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.
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.

In this day and age, it’s not at all uncommon for artists to use social media to instantly share anything from their concerts to their pets to their deep late night thoughts with their fans. Snapchat is becoming a more popular medium because of its what’s-happening-now vibe and the fact that stories disappear after 24 hours so fans really have to be on their game if they want to catch their favorite artists’ every moment. Future took this idea and ran with it by sharing new music today via the popular app. Could this mean a new album soon? The great thing about the Internet is even though these snaps technically disappear within 24 hours, the real MVPs always find a way to save them. Listen to Future’s new snippets in the clips below.
Future *might* just play this new music when he headlines this year’s JMBLYA alongside a killer lineup: Kehlani, Rae Sremmurd, Kevin Gates, Jazz Cartier, Post Malone and more. This may just be the best JMBLYA yet, so don’t miss out. Get tickets while you still can at the links below.
Baauer is back again with more dope electronic sounds. The “Harlem Shake” producer has already killed it with big names in rap, like Fetty Wap. This new track called “Kung Fu”, Baauer recruited GOOD music prez Pusha T and Future Hendrix himself. Future was an excellent addition to this high energy banger. Pusha T takes both verses and fills them with his already prolific dope raps. Don’t be suprised when you hear “Kung Fu” at club, because thats exactly where this song should be. You can check “Kung Fu” below.
There isn’t too much guessing about what level Ferg and Future are on: FLY. In this new video for last month’s single, the pair flaunt their goods while a mob breaks out and some stunning effects flash on the screen. It’s a perfect video to dab and trap to. Check it out below.
