November 2011 — Future calls Drake's non-appearance in the "Tony Montana" video a "slap in my face"
In an interview with The Source, Future thanked Drake for remixing "Tony Montana," but expressed disappointment that Drake hadn't participated in the song's official video, which was filmed in the Dominican Republic. "I salute [Drake] for even just getting on the record, that shows a lot about his character...and just to shed more light on the record," Future said. Then: "So many people from Atlanta wanted to get on this record, and for me, it's basically a slap in my face because so many people from Atlanta say 'You should've did it with someone who was going to be in the video, who wanted to be a part of the video."
August 2013 — Future says he inspired Drake's hit "Started From The Bottom"
"I was in the studio when [Drake] was making the record, I had the record 'Chosen One'...I always tell my engineer 'start it from the bottom,'" Future told the LA Leakers. "[Drake] thought I was talking about a song...So when I played 'Chosen One' he was waiting for me to say 'started from the bottom'... He bought me a bottle of Louis XIII that I've never opened up because of this story. I'm like man, I don't want a bottle, I need publishing...Drake, that's the homie, and he was like "Start it from the bottom" it stayed on my mind...I just started saying "Started from the bottom now we here."
"Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn't grab you. They're not possessive; they don't make you feel the way I do." - Future— e. (@3rika) October 4, 2013
