The Atlanta-set remake of “Superfly” will not only include rap royalty such as Big Boi , but a soundtrack spotlighting Future.

The trap master shared a new trailer for the film, due this summer, in a tweet on Thursday , and acknowledged that the film would include new Future music.

Future is also curating the soundtrack, much like Kendrick Lamar did with “Black Panther,” as well as co-producing the Director X-steered film.

The original "Superfly," released in 1972, was complemented by Curtis Mayfield's famed soundtrack, which produced the hit title track and "Freddie's Dead."

In the trailer for the new "Superfly," Future is heard repeating the line, “you can walk on minks, baby,” over a hypnotic beat. Take a listen below.
