Future is stuck somewhere between his past and his present.

So, I like Future but I don’t Love Future. I like to make that distinction because a lot of niggas really LOVE future. He galvanizes toxic masculinity and makes niggas feel like they’re the real victims of their own actions. Future makes music for the niggas that say “man fuck that bitch” out loud instead of crying when a woman doesn’t text them back. Future makes music for the dude who cheats on his girl a thousand times only to feel betrayed when she texts another dude past midnight. Every dude that claims to have no feelings for women and moves on to the next prays to Future like a God. To be fair they should, he doesn’t say a lot but Future always finds unique ways to mix heartbreak, drug abuse and trapping in every song. I find it really pretty impressive, it’s like watching an episode of that show Chopped where the surprise ingredient is always lean. “How does he do it?” Future is a talented guy that treats women poorly enough to cause emotional pain but not poorly enough that they gotta get restraining orders against him. He’s got a good handle on his emotional abuse; he’s not a villain as much as he’s just a jerk. Beyond his treatment of women, Future is a motivated artist who can produce music at a very impressive pace. So, when he revealed that Beast Mode 2 was coming out this month, his fan base lit up like a Christmas tree and got ready for another sermon from Father Future. I on the other hand wasn’t too excited, but then I woke up really sad this morning and bought a designer belt, so I think it’s a sign I’m ready for Beast Mode 2.

Future’s SAVE ME EP Is Fine But Doesn’t Stand Out In His Discography

Future had great success out of the gate in his career with singles like “Racks”, “Tony Montana” and “Magic” and it seemed as though he’d found his lane early on, but he really shot into superstar status with the success of his 2014 Halloween mixtape Monster. He took a step forward musically with songs like “Throw Away” and “Codeine Crazy”. Crucially, he kept the momentum going with his collaborative mixtape with Zaytoven, Beast Mode, then with 56 Nights. It all culminated with DS2 in the summer of 2015, marking four successful projects in nine months. Future had caught a second wind in his career and made the most of it. At that point, he was one of the biggest rappers in the world. I don’t think even the biggest Future fan in the world would argue when I say that currently, that period was the biggest and best in his run. He’s maintained his high work rate since, with five mixtapes, four albums and now two EPs, but none of them have really captured the magic of that era that it feels like Future has been chasing and the fact that he’s so adamant about always having new music feels as though he’s throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks. His most recent album was The WIZRD from January. It featured a rare press run and the typical roll out but still failed to stay in Hip-Hop conversations for longer than a few days, a week at most. Perhaps aware of the lack of reception, the rapper wiped his social media, which his fanbase understands as a reason to get excited. A couple of weeks later, we had a new EP called SAVE ME.
