Travi$ Scott is dropping some new heat for you in 2015, as he’s scheduled to release his anticipated debut album Rodeo. Along with “Nothing But Net” (featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR) he is sharing “High Fashion” featuring Future and production by Metro Boomin, Southside and WondaGurl. Check it out after the jump.
Future continues his streak of dropping free material after his return to the mixtape circuit in late 2014 with Monster. Now he teams up with fellow Atlantan, one of the city’s most successful producers, Zaytoven. Beast Mode finds Future rapping with little help from others (there is only two features in Young Scooter and Juvenile). Safe to say the current streak Future is on is a welcome return to form for the autotune connoisseur. Stream and download Future and Zaytoven’s Beast Mode EP after the jump.
Lil Wayne preps the release of his forthcoming Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape amidst the battle over the release of his (currently) pending Tha Carter V album. And to tease the forthcoming Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape he is sharing a freestyle over Future’s Mike WiLL Made It-produced “Sh!t” instrumental. Listen after the jump.
When Hudson Mohawke teased the feature heavy version of his popular electronic instrumental banger “Chimes” fans have been thirsty for it ever since. And now, after dropping the Chimes EP earlier this year, Hudson is finally giving hip-hop heads the treat they’ve been waiting for. As promised “Chimes” features many of today’s hip-hop all-stars (Future, French Montana, Pusha T, and Travi$ Scott) contributing to the instrumental banger. Future with the crooning hook, French and Pusha with quick verses, and Travi$ doing… something only Travi$ can do. Listen after the jump.
Back in April when Future dropped his sophomore album Honest there was a track entitled “Never Satisfied” that featured a snippet of a Drake verse. Just as Drake begins singing the hook to “Never Satisfied” the song fades out and fans were… well… never satisfied. But now, the producer of that track Mike WiLL Made-It has made the full version available via his Soundcloud page. Hopefully you are now satisfied. Listen after the jump.
Here’s a meta song if there ever was one. Mike WiLL Made It, who is slated to drop his new mixtape Ransom, debuts a new song entitled “Pu**y Overrated” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Future. As I’m sure you all know both Wiz and Future recently had an ugly breakup with their baby mommas (Amber Rose and Ciara, respectively) and this track is essentially a disrespect to the former love interests of the two. Future even croons “You’re supposed to fu*k me like a star/You know you’re faking.” Jeez! Peep the new track after the jump.
Besides topping the charts on Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” single, Juicy J has had himself an awfully quiet 2014 thus far. But have no fear, as the Juice Mane stay trippy even when you’re least suspecting. And today the Memphis OG shared a new track “Ice” featuring Future and A$AP Ferg. The track is also produced by frequent collaborator Mike Will Made It. It bangs. After the jump!
Toronto rapper P Reign got that Drake upgrade but it comes on a run of Drakeovers that risk blurring into each other with his signatures dappled all over them. Nevermind the risk of fatigue, he delivers the scene-stealer verse, complete with the real mentions of names and locales from his kiss-and-tell adventures. On a joint called “Drunk and F*ck” after the jump.
The ATL should be renamed Boomtown because of what producer Metro Boomin has been doing to craft nouveau crunk, revamping gothic sounds with rolling merciless drums. Future even has to chirp up and rap to keep up with Metro’s muscle. Click for the track after the jump.
Future stumbles into the Chanel store just long enough to make this song-length ad for it. Young Thug joins on this clumsy track dedicated to saying the name of the leather giant as many times as possible. Silently wishing we could listen to only the production by itself. Check the track after the jump.
What makes a summer song? It’s sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It’s naked and unashamed, of course. The song’s gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They’re great songs because they’re disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time.
Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.
Remember that Future song from a few posts back? The one called “Rock Star” where he’s robot singing a classic Kenny G riff? Here’s the Nicki Minaj version of it. It sounds a little better with her verse as the lead-off and him chiming in. This is a banger, regardless.
Future is releasing something new that will likely redefine rap as much as he first did with his alien style two years ago. He refuses to choose between singing and bleating or rapping and groaning and that refusal has brought him to new planes of robot rap existence. Here’s one version of his song “Rock Star.” Listen after the jump.
This is what future music should sound like. ILoveMakkonen has the best new style and a strange name that shows how much he loves himself. A good message for the kids. He takes the robot singing of Future and T-Pain, darts to the Trap, and drags it through a muddy trail of intoxication. He is what would happen if all raps were sung, and what that would mean about the words you hear. His new video after the jump.
