Status Ain’t Hood: Beatking, Sauce Twinz, And Houston Rap’s Next Wave

For decades, Houston has been its own rap planet. There are Houston rappers who have legend status outside their city, like Scarface or UGK, the latter of whom actually come from the not-that-nearby town of Port Arthur. But Houston also has local legends with barely any profile in the rest of the world. Z-Ro and… More »

Travi$ Scott – “3500” (Feat. Future & 2 Chainz)

Up until the riot police showed up, one of the bigger stories coming out of Hot 97’s Summer Jam last night was the way the energetic young Houston rapper Travi$ Scott bullied a photographer off the stage during his set at the outdoor festival-stage preshow. Scott told the unfortunate shutterbug, “Hey, get your fucking nerdy… More »

The 8 Best Performances Of Governors Ball 2015 Friday

For being the biggest city in America, it took a hell of a long time for New York to lock down a festival. Sure, we have CMJ and Northside and venues booked tight throughout the year, but recreating the traditional “field day out” experience that’s become the norm across the rest of the country i… More »

Future and DJ Esco dropped their 56 Nights mixtape back in March, and since then, the rapper has been opening for Drake on his If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late tour.

Future – “Fuck Up Some Commas (Remix)” (Feat. Rick Ross & Big Sean)

Fuck Up Some Commas” is the rather obvious club-banger off Future’s Monster mixtape, and though I’m still reeling over how incredible this all-Spanish version is, Rick Ross and Big Sean jumped on a remix of the English version today. You’ve gotta hand it to Future, “fuck up some commas” is the coolest euphemism for spending… More »

Status Ain’t Hood: Will Rich Homie Quan Ever Stop Going In?

Rich Homie Quan could’ve easily been a one-and-done, a craggy-voiced fake Future who scored one transcendent hit out of nowhere and then disappeared right back into the Atlanta underground. And if he’d gone away after “Type Of Way,” that still would’ve been a good run. That’s an incredible song, a confident melodic slink that float… More »

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 »

Future – “Trap Niggas” Video

Future debuted the video for his song “Trap Niggas” today, exactly a week after he released one for “Where I Come From.” “Trap Niggas” is on Future & DJ Esco’s most recent mixtape 56 Nights, and the accompanying video co-stars the ATL-based rappers Key! and ManManSavage. The executive producer of the short film, Propane, explained… 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 »
