Future and Kanye West’s video for ‘I Won’ is now playing
There are “trophy wives,” and then there the prizes on offer in Future and Kanye West’s new video.
In the new clip for “I Won,” Future extrapolates on that old women-as-prizes-for-music-success canard. While decked out in a Tom Wolfe-worthy white suit ensemble, he promises a potential amour, “Ever since I been with you, I feel like I won me a trophy.”
Well, it seems like Future means that as a genuine compliment. And heck, if you play with OutKast at its Coachella reunion, you probably deserve a medal of some sort.

Kanye West also shows up for a guest verse, promising to “Take you to the south France / so you can run around without them pants,” and declaring the hotness of the entire extended Kardashian clan.
The single is the first off the Atlanta singer/rapper/pitch-shifting warbler’s much-anticipated new album “Honest,” out April 22. Watch it, but be warned, it contains ribald lover-man lyrics.
