This morning, Future dropped a brand new video for the track “Poppin Tags!’ The song originally debuted back in November during an episode of OVO Sound Radio. According to Complex, in the video “Future puts his lavish lifestyle on full display. There’s cash, cars, and everything in between, as the rapper shows off his flashy side.”
We’re not sure if this video means that we should a expect a new project from Future since he hasn’t officially announced anything yet. But Future is known for dropping surprise tapes, so it’s safe to expect a new mixtape or album any day now.
To many of his surprised fans, not only did he release a new song but a video with it as well. The video visuals are distorted and very VHS tape-like. The production starts with a melody made with what sounds like a child’s toy but it fades into the background when the verse comes in but comes back with the chorus. The lyrics are about money and what it can do for a lady,
Via HNHH, the song itself comes with little information– Future shared it in a tweet, without prefacing it, and no producer credit it listed yet.
Ty Dolla $ign’s new album Campaign was released Friday, September 25. Leading up to the drop day, Dolla shared three tracks, “Stealing,” “Three Wayz,” featuring Travis Scott, “Campaign” featuring Future and “Zaddy.” The album is a nice mix of politically themed anthems and the bangers we got from his debut album Free TC. This album, similar to the first album, has some pretty exciting features including, Future, Migos, Travis Scott, his brother, TC, and a few others.
Ty’s fans seem to be enjoying every bit of the 16-track project.
There’s not much you can say about DJ Khaled that isn’t already tirelessly articulated by the man himself. His albums are usually preceded by a slew of chart topping records and a barrage of creative marketing that’s always entertaining to watch — Major Key is no exception to this.
With fourteen records total and three singles that were summer anthems, this is arguably the best of Khaled’s nine studio albums. Features include Jay Z, J.Cole, Nicki Minaj, Future, Travis $cott, Chris Brown and Drake just to scratch the surface. In an interview with ABC he said “…this is my biggest album…it represents my fans and my connection with them inspired me to make it.”
Future has had a pretty busy summer. If it’s not collabing on a mixtape with DJ Esco and a track with 21 Savage, then it’s signing a shoe deal with Reebok, and coming up soon is his joint tour with Drake. Now, his track, “Paparazzi (Dab)”, has been released. Unfortunately, however – he hates it.
The track is definitely a different kind of vibe for Future, and the “Dab young n****, dab” chorus is definitely a bit awkward, which is most likely why he didn’t like it, and even took to Twitter to share his disliking for the track:
Song leaked today called paparazzi(dab) I did it as a reference phuckin around a year ago,the fact I'm saying dab in chorus I hate it
Ty Dolla $ign and Future connect on a new song titled “Campaign.” Ty Dolla $ign premiered the new track today on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe. “Me and Future did this on our Purple Reign tour on the bus… It’s lit, I can’t wait for the people to hear it,” he said.
The last track Ty and Future collaborated on was the hit song “Blase,” which ended up going gold. Additionally, Ty is working on Beach House 3, the latest installment in his Beach House mixtape series. A release date has not been set for this project.
Admit it, when you heard “Panda” for the first time you were a bit confused. You found yourself realizing that it wasn’t actually Future rapping and needed some answers. And the funny thing is, Future was just as confused as you.
This weekend at his performance in Atlantic City, Desiigner performed “I Got The Keys” which isn’t even his song…it’s Futures. Basically this gives us the inevitable confirmation that we needed. Desiigner is indeed trying to be Future.
Stay tuned to see if Future responds (probably not tho).
DJ Khaled released his new single “I Got the Keys” featuring Jay Z and Future on Sunday after the BET Awards. The song is the second track off his upcoming album titled Major Key, which dropped today. Reportedly, Jay Z took a shot at Drake on the track saying “N***as always asking me the key / Till you own your own, you can’t be free / Till you’re on your own you can’t be me / How we still slaves in 2016?”
This might be Jay’s response to Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” where he says the “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella, then I turned into Jay.”
DJ Esco and Future team up again on Project E.T. Esco Terrestrial. Similar to 56 Nights, the mixtape is hosted by Future, and he handles all of the rapping while DJ Esco is the executive producer. The mixtape contains 16 songs, and Future is featured on 12 of those. Also featured is Drake, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Rae Sremmurd, Rich Homie Quan, Juicy J, and many more. On the production side, the mixtape includes beats from DJ Mustard, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, and Southside.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve been caught up in the Hendrix storm at least once.
Legally named Nayvadius Wilburn, Future, AKA Future Hendrix, AKA Super Future has shot to mega-stardom in the last five years. Currently, the rapper’s name is synonymous with whatever is trending at the moment. In 2015 alone, he put out three mixtapes and a studio album. He was also featured on nine billboard hits from other artists including Drake, Travis Scott and Rick Ross. You can’t go out these days without hearing at least three of his songs in one night. He’s dropped his own line of emojis that are superbly tailored to his lifestyle and legacy. He released EVOL, his fourth studio album, in February, making it his seventh full-length release in the past 16 months. He’s been with some of the baddest women in the game, brought four kids into the world, and it looks like this guy hasn’t even gotten winded yet.
Beyond the auto-tune and perfect Metro-Boomin’ production, Hendrix speaks on a struggle that some of his crowds can relate to. Climbing out of Kirkwood, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Future became more than a rapper, but a media mogul. On some of his most popular tracks, Future raps about using drugs to fight his demons, and the demons that money has created. As a teen he took a gunshot wound to the hand and in 2006 Future was arrested. It’s not uncommon for hip-hop artists to go from nothing to something, but Future has set the bar even higher for those looking to break into the game.
Future’s music career began when he worked with his cousin Rico Wade, who encouraged him to hone his writing skills and work towards being a rapper. Future calls Rico the “mastermind” of his sound. Hendrix started out as a songwriter, his big break coming when he co-wrote the hit “Racks” for YC in 2011. That same year, Drake joined him for a remix to “Tony Montana,” which propelled Future’s name into mainstream music. Since then, his infamous work ethic has resulted in a total of four studio albums and thirteen mixtapes so far, with the “Beast Mode 2” mixtape set for release in May of 2016. His mixtape 56 Nights was inspired by DJ Esco’s 56-night stay in a Dubai jail for possession of an illegal substance. DJ Esco’s powerful account of the experience ties in with the message on “March Madness.” The hit is one Future’s most well-known, with the social undertones of the song touching on the plight that African Americans face from the authorities. While he flaunts his money and rich tastes, he makes sure to stay connected to his home base and the people who support him the most.
The Future Hive is looking forward to JMBLYA in May to see Hendrix perform with a stacked line up including Kehlani, Rae Sremmurd, and Kevin Gates.
