20 of the Best Lyrics From Future’s ‘HNDRXX’ Album
Surprise releases are nothing new in hip-hop, but Future has taken the notion to another level this year. The Atlanta rapper released not one but two albums in as many weeks this month and is giving his peers some serious competition.
Future stands as the current king of trap music and one of the hottest acts in the game as of late. One of the more consistent and prolific artists over the past few years, the underground legend-turned-mainstream superstar has quietly built one of the more loyal fan bases in music, allowing him to release new projects at will, whether it be mixtapes catering to his core audience or high-profile studio albums.
He took his foot off the pedal a bit in 2016, and spent most of the year riding off the wave of his monstrous 2015, along with hits from his Purple Reign mixtape and fourth solo studio album, EVOL. Just two months in to 2017, Future has returned in a big way. He affirmed his star power with a self-titled album and the announcement of his upcoming Nobody Safe Tour alongside the likes of Young Thug, A$AP Ferg, Migos, Kodak Black and Tory Lanez.
On the flip side, he found his name in headlines after rumors that his long-standing lawsuit with former partner Rocko had been settled, requiring the rapper to give up half of the royalties from his next two albums.
While those rumors have yet to be confirmed, if there is any truth to it, Future has wasted no time in attempting to cover the debt, first releasing his fifth studio album, Future, just last week, days after news of the lawsuit settlement came to light. This week, he secured another No. 1 album debut on the Billboard 200, as well as critical acclaim. And today (Feb. 24), the rhymer went directly back into the vaults, unleashing another studio album titled HNDRXX, his second album release in a week's time.
Future may have been a return to the rapper's more gutter musings, but HNDRXX is geared towards the opposite sex, with guest appearances from the likes of The Weeknd and Rihanna.
After delving deep into Future's latest offering and giving it a focused listen, we've compiled 20 of the best lyrics on HNDRXX that are sure to catch your ear or move your soul.
"She told me she was an angel/She fucked two rappers and three singers/She got a few athletes on speed dial/I'm tryna get the case dismissed before I see trial"
"They said I couldn't reach Mars, so I turned to a star/Now I might have fucked around, might have raised up the bar/Now I'm talkin' cash, talk cash all in my palm/My nigga Cash said, 'Watch what they do for the one'/I know she wanna be poppin' all over the 'Gram/When the cameras come out, wanna hold my hand" - The Weeknd
"I might end up with your hoe if I take one/Nowadays if they don't have a story, they gon' make one/Last night I gave my heart to a fake one/I done end up on the blogs with the wrong one/It's hard to tell the real stories from the fake ones/'Cause nowadays if they don't got it they'll make one" - Future
"We take shoppin' sprees, I can bring the store to me/I don't get top money, please, bitch I'm out they league/Raf Simons, Rick Owens, cost 200 Gs/Cash out mad Gs, bustin' down APs/Handmade one of one Riccardo Tisci/Crystal diamonds on my sleeves, L-O-V-E"
"Let this champagne start flowin', drink it up 'til it's empty/Got this V.I.P. section burnin' like a chimney/We ain't gotta emphasize nobody, we done bought the building/Let's go zip out to Australia, we can go to Switzerland/We got a chauffeur and a translator for it, he don't speak English/Sometimes when you speak from your soul it sound like you singing"
"I wanna take you out to Paris and buy you better clothes/White Phantom, white Phantom or the white rose/Speakin' of modelin', you look marvelous/Hit your girl up and tell' em that you're all iced up /I try my best to put my ego first, I'd need to stop it/Keep it real, you lookin' exotic"
"Never ever let the money stop, dirty police trying to fuck it up/If money come, he wanna pull you over, just to say something under there/Baby momma' back drinking liquor, now she trying to fuck my life up/I'm out here to get this money baby, 37, throwin' dice up"
"Kissin' on the water with my chains out/My life is more effective than a cocaine drought/'Cause I would travel to grandma's house when I came out/I said it for the streets, they made my own lane, oh/When you get high enough you can dodge rain drops/But tell your mama or your daddy you in the game now"
"We been textin' back and forth/Now it's time to get it crackin'/Girl take it all out, 'cause I know you active/Did you come to talk or is you 'bout that action?/Diamonds on my neck, moonwalkin', Michael Jackson"
"I just wanna be there for my daughters, they need me/I just wanna be there for the game, then leave it/Carmelos, Irwing, gettin' no Z, Zs/Connoisseurs of purp, gotta give 'em a repeat/Turbo sex in session in a Porsche on a one way/Amigo down in Texas, we gon' get us some Grande"
"Is that you, Ms. Sagittarius? Tell me what a Sagittarius do/You only eat vegetarian food, in the backseat of the Maybach/You don't speak English: immigration, promise I won't leave you waitin'/Catch a Uber to the dealership, girl you gon' pick up your new registration"
"VVSs wasn't given to me, ain't no stresses I'ma give 'em to ya/No confessions, you can book the suite, I might even let you book the villa/Pour me up and let me get right/Chain swangin', this a pair of ice/Maintain, go to paradise/I'ma send for you, book the last flight"
"Fundamentals, keep it really simple/Richard Mille, I did for OGD/Save it up and send it OT/Makin' mills tryna OD/I'm in the Hills tryna find peace/These Bel Air neighbors so nosy/Black Draco, got me cozy/It was perfect timing like a Rollie"
"We off the boulevard, it's way too real/They took away Morris Brown, shit was way too real/Grew up three minutes from downtown, shit get way too real/I got them Texas boppers on call, shit get way too trill/I got your ex tryna call, shit gettin' way too real/You know when the shits, shit get way too real"
"Nowadays I deal with lawsuits/You tellin' me that's what it came to/Licking your panties and bras, aww/This is how a nigga remember you/After I hit it and smash in it/You should never ever ever let a square get it/I'm the one put all the flames on you/I had you tatting my name on you"
"I just hit the lick of South France/Currency exchange, lookin' fancy/If that money dirty, make it dance/Twenty-five karats cost a mansion/Gold rose petals, bottle standin'/Came from the concrete, takin' chances/Pop gold Ace like a Xanny/I just need the blessin' from your family" - Future
"Gotta drink my blood like the Hebrew/'Cause I've been gettin' fly since Evisu/Made her spit sides in Ibiza/I can get you off in Belgium/Tryna shine me off very seldom/Grab a couple chicks, then nail them/Take 'em to the hood, then sell them/Fam come first, you never fail them"
"Sold crack to a pregnant lady/Forgive me for the crack baby/If I open up my eyes, it turn black for real/Pack was too small, I ain't have it vacuum sealed/Word to Uncle Charles, nigga I got the sack for real/Money, broads, lawyers cost a half a mil'"
"It can get scary when you legendary/Caramel complexion, that's a Halle Berry/Cash rules everything around music/The game doped up, every nigga usin'/Grab the .50 carbon, hit him with the tool/I'm not tryna argue, I got issues/You see what I've been put up against, baby/You see why I've been tryna make the rent, baby"
"Ayy, my Lamb hit a pothole, these bitches some thot hoes/I hit the lotto in South Africano/Yacht party, sittin' at the dock of the condo/Better not be late, bitch, you better come pronto/Better come with a combo/Asian persuasion, Cubana, mi an/Yolanda, Sholanda, Miyana, Mufasa/I don't know Spanish, I barely talk proper"
