Iconic duos are remembered for different reasons. Frequent collaborators Future and Drake have a track record of hit-making. The platinum rap stars have been complimenting each other’s musical swag since they first paired up for 2011’s “Tony Montana,” a track found on the Atlanta’s trapper’s debut album Pluto.

 

Together, the chart-toppers delivered the hard-to-forget mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive (2015). Featuring the Top 10 hit “Jumpman”, the 12-track project satisfied fans and critics, and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

 

Hendrix and Drizzy have also made history together. Their 2020 release, “Life Is Good” was recently certified diamond, after spending eight weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

One of their more recent collabs, the Young Thug-assisted “Way 2 Sexy,” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 following the release of Drake’s latest blockbuster album, Certified Lover Boy.

 

They’ve also showcased their chemistry in must-see music videos, as well on the road. Future and Drake have linked up for a couple of super successful tours, including 2013’s Would You Like A Tour? and 2016’s Summer Sixteen Tour.

 

Future and Drake have become two of the most impactful hip-hop artists of all-time. And just the thought of them linking up for another collaboration is enough to get fans riled up. As they have ascended to rap royalty over the course of the last decade or so, they’ve been reminding us why their collaborations are almost always worth the hype.

 

With a collaborative catalogue that is full of timeless music and classics moments, it’s difficult to imagine Future and Drake not being one of hip-hop’s favorite tag teams. If you won’t take our word for it, check out their lengthy list of certified bangers below.
