Fuck Up Some Commas (Remix)
Future Feat. Big Sean & Rick Ross
Future Hendrix continues to keep the content coming. Just hours after dropping off the official video for “Lay Up”, he decides to give his Monster street cut, “Commas”, the remix treatment, adding two new verses from MMG bawse Rick Ross and G.O.O.D. Music’s own Big Sean.
Commas (Thelonious Martin Remix)
Future's "Commas" has proved to be the rapper's biggest hit out of his impressive mixtape run of the last 6 months. We've heard plenty of remixed from fellow rappers doing their best to upstage Fewtch's infectious vocals, but so far no one has really done the Southside beat justice.
Real Sisters (Remix)
If there's one thing we know about Trey Songz, it's that he doesn't give a fuck if the other two participating members of a threesome are real sisters. That same sentiment was expressed by Future on a Beast Mode track, and today, Songz comes to reclaim his title as Mr. Steal Your Girl/Sister/Daughters. Hide your kids, hide your wife.
Doper Dealers (Freestyle)
After dropping 3 mixtapes over the course of 6 months, Future has quite a few records getting rotation these days. "Commas" is still the most inescapable, but there are a couple other bangers challenging its status as the hottest Future record. One of those songs is "Trap Niggas," a highlight from Fewtch's most recent offering, 56 Nights. It's been getting picked up as a freestyle track over the last couple weeks, which is always a good sign, and the most recent take on it comes from NY up-and-comer, Troy Ave.
Ghost Fuck Up Everything
Not to be outdone by his fellow L.O.X. member Jadakiss, Styles P has dropped off two freestyles today. The first comes in over Future's nationwide hit, "Fuck Up Some Commas." Not to be outdone by the Freebandz President, Styles P titles his "Ghost Fuck Up Everything." As his comrades Jada and Sheek Louch have spent the past few weeks mining late the '90s/early 2000s New York scene for dusty gems from The Alchemist, Swizz Beatz, DJ Premier and others, it's interesting to see Styles take a completely different approach and go after recently-released instrumentals.
Vince Staples Feat. Future
When we were out at Action Bronson's "South By South Wonderful" event, Vince Staples left us in shock and awe when he dropped an unreleased Future collaboration. Beyond the fact that we never expected to see those two on the same track, it also went ridiculously hard. Today, he's dropped the track, titled "Señorita" and also featuring Snoh Aalegra.
Ciara Feat. Petey Pablo
Until very recently, Ciara was off the market. But then Future got a little too wild, fucked up one too many commas, and just like that, she was a free agent once again. This week, she showed up with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to the White House correspondents dinner, leading to her fans spamming Future's social media with football emojis, so this one goes out to the new couple.
Oooooh (New Version)
Young Scooter Feat. Future
Back in January, Future and Zaytoven dropped the Beast Mode tape (still one of the year's best in this writer's opinion), and included on there was a jam with Young Scooter called "Oooooh." Now Scooter's gone and repurposed it for his upcoming tape Juggathon, and as the original featured one of his best verses to date, we're not mad at all.
I Ain't Going Back Broke (Remix)
Mavado Feat. Vybz Kartel, Ace Hood & Future
Along with Popcaan, Jamaica's Mavado was one of the guys who came up under dancehall legend Vybz Kartel before he went away for life on murder charges. Today, Kartel shows up on a remix of Mavado's "I Ain't Going Back Broke" along with Ace Hood and Future. The catchy track is bolstered by strong vocal performances from Mavado and Mr. Freebandz on the hook, and great verses by Kartel and Ace. The latter's, coming at the very end of the track, is one his most melodic, seamlessly blending in with the auto-tune-loving dancehall artists while still displaying his lyrical gift.
Future's "Fuck Up Some Commas," now shortened to the more radio-friendly, "Commas," has slowly but surely become the rapper's biggest hit in some time. Of course, the song is now making the rounds as a freestyle track, which should make sure the unmistakable 808 Mafia screech will be ringing out from cars everywhere.
