At this point, Future and Drake are the rap games equivalence of Basketball’s LeBron and Wade. They’re literally peanut butter and jelly. For two years (2015-2016), it felt like you could not see one without seeing the other. Back in 2016 before Drake dropped the tracklist for his album “Views”, it was almost a given to know Future would be featured. With their growing musical relationship, came growing musical chemistry. That chemistry is at a full display on Future’s new song, “Life Is Good”.

For weeks there’s been talk about Future and Drake potentially releasing “What A Time To Be Alive 2”. Also, over the last week, we’ve seen the two filming a then-unknown video. With that information, I was surprised to see that it was just for a Future song featuring Drake (“Life is Good”). But regardless, I was still excited to see what they came up with. Upon first listen, I didn’t find anything special about the song. Drakes lyrics and flow weren’t anything to call home about. The beat switch into Futures verse didn’t necessarily help. I thought it was an early 2020 fumble by Future and Drake until I listened again…

Within my second listen, I finally got a feel for both beats and got into their flow and verses. The song isn’t anything groundbreaking or crazy, but it holds up for Future and Drake samples. I won’t lie- I’ll be disappointed if this offering is just a song for Futures album and we don’t get the sequel to WATTBA, that we all deserve.
