Metro Boomin inadvertently sparked a Twitter spat between Young Thug and Future earlier this week when he discouraged rappers from trying to keep up with Future's rate and quality of musical output.
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.
Future is one of the hottest rappers out, and part of that has to do with the sheer volume of music he's released in the last year -- but it wouldn't mean anything if the quality wasn't there too.
"Dis for the ones that abandoned me," Future wrote on Instagram one year ago today, hours after releasing his mixtape Monster.
Last year, a few days prior to Halloween, Future delivered one of of what would end being three mixtape projects, all of which contributed to a resurgence in his energy and his career.

After reappearing in the public eye through his Summer Jam stage crash, Papoose became inescapable for a hot minute, freestyling over any and every hot instrumental, and interpreting Kendrick Lamar's BET Cypher verse as directed at him.
After giving us visuals for both "Hardly" and "Monster" off his Monster mixtape, Future took a bit of a break before returning today with another Monster cut visualized, "Mad Luv." Future visits his native Atlanta to shoot the visual with his posse, with cam
A week or so removed from his recent mixtape, Monster, Future decides to give us the greenlight to release a non-tagged up version of his collaboration with Lil Wayne, "After That." The song is produced by TM88 and Southside of 808 Mafia, and was definitely a
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.