Never Gon Lose
"Never Gon Lose" is one of our favorite tracks off Future's new mixtape 56 Nights. The beat, courtesy of 808 Mafia's Southside, is sultry and perfectly suited for Future's unique style. Future starts the song by yelling "DJ Eskimo City the coolest DJ on the mothafuckin' planet" and then proceeds to get it on with his trademark triplet flow. He gets a nice groove going, and it's pretty surprising when the song ends at the three minute mark. It's easy to imagine Future getting in the zone drunk in the studio and just rapping on this beat for a few hours or more.
On Friday night, Future decided to pull a fast one and surprise fans with a brand new mixtape called 56 Nights, which is a reference to his DJ’s (Esco) 56 day stint in a Dubai prison for a marijuana possession.
Future's descent down the rabbit hole of drugs and thinly-veiled depression continues. Ever since his much-publicized breakup with Ciara, the Freebandz general has spent more time singing about getting fucked up and engaging in empty relationships, cataloguing his exploits and sadness in songs such as Monster's "Codeine Crazy" and Beast Mode's "Just Like Bruddas." "March Madness," a new loosie produced by 808 Mafia's Tarantino, is the latest of these.
Waka Flocka & Future
Waka Flocka and Future, aka Future Flocka, have teamed up for a new joint that will appear on the forthcoming Digital Trapstars mixtape, in CDQ quality. You might recall hearing this joint on Flocka's The Turn Up Godz Tour mixtape, under the name "All These Bitches," however here's the final, tagless version to enjoy. "Rotation" has a hook from Future, and production from Southside of 808 Mafia.
Juicy J Feat. Kevin Gates, Future & Sage The Gemini
"Furious 7" is shaping up to be the hip-hop movie of 2015. Regardless of your expectations for the film, the soundtrack hosts some of the biggest stars in the game, and "Payback" is the most star-studded collab we've heard yet. The track features Juicy J, Kevin Gates, Future, and Sage the Gemini; four different rappers, and four wildly different rapping styles. One should note that this initial recording features a clip of "Ride Out", the soundtrack's leading single, in the seconds before "Payback" gets going.
All These Bitches
Waka Flocka Feat. Future
The sound that Waka Flocka Flame and Lex Luger created on Flockavelli has been run with in Atlanta for so long that Waka almost feels like an OG in the region. Future, who appears on his new record, "All These Bitches", seems more like a descendant than a contemporary, but here they feed off of each other much like Gucci and Flocka did in their heyday.
Drinks On Us (Remix)
The Weeknd previewed his remix to Mike Will Made It's "Drinks On Us" earlier today, and now he's let go of the full version of his remix. Abel takes the first two minutes to himself, smoothing out Swae Lee's screechy melody into a more traditional R&B vocal. From there he takes things into his own territory, but takes the swag of a rapper for the remainder of his verse, boasting about just about everything, including his jawline definition.
Travi$ Scott Feat. Future
Along with the announcement of his "Rodeo" Tour with Young Thug & Metro Boomin, Travis Scott decided to drop off two new songs on his soundcloud page tonight, the first being this Future-assisted banger called “High Fashion”.
As much as Migos are billed as "New Atlanta", their formula is more of a continuation of Gucci Mane's sound than anything. While their flows may be a little flashier, the Zaytoven production they favor could've come straight off of a 2009 GuWop tape, and Future's latest project finds him similarly paying tribute to that era.
I Ain't Going Back Broke
Mavado Feat. Future & Ace Hood
Mavado may be the first dancehall artist to cross over to a North American audience in some time. That's DJ Khaled's plan at least, pairing the Jamaican vocalist with some hip hop collaborators on "I Ain't Going Back Broke". Mavado is joined by fellow We The Best artist Ace Hood, as well as Future, who makes sense as a collaborator, seeing that dancehall predated rap's auto-tune obsession by at least a couple years.
