I think my ultimate goal is to find music that make me scrunch up my face when it drops. West1ne made me do that with his frenetic, swirling instrumental release, “Kondo.” It’s fast paced, full of bass, and full of unpredictable twists and turns to keep you guessing as your head continues to bob in . . .
Lido is primarily known as a producer, but he’s been flexing his expanded skillset as of late on records such as “Solsbury Hill.” This is a futuristic pop song, full of relatable lyricism and polished vocals, all over top of the syrupy, melody-driven brand of production that made Lido pop in the first place. I . . .
Mike WiLL Made It‘s Ransom 2 project drops on March 24th, and “Razzle Dazzle” just might be an indication of what to expect. Featuring a guest appearance from Future, this one is a percussion-heavy banger with some verses that toe the line between vulnerable introspection and cocky boasts. Stream “Razzle Dazzle” below.
“A little stronger, a little wiser. Maybe a little more violent. Blame it on America.” Rick Ross‘s Rather You Than Me is only days away from releasing, and he seems to be on the way to another successful release, especially with the premiere of “Dead Presidents,” featuring Future, Jeezy and Yo Gotti. This is the . . .
After two successful back to back albums, Future‘s having a great start to 2017. He keeps the buzz going with a new video for “Use Me” today. The Atlanta-based superstar takes us back to the heartfelt HNDRXX highlight with a dramatic video that matches the song’s subject matter. There are a lot of new Future . . .
Disclaimer: I am a fan of Future’s music and have been longer than most people that will be upset by this article. If you’re the type of person that believes most things are never “that deep”, or the kind of person that enjoys using phrases like “fake outrage,” you might want to stop reading here. . . .
Ariana Grande released her Dangerous Woman album in May of 2016. Now we get the video for the Future featuring single, “Everyday.” This video is awesome in that it seems like they put caution to the wind by delivering some “hot and heavy” takes that managed to include a comical factor as well. Ariana’s team has gradually . . .
How appropriate that Kaelin Ellis referse to himself as not only a producer, but a “sound designer.” His latest release, “Unsung,” is equal parts soothing jazz and subtle futurism. This song would be welcome as an Adult Swim bump, or a Kendrick Lamar album interlude. Stream “Unsung” below.
When rumors started circulating about another Future dropping another album right after his self-titled album, many people thought it was a joke. Yet, here we are, listening to HNDRXX. The newly released project spans 17 tracks total, and includes guest features from the likes of The Weeknd and Rihanna. Stream HNDRXX now on Apple Beats . . .
Don’t. You. Ever. Deny. King. Future. A Good Morning. Dawg, I am not playing with you. It was mad early in the morning as I was exiting the Future-Hive so I could go to my office. I started getting mad notifications, like when my mother tags me in a picture on Facebook. I tried to ignore . . .
You could easily say that 2016 was one of the best years for hip-hop in recent memory, but who had the BEST year? The contributors at Artistic Manifesto submitted their pick of which artist had the biggest 2016, and wrote a speech from that artist’s perspective. Now it’s up to you, the reader, to decide . . .
This isn’t an album review. This is bible study. On Valentine’s Day, God sent his only begotten son to announce the release of his new album, Future. We won’t call it self-titled, we’ll call it self-loved. And hey, I know what you’re thinking, too. “Oh, the album just dropped. You’re downloading leaks! That’s not right!” Gah-damn . . .
As promised on Valentine’s Day, King Future has released his highly anticipated absolutely necessary, self-titled album. Announcing an album just three days prior to its release was very Beyoncé-like, indicating further proof that he is a ghost-writer for many. But hey, what do I know? I haven’t gotten an edge up in two weeks and . . .
“Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4) Here we are. Weeks into Trump’s presidency, days before payday, and two overdrafts fees deep into debt. When smiles turn into depression and Beyoncé doesn’t win album of the year, her ghostwriter, our . . .
“I don’t understand why you’re so cold to me, with every breath you breathe. I see there’s something going on.” Maroon 5 has drawn from some of the most influential hip-hop artists in the game a few times throughout their lengthy discography. This time, they tap Future Vandross for “Cold,” a solid single that questions . . .
