Future’s Bleeping ‘How It Was’ Fits ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Just Fine

Future, 'Grand Theft Auto V,' "How It Was"

Future is busy building momentum for his sophomore album Honest with the single “Honest,” the loose track “Substitute Everything,” and a soon-to-drop video for “Sh!t.” But the most potent track — considering the $800 million in first day sales and all — could just be “How It Was,” a track for the Grand Theft Auto V radio station Radio Los Santos. The one-off sounds classically Future but is decidedly more celebratory than the Atlanta crooner’s recent tracks, which push his maudlin side to the forefront. “How It Was” rolls from a particularly anthemic chorus into verses about pushing drugs, dodging cop cars, and casing houses — acutely perfect for a video game about doing those exact same things, as it would turn out.
