On The Come Up: Ralo
Ralo has weathered multiple stints in prison and worse in the course of life spent in Atlanta's The Bluff, one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the nation. Now associated with Black Migo Game and Future's Freeband Gang, he has become an artist to watch on the thriving Atlanta scene. He spoke with HNHH recently on his rough upbringing and his burgeoning rap career.

Jeezy Feat. Future & 2 Chainz
Jeezy dropped "Magic City Monday" feat. Future and 2 Chainz back in June and we haven't heard much from him since. He makes a glorious return today with the song's official video, in which he heads to the famous strip club on the planet (on a Monday!) with about forty bricks of $1 bills.

By now, most of you are aware that Drake is making his “Summer Sixteen” Tour a don’t-miss event in whatever city he’s in.

Future Brought Out Young Thug Last Night For "Summer Sixteen" Tour In NYC
Future & Young Thug
Last night, Drake and Future's "Summer Sixteen" tour finally hit NYC. The duo have shows back-to-back there, but the first night has proved to be quite exciting, we'll have to see if the nights that follow stack up. Drake has dominated the conversation though, because of comments he made in response to Ebro recently telling the contents of their private/off-the-record conversation. However Future did his thing too-- and he even brought out Young Thug. Check out a video clip of the ATLien performing "Best Friend" at Madison Square Gardens last night.
Young Thug & Lil Durk Listen To Unreleased Future Record In Studio
Young Thug & Lil Durk
It appears Young Thug & Lil Durk were in the studio together this week, and they’re apparently doing more than just cooking up new material. Thanks to XXL, who captured the snapchat footage, Durk & Thugger can be seen jamming out to what sounds like an unreleased record from Future. No word yet as for what the song is called or where it’ll end up, but hopefully we can hear it sooner rather than later. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
Future Brings Out Chance The Rapper At Lollapalooza
Future & Chance The Rapper
Chance The Rapper crashed many-a-set at Bonnaroo, so it was only right that he did the same in his hometown of Chicago's largest festival, Lollapalooza. The Coloring Book rapper made an appearance during Future's set, giving fans a rendition of "No Problem," his go-to record when surprise-guesting, and unsurprisingly the Chicago crowd gave him a whole lot back. Unfortunately, Future and Chance did not do their own collab from CB, "Smoke Break," but it was a beautiful moment nonetheless.
Russell Wilson Speaks About His Role As A Stepdad To Baby Future
Russell Wilson might be getting crushed on the internet today for his new, over the top "Armed & Dangeruss" poster but it's going to be hard to hate on a guy who has spoken so passionately about the love he has for his stepson.
Future & DJ Esco "Juice" Video
Future & DJ Esco
DJ Esco's Project ET: Esco Terrestrial is like 56 Nights and No Sleep before it, is largely a collaboration with Future. "Juice" wasn't necessarily one of the more immediate songs of the bunch, but its been chosen to get the video treatment, likely due to the OJ Simpson concept its hook suggests. As a result, we see white Broncos, police chases, sideline cheering and even some clips from the trial itself.
DJ Khaled Feat. Jay Z & Future "I Got The Keys" Video
DJ Khaled Feat. Jay Z & Future
Over two months ago, Southside let it slip that he had taken part in producing a record that features Future, Jay Z, and DJ Khaled. The next month, it was revealed that this particular anthem indeed exists and that it belongs to DJ Khaled. Reserved for his upcoming album, Major Key, the kingpin collaboration was titled "I Got the Keys." Summer is now fully underway, and as much of the hip-hop world was tuned into the BET Awards tonight, Khaled decided that the time was ripe to finally share his highly anticipated new single.
Jamie Foxx Raps As Future's Father, AKA Past, In New Verizon Commercial
Millions upon millions were just tuned in to Game 7, and the big corporations came ready with big-budget commercials curated especially for tonight's game. One of the most memorable -- and questionable -- ads came from Verizon, who enlisted Jamie Foxx to play an old man with a white beard, black dreads, and an outfit that looks like a thrift shop version of what Future might wear. And it so happens that this man's name is "Past," aka Future's father. The song opens with a Lex Luger-like intro and then goes into a generic trap beat filled with the 808 Mafia sirens.
Future "Wicked" Video
Though EVOL, released in early February, was his third No. 1 album in less than a year, it also marked the beginning of a relatively slow period for Future. Beginning in late 2014, he set out on one of the more enviable tears in modern rap history. In fact, upon the release of EVOL, it became clear that he had overfed the streets, as his record-breaking Purple Reign mixtape had dropped just a few weeks earlier.
Jo Rodeo Feat. Future "Come Wit Me" Video
Jo Rodeo Feat. Future
Jo Rodeo hit the lottery with a Future feature on his new track "Come Wit Me." For the video, the Rodeo/Fewtch duo head to a tropical oceanside mansion stocked with a harem of scantily clad females and several luxury cars. Rodeo is especially lucky to catch Future in one of his depressive states -- that sort of low, brooding mindset that produced "Codeine Crazy." "I wasn't in my right state of mind last year," he sings... "My vision is deeper than any ocean, I know that love will turn on you." "Come Wit Me" is ostensibly a love song, but Future is sending women a coded message.
Future Performs "Wicked" On Jimmy Fallon
Following up last month’s Saturday Night Live performance, Future continued his late night television run by making his way by Jimmy Fallon Thursday night and serving as the evening’s musical guest. Taking the stage backed by some male dancers, who were “hitting them folks,” Future went on to perform his Metro Boomin & Southside-produced Purple Reign cut “Wicked,” which is serving as his new single available on iTunes right now. Check out the performance above.
Lil Wayne Feat. Future, Yo Gotti "Cross Me" Video
Lil Wayne Feat. Future & Yo Gotti
Revisiting his No Ceilings 2 mixtape, Lil Wayne decides to come through today and share the official video for his Yo Gotti & Future-assisted record “Cross Me.”
Taylor Swift Raps Along To "Jumpman" In New Apple Commercial
Apple has tapped Taylor Swift to star in their new commercial promoting Apple Music, a choice candidate to bridge the gap between pop/country-loving fans and hip-hop-loving fans, as T-Swift chooses a rap song to get her hype for her cardio work out. Apparently, a little too hype. Taylor Swift finds a #gymflow playlist, and clicks on Drake & Future's stand-out WATTBA cut, "Jumpman." With the opening "If young Metro..." tag, Taylor quickly starts rapping along, hand movements and all, before getting so into it she loses her footing and falls off the treadmill.
Future Feat. The Weeknd "Low Life" Video
Future Feat. The Weeknd
Things got a little crazy today -- what with Young Thug's Slime Season 3 and Quentin Miller revealing a sensational tidbit to further continue the ghostwriting fiasco that dominated much of last year. As has often been the case when the news cycle is particularly chaotic -- knock, knock -- it's Future Hendrix, here to drop another bomb to start the weekend.
