Future's had quite the year, and we're still only in the first quarter. The Atlanta rapper recently nabbed his third #1 album with the Apple-released EVOL, which itself was a very quick follow-up from his Purple Reign mixtape.
In addition to helming his own Black Migo Gang unit, Young Scooter has been affiliated with Freebandz Gang over the years. Most recently, Future spit a verse on "Lifestyle" off Scooter's mixtape Married to the Streets 2.
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.

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.
K.E. On The Track has been the subject of some controversy recently. He was accused of taking credit for a beat that wasn't his a few weeks ago, after Rick Ross and Jay Z's "The Devil Is A Lie" arrived bearing his name as producer.
T-Pain is well-known for his use of auto-tune, and recently took to Instagram to throw some shots at fellow pitch-correction abuser Future. The rapper turnt singer poked fun at the Bugatti used in the video for the Ace Hood-helmed track that Future sing
