Young Scooter’s “Lil Mexico” buddy Future has been killin’ it lately via his mixtape run (Monster, Beast Mode and 56 Nights) so it’s only natural Young Scooter would use this as some sort of inspiration. And, actually, he has. His latest mixtape Jug Season is a terrific addition to the Atlanta hip-hop cannon. Here, with the track title, Scooter channels some inner pain. Check it out after the jump.
Calling Fire Marshall Future. During Future’s new visuals for his Monster cut “F**k Up Some Commas” there are multiple fires started but Future is virtually unfazed by this. Fitting given his recent mixtape run (the aforementioned Monster, Beast Mode and the most recent 56 Nights with DJ Esco) is nothing but straight up heat. In the visuals here Future is almost literally “torching” everything in sight. This sentiment may also allude to his unstoppable nature as of late, as everything he touches turns into flames. Anyway, enough with the pyromaniac nonsense. Peep Future’s latest video for “F**k Up Some Commas” after the jump.
