All through 2022, Polo G proved himself with a series of solo singles and collaborative efforts. He began the year with an appearance on PGF Nuk's "Waddup." Following that was his own "Distraction" and later, "Bag Talk." Other efforts to come from the Chicago rapper include "My All" and "G Nikes" with Nardo Wick.

The first weeks of 2023 found the lyricist keeping a low profile. Mid-way through February, though, he's ready to make his mark. On Friday (February 17), the 24-year-old finally unleashed his first-ever joint single with Future, "No Time Wasted." As REVOLT notes, the impressive effort is likely to appear on Polo's upcoming LP with Southside.

The younger artist carries on the chorus, singing, "Uh, I know you waitin' / Gettin' fed up, you runnin' out of patience / Just keep your head up, I told you we would make it / Can't give my meds up, I see too many faces." Like many of his other releases, Polo's new single finds him reflecting on life in the streets while inspiring listeners with uplifting bars.

For his part, Future chiefly flaunts the beautiful women in his life and the luxuries he's able to afford. "Run in a Porsche with some horses like I'm racin' / Bitch so bad look photoshopped when she naked," the Atlanta native rhymes.

At this time, it remains unclear when Polo G and Southside's joint LP will drop. However, we do know that the duo is reportedly currently putting the finishing touches on the highly anticipated release. It will follow the former's third studio release, Hall of Fame, which earned him a No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

Quotable Lyrics:

Run in a Porsche with some horses like I'm racin'
Bitch so bad look photoshopped when she naked
Made it out the jungle where they scorchin' and blazin'
My dog get money and I get money, it's contagious
