In an Vibe interview Pusha T revealed the process how the work beteen Future and him went down:
VIBE: Let’s talk about […] “Pain” […] with Future. Was it an “email me your verse” type of thing?
Pusha T: Nah, we cooked that up together, man. The beat was created early that morning, and he was there by 9pm that evening to lay the hook.
He further elaborated about his choice:
I wanted to experiment in using Future for the hook ‘cause I felt everyone else is thinking to work with him in a club capacity. People needed a record that’s a little darker.
