Releasing three mixtapes over the course of six months is no easy task; dropping three that are celebrated by critics and fans alike is almost unthinkable.
Diamonds were a major theme of Drake and Future's recent joint album, What a Time to Be Alive. Diamonds adorned the Shutterstock cover art and were the subject of the tape's second biggest hit (currently at No. 53).
Drake just premiered his and Future's new joint album, What a Time to Be Alive, on OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1. He played the massively anticipated release back to back, and after the show, at 8 PM, the album was listed on iTunes.
What a Time to Be Alive was just played back to back by Drake on the latest episode of OVO Sound Radio. Metro Boomin and DJ Esco were not live in the mix, as was previously expected; instead, Drizzy was the show's emcee for the night.
Soon after Drake began playing What a Time to Be Alive, he posted the tracklist on Instagram. 💎💎💎💎💎 AVAILABLE ON ITUNES AT 8PM A photo posted by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on Sep 20, 2015 at 3:49pm PDT
Alright, y'all. The time has come. We're not gonna make too many audacious statements, but something about tonight feels rather historic. What a Time to Be Alive, as they say.
Young Scooter cemented his rep as one of the hottest ATL street rappers with his latest mixtape, Juggathon, entirely produced by Zaytoven. He's now given a video to the tape's biggest track, "Hit It Raw," featuring his Freebandz boss, Future.
An Angela Yee slip-up on air earlier this week opened the floodgates for speculation regarding a possible Drake/Future mixtape, and there is substantial evidence supporting the theory that this tape is not only happening, it's dropping today.&nb
Earlier this month, we were introduced to Chicago's Zona Man via his track "Mean To Me," which had him linking up with a hometown hero (Lil Durk) and his unlikely new label boss (Future) over a beat from longtime Chicago drill revolutionary C-Sick.
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&n
Future's rise to stardom wouldn't be possible without the help of Mike Will Made It, and vice versa. Mike Will produced many of Future's breakout hits, including Pluto's "Turn on the Lights", and he executively produced last year's Honest.
Scrolling through the comments on a Young Thug Instagram post is an experience like no other, even in an age when being able to hide behind a computer screen has made disparaging trolls out of nearly all of us.
Since releasing his sophomore album, Honest, about a year ago, Future has been on a mixtape tear, sharing Monster last fall and the back-to-back heaters Beast Mode and 56 Nights this year.
Part of Future’s appeal lies in a musically indefinable existence. While both Pluto (and the 3D version) and Honest became somewhat of a set template for artists like Travi$ Scott, Future himself is a blend of the past, some not so distant.
