack me up a little something for later just in case.”
