Future – “Peacoat” Video

In the past six or so months, Future has released three mixtapes made with three different producers. Beast Mode, the one Future made with Zaytoven, is probably the best of the three, and "Peacoat" is a highlight of that one. It's also the one where Future brags about watersports, if you're into hearing about that. More »

Vince Staples – “Señorita”

One of last year's best rap albums wasn't an album at all; it was Hell Can Wait, an EP from the Long Beach rapper Vince Staples that lasted seven songs and 24 minutes. In that brief window of time, Staples perfected an icy, minimal, intense, politically charged, emotionally seething form of rap -- something a… More »

The unrelenting slew of Future videos continues. Fresh off the news that he will tour with Drake this spring, the Atlanta rapper dropped the video for "Where I Came From," a track off his Beast Mode mixtape.

Future – “March Madness” Video

In case you had any doubts that Future might stop releasing mixtapes and music videos at the Gucci Mane-like rate he's been on lately, have no fear! He's back again with a video for "March Madness," one of the songs off his new mixtape 56 Nights. Notable moments in this video: he wears a black… More »

Future – “Fuck Up Some Commas” Video

Future never sleeps. He released his third mixtape in six months, 56 Nights, last week, and has been on a tear releasing videos for songs from both Monster and Beast Mode. For the "Fuck Up Some Commas" video (Free Bandz contributed to Urban Dictionary if you need the etymology of the phrase) he heads out… More »

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 contribute… 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 mostly… 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," a track… 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 Sremmurd'… 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. As FADER found out, Esco ended up spending 56 days in a Dubai prison after he was arrested for marijuana possession when they arrived at the… More »

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 the… 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 big crowd… 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, when we're maybe… 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 ThaMore »

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 wings. More »
