20 of the Best Future Songs
At this present moment in time, Future is one of the hottest rap artists in the game, and has ascended into rare air. Unleashing three projects in 2016 — Purple Reign, EVOL and the DJ Esco collaboration Project E.T. — Future spent much of the year with his name on the charts and the tip of rap fans and tastemakers’ tongues alike, but remained relatively quiet on the musical front aside from those two first-quarter releases.
Known for pushing the pedal when it comes to servicing new music to the public, Future would go a year without blessing the fans with a fresh project, opting to hunker down in the studio in between hitting the road. But Nayvadius has finally announced his return, setting social media and the rap world on fire with news that he would be dropping his fifth studio album on Feb. 17, continuing the growing trend of rappers catching their fans by surprise and capitalizing on the ensuing buzz.
His forthcoming self-titled album, Future, is being billed as a return to the rapper’s roots. The 17-track project will feature sounds and themes that will remind fans of his days in the underground prior to his leap to the A-List. Future is sure to grab the ears of a large segment of the rap world, as the Freebandz head honcho is at his peak as a superstar with a loyal fan base that is only growing by the year. With his Nobody Safe Tour kicking off in May and moving well into June, the rapper is about to have the summer on lock.
In celebration of his forthcoming release, we’ve compiled a list of 20 of the best songs — there are plenty more — that are essential in Future’s catalog. Did your favorite make the cut?
