Come and feast your ears on what you have come to expect from Future; vocal warble, 808 bass melodies, metallic snare rolls, and a unique street-speak that, as the ATL ambassador has already stated on ‘Stick Talk’ – “you can't understand us cause you're too soft.” Actually, much of it can be understood, buried under all the mumbling, which in and of itself, is a combination of autotune and, as you will hear in interviews with Future – an extremely fluttery trill produced quite naturally by Mr. Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn. While I wasn’t into both regional mumble rap and SoundCloud rappers as their popularity gained momentum, I had years to acclimate to these vocal styles and beats, enough to see tons more merit than meets the eye, yet consequently, enough time to see the lack of evolution in this era of Hip Hop. Future has tons of hits on Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD, yet like the asininely misspelled album title, this is all the same shtick in 2019 as it ever was, with the same sounds, however polished. What’s more, the redundant tracks also contained here are now maddeningly repetitive. Short of a deep dive akin to doctoral research, on the surface levels, these songs and subjects are ceaselessly formulaic– and I would much rather hear 10 cream of the crop tracks on a more refined album than 20 tracks about the same thing.
