Future is a hit maker. In fact, smash records preceded and firmed his identity. In 2011, he penned YC’s mammoth single “Racks” before dropping his own chart climber “Tony Montana,” ushering in his debut album Pluto (later repackaged as Pluto 3D). The rookie’s kickoff would earn a Gold certification by harvesting four more singles: “Magic” (remix), featuring T.I., the lexicon-imbuing “Same Damn Time,” and hypnotic that is “Turn On The Lights.” Fittingly nicknamed the “Astronaut Kid,” the 2012 XXL Freshman soared in 2013 via colossal collaborations as artist (“Real and True” with Miley Cyrus), scribe (Rihanna’s “Loveeeeee Song”), and stadium draw (Drake’s “Would You Like A Tour?). 2014 would host his sophomore album Honest, birthing the title track single and the street sweeper “Move That Dope,” featuring Pusha T and a post-“Happy” Pharell Williams.
What has kept Future more rock star than pop star is his benevolence. He keeps the hood fed year-round––often complimentary. Before signing to EPIC in 2011, he gifted several stellar mixtapes, most notably 1000, True Story, Dirty Sprite and the Gucci Mane collaboration Free Bricks. Immediately after signing his deal, he offered Streetz Calling and later the 21-track Astronaut Status, platinum-selling compilation F.B.G.: The Movie, and most recently Monster, Beastmode and 56 Nights. The latter three gave dirt roads and concrete corners the cardio-shot “Commas,” “Real Sisters” and “Trap Niggas,” raising the demand for Future’s third album to a fever pitch (his millions of social media followers concur).
The new King of the South’s latest and third album, DS2 (Dirty Sprite 2), a nod to his early mixtape and spiked soda of choice, is a deluxe offering to the “Future Hive” faithful. On none of his former compositions has he sounded so comfortable in his truth (“They tried to make a pop star/and they made a monster,” he spills on “I Serve The Bass”).
