Download Future & DJ Esco 56 Nights Mixtape

DJ Esco, Future's longtime tour DJ, spent 56 days jailed in Dubai last year. That's not the kind of experience you get over quickly, so it follows that the incident serves as the inspiration for Future and Esco's new mixtape. 56 Nights is almost entirely produced by Southside, though his 808 Mafia associate Tarentino… More »

The Week In Rap: The Great Drake/Kendrick Lamar Rivalry

This year, the best story in rap -- and the best story in music, and maybe the best story in popular culture in general -- is the three-way dance that Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West have been dancing. They've all been throwing huge shadows over rap for years, and they're all entangled with one… More »

Future – “Just Like Bruddas” Video

Future continues to release a string of videos for his #MonsterMonday series, but it seems like he finally caught up with everyone else and realized that Beast Mode is much better than Monster. To that end, the visual he dropped today are for the Beast Mode cut "Just Like Bruddas." And while the video… More »

Future – “Gangland” Video

Atlanta autotune soothsayer Future is currently promoting two back-to-back mixtapes, the aggressive, hedonistic Monster and the Zaytoven-produced Beast Mode. One of them is possibly a tribute to Marshawn Lynch and earned our Mixtape Of The Week distinction. One of them did not. Sadly for us, Future has released a new video for "Gangland,"… More »

Mike Will Made-It – “Drinks On Us (Remix Feat. The Weeknd)”

The Weeknd has added his own verse to Mike WiLL Made It's "Drinks On Us," a track which appeared on his Ransom mixtape that came out late last year. The beat largely stays untouched, mainly because the original took a hazy page from the Weeknd's playbook to begin with. The track also features Rae… More »

Future’s DJ Esco Spent 56 Days In A Dubai Prison

Last year, Future performed at the fancy 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the tail-end of his European tour, and brought along his affiliate DJ Esco in his posse.

Travi$ Scott – “Nothing But Net” (Feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Young Thug) & “High Fashion” (Feat. Future)

The young Houston rapper and producer Travi$ Scott is as much a curator as anything else, and his 2014 mixtape Days Before Rodeo showed that he knows what he's doing on that score. Stereogum readers seemed remarkably pissed that I didn't name it Mixtape Of The Week or put it on my list of… More »

Future – “My Savages” Video

Future just released a very good new mixtape called Beast Mode, but he's still making videos for songs from Monster, the not-as-good tape he released back in October. The latest is the Cricket-directed video for "My Savages," a ride-for-my-friends song with some surprisingly florid pianos. In the clip, Future spends quality time with… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Future & Zaytoven Beast Mode

Quick programming note: Lil Wayne's Sorry 4 The Wait 2 came out two days ago, and I haven't even had time to process it yet because I've been trapped in Björkworld. (That's also why this column is a day late this week.) I'll consider Sorry 4 The Wait for next week's edition, whe… More »

Download Future & Zaytoven Beast Mode Mixtape

Atlanta sing-rap gurgler Future released his last mixtape -- Monster, which paired him with the up-and-coming producer Metro Boomin, just a few months ago. He's already followed it up.

Future – “Just Like Bruddas” & Ciara – “I Bet”

A year ago, Future and Ciara were the two halves of one of rap and R&B's greatest power couples. But now, their ugly public breakup has reached the point where they're both writing songs about it. Future's Zaytoven-produced "Just Like Bruddas" is a tinkly piano ballad with lyrics about friendship and success. Or I thinkMore »

Lil Wayne – “Sh!t Freestyle”

One of the best things Lil Wayne has done in the past few years was his 2011 mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait, on which Wayne brought back his old mixtape technique, going in hard over other people's tracks and doing his best to make his versions the definitive ones. Now that Wayne's new album… More »

Future – “Radical” Video

"Radical" is the latest track from Future's Monster mixtape to get a video treatment. On the song, Future mumbles ominously against Metro Boomin's signature bass gurgle. The video appears to have been filmed at Atlanta's Magic City strip club, which -- according to our Future feature last year -- serves fantastic lemon pepper hot… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2014

In 2014, rap's biggest names more or less sat the year out. Kanye West never got around to releasing that populist masterwork he's been promising. Drake threw a bunch of great songs up on Soundcloud rather than compiling those songs into an LP. Jay Z went on tour with his wife but gave us no… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Chimes (Remix)” (Feat. Future, Pusha T, French Montana, & Travi$ Scott)

Hudson Mohawke came up as a bass music producer and as half of the great duo TNGHT, but he's now firmly in the rap universe after having joined Kanye West's production stable in time for Yeezus. Now, a whole host of rap monsters has jumped on his dark, pounding solo track "Chimes," turning it… More »

Future – “Never Satisfied” (Feat. Drake)

Future's Honest from earlier this year contained a tantalizing tease of a track called "Never Satisfied" featuring Drake, but it faded out at the two-minute mark right as it was about to get good. Now, producer Mike WiLL Made-It has shared the full version of the song, which has another hook and verse from Drake… More »
