Future said the world is ready for his album, so here are five things we'd like to hear on it.

There are very few artists who rebound from a disappointing sophomore slump, and even fewer who do so solely on the back of mixtapes. Future's Honest, released in 2013, wasn't even a flop-- it spawned his most successful single to date, featured Andre 3000 and had some very solid deep cuts-- but it pales in comparison to what the Freebandz rapper has accomplished in its wake. MonsterBeast Mode and 56 Nights, all released within six months of each other, paired Future's more freewheeling, less structure-oriented vibe from his past mixtapes with more well-curated and consistent production, and are responsible for revitalizing his career.

Now that we've got #FutureHive, people who walk around mumbling "I think 56 Nights crazy" under their breath, and those who spend all day on Twitter asking where Ape Shit is, the pressure's on for Fewtch. The world is apparently ready for his next album, but how can he avoid the same pitfalls as Honest and stay atop this remarkable wave? We've got five suggestions...
