Before Drake fucked up the game and live streamed What a Time to Be Alive, he played out a short mix, which included tracks from lesser-knowns such as Kodak Black and the UK group Section Boyz, as well as a couple of exclusives. The biggest non-WATTBA track played during tonight's special episode of OVO Sound Radio has to be PartyNextDoor's "Blasé" remix.
Shawty Lo Feat. Future
Future is on quite a roll right now, and his latest collab with Shawty Lo is yet another solid release, but it sounds like it could've been lying around for a minute. Young Fewtch hasn't been on an R&B tape recently, usually keeping things more in mumblecore territory. Thus, the bright, melodic, "Problems" sounds more akin from the Honest era.
Timbaland Feat. Tink & Future
Depending who you talk to, Timbaland can be seen as Tink's perfect collaborative partner, or the dude who's cramping her style. We'll just have to see if the latest collaboration changes anyone's mind -- a track with Timbo billed as the lead artist, while Tink and -- the man who can do no wrong -- Future Hendrix, are featured.
Rick Ross Feat. Future
Rick Ross isn't skimping on fans with his free album, Black Dollar. The project is not only stacked with tracks (there are seventeen new records on it, all with original production), he's also enlisted a few notable features. One of the more anticipated records when we saw the tracklist earlier today, is this Future-featured "Take Advantage."
I Can't Make This Up (Freestyle)
Twista is in the midst of an insane freestyle run, having released nearly a song a day for the past two weeks. He is the Joe DiMaggio of freestyles and has the potential to make it 56, showing no signs of slowing down. Last night he dropped another one, ripping off a couple of his trademark rapidfire verses over Future's "Can't Make This Up," which originally appeared on 2011 mixtape Streetz Calling.
I'm Sure Of It
Lil Don Loyal Feat. Future & Yung Booke
Lil Don Loyal is a new rapper from Atlanta who’s making his debut on HNHH tonight thanks to this Future-assisted single “Im Sure Of It” featuring Yung Booke. Coming off his upcoming Freeband Loyal mixtape, which drops September 11, “Im Sure Of It” finds Future taking care of the catchy hook, while Don Loyal & Yung Booke lay down some gritty bars of their own. Thanks to Future’s signature cadence, this track has the potential to really help this rising ATLien pick up momentum in the streets. Shit's pretty dope.
Uncle Murda Feat. Future
Future and Metro Boomin currently have the ear of every rapper in the game, even a dyed in the wool Brooklyn rapper like Uncle Murda. Looking for a taste of that dirty sprite, Murda recruits the ATL pair for his newest track "Right Now." Murda retains his usual gravelly flow and raps as usual about some extra-hood shit, thought his words take on a different flavor when infused with Metro's groggy vapor of a beat. Those promethazine fumes are inescapable no matter where you are the rap universe. Do you want to see Murda rap on more beats like this?
DeJ Loaf Feat. Future
Lately, Future can do no wrong. His #FutureHive can obviously attest to this, but Dirty Sprite 2 appears to be on rotation regardless of whether or not you count yourself among the #FutureHive stans. Today we turn our attention to DeJ Loaf's forthcoming EP, #AndSeeThatsTheThing, with a new collaboration she did with the lean enthusiast.
Codeine Crazy (Icarus Story)
With everyone going crazy for Future's new album right now, Vic Mensa chose the perfect time to debut the CDQ version of his "Codeine Crazy" cover. We previously saw the rapper perform the record live at the Pitchfork Music Festival, but now we have the official audio.
DJ Holiday Feat. Meek Mill, Future & T.I.
DJ Holiday just dropped his unbelievably stacked God Bless The Mixtape, and although it's hard to pick a highlight, any track with Meek MIll, Future and T.I. on it should be deserving. This one's called "Flexin," and was produced by DJ Spinz and Dun Deal.
Freak Hoes (Freestyle)
It seems like everyone was enjoying Future's DS2 album this weekend, including plenty of rappers. BeatKing was one of the many fans quoting the project on Twitter, and by the time he got to "Freak Hoes," he was convinced he needed to be on it.We don't disagree. The record is a take on a southern rap classic (TRU's song of the same name), repackaged for the current strip club set, but the vintage bounce is still present. BeatKing's been doing just that for a minute now, and if we didn't know better, we might almost assume it was produced by him.
Future is following up one of his very first mixtapes, Dirty Sprite, with Dirty Sprite 2, an album. Old fans get to see Future return to his roots, while new fans get a quick Future history lesson, and will likely go searching for the first Dirty Sprite, thus it acts as a win-win.
Where Ya At
Future Feat. Drake
We already knew Drake was a feature on Dirty Sprite 2, but with the tracklist arriving the other day, we found out that he is the -only- feature on the highly anticipated album. With the album dropping tomorrow, we've been blessed with the Drake-featured "Where Ya At" and it does not disappoint.
Casino Feat. Future & Young Scooter
If you somehow haven’t heard by now, Mexican drug lord, Joaquín Guzmán Loera aka El Chapo, managed to escape from a maximum security prison in Mexico on Saturday night, and has since been on the run, making news stories all around the world (and rightfully so).
Blow A Bag
The fast and furious ramp up to Dirty Sprite 2 continues as Future shares new single "Blow a Bag," featuring the all-star production lineup of Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital, and Southside.
Tricken Every Car I Get
Trae Tha Truth Feat. Future & Boosie Badazz
Whether on their many respective features or recent projects, Future and Boosie Badazz have been two of the most unstoppable, consistent forces in rap this year. Perhaps due to the difference in age and hometown, the two hadn't appeared side-by-side on a track in 2015 until today, when both show up for Trae Tha Truth's latest record. This one's called "Tricken Every Car I Get," and it's got Young Super Future on the hook and verses from Trae and Boosie.
Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Future & Rae Sremmurd
It's still early in the day, but Friday is looking to be a strong one for new music. After getting a new Meek Mill leak off DWMTM, featuring Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign follows suit with a drop from his highly anticipated album Free TC.
News Or Somthn
Following a string of new mixtapes, three to be precise, Future shows no signs of slowing down. He's starting the week by offering up some new music, part of a continuing series as he hashtagged the song on twitter #MONSTERMONDAY. The rapper gives us a jumpy flow with his signature auto-tune, over gleaming production from Nard & B. Future narrates tales of the trap, the jewels, the artillery, and the accompanied dangers that come with living in ATL.
Mean To Me
Zona Man Feat. Future & Lil Durk
Future's Freebandz label hasn't made any new additions in a while, but today they announce that Zona Man, an MC from Chicago, has joined the team. Here's his first track as an FBG artist, "Mean To Me." It features Future and Lil Durk and was produced by fellow Chicagoan C-Sick. Speaking to The Fader about the track, Zona said:
Just a few hours ago, we premiered the video for Audio Push's new remix of Future's "Commas," and now they've given us the green light to premiere the audio too. Check it out and download it here.
