Started From The Bottom, now we’re here. There has been no shortage of this phrase being used this year. The song released in February, but is still getting heavy rotation. Future recently sat down with the LA Leakers and spoke on how he actually gave Drake the inspiration to make this anthem.
According to Future he was in the studio with Drake and said the phrase “Start it from the bottom” to his engineer. “Drake came by the studio, and I always tell my engineer, ‘Start it from the bottom’. When I said, ‘Start it from the bottom,’ he thought I was talking about a song”, says Future. Later on after actually making “Started From The Bottom” a real song, Future says Drake paid him back. “He bought me a bottle of Louis XIII that I never opened up. I was like, ‘Man, I don’t need a bottle, I need publishing.” Lol, well played Future. It’s crazy how a whole song can stem from something like that. Watch the video interview with Future below.
