Future and Metro Boomin have delivered the announcement fans have been waiting to hear for over a year, recruiting Prodigy for a posthumous assist.

On Friday (March 8), the two frequent collaborators jointly posted a cryptic trailer, soundtracked by an excerpt from an interview given by the late Mobb Deep rapper just ahead of his 2008 incarceration on charges of criminal possession of a firearm.

Got a lot of fuckin’ garbage ass rappers out here running around,” P is heard sayin in the World Star Hip Hop clip. “Like, these n-ggas ain’t supposed to b rapping, son. This game was meant for a select number of fews, a select few. And that’s what it is today, man. I don’t give a fuck, ain’t nothing changed. Always remember that. You see we still here doing it. Ain’t nothin’ changed. Fuck all these n-ggas man.”

As Prodigy speaks, a white Bentley truck is seen driving down a deserted highway before meeting up with an identical SUV. Pluto and Metro each hop out of one of the vehicles, dressed in matching suits, before the title We Don’t Trust You appears on screen with two dates underneath it – March 22 and April 12.

As the clip ends, Future is heard rapping a hook that echoes the title.

According to a press release sent to HipHopDX, the two release dates don’t indicate a single and an album, but two albums, with We Don’t Trust You being slated to arrive first. The projects also celebrate over ten years of collaborations between the two Atlanta-based creatives, an ongoing partnership which culminated in the 2x platinum single “Superhero (Heroes & Villains)” from Metro Boomin’s 2022 album Heroes & Villains.

While the latest update still doesn’t offer much information about the upcoming collaboration, it makes good on a promise Metro Boomin and Future have been making since late 2022.

Metro first announced a joint effort with King Pluto in December of that year, and gave an update the following June, tweeting in response to a fan that the project was “next up” now that the Spider-Verse soundtrack had wrapped.

In the months since, each artist has repeatedly confirmed that a joint project was still on the way, without offering many concrete details.

On September 5, the 29-year-old beatmaker gave fans an update on Instagram, posting a photograph with an eagle on his left wrist that was captioned: “Me and @future album on the way drop some [three eagle emojis] if you ready #freebandz.”

Weeks later, Metro returned to Instagram with a new photo series of himself with the “Mask Off” rapper in the studio.

Each photo appeared to be more intense than the last, and the multi-platinum hitmaker promised that what they were working on will be worthy of all the awards.

AOTY [album of the year] loading [three battery emojis],” he wrote in the caption.

While Future again confirmed that the album was “on the way” in late December, it wasn’t until January that fans got a first sample of what to expect on the project, they raised the stakes teasing a Travis Scott collab on the way.

Young Metro fired up a short snippet of the ethereal track featuring Pluto’s woozy vocals for fans to chew on via Twitter on January 3.

The unreleased song has been dubbed either “Cinderella” — which Metro alludes to — or “Family Forever,” though neither artist has confirmed the track’s title.

Hot chocolate cinderella,” Metro captioned the clip of him dancing to the track alongside Future.

The upcoming collab appeared to be a hit with fans as they flooded Metro’s replies clamoring for the track to arrive.
