We look back on Future's finest mixtape tracks.
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. These merely cap off a half-decade in which the Freebandz president has dominated the ATL mixtape circuit, dropping off at least 12 tapes (if you count collaborative ones with Gucci Mane, DJ Esco, the rest of Freebandz, etc.) in that time.
With many of his mixtape tracks being strong enough to later appear on Pluto and Honest in remixed form, Future Hendrix clearly knows how to craft street anthems at the drop of a hat. He's arguably seen more free releases translated into radio hits than anyone else recently (look at what Monster's "Fuck Up Some Commas" is doing now), and has his fair share of fire deep cuts to boot.
Today, we mine the auto tune warbler's extensive free discography for the 30 finest cuts. The list is presented in chronological order from 2010's 1000 onward, and Future's joint tapes with other artists are eligible for the list. Let us know what you think we missed.
