BIG30 takes the baton and warns listeners to keep their head on a swivel for haters watching their every move.
“Now, how the fuck you get some fame? I been an opp (Opp)/Them folks ain’t rockin’ with ya’, they watching ’til you get dropped,” he raps.
In a March interview with Apple Music, Moneybagg Yo detailed how Future almost tried to hide “Hard for the Next” from him and then spoke highly of the Atlanta staple, saying he’s in his Top 5 of all-time.
“Future like my favorite, one of my favorites for sure,” Moneybagg proclaimed. “Like, he in my Top 5. He most definitely influential on me.”
