After taking an unusual amount of time, by his standards, between releasing a full-length album or mixtape, Future is back again with a new long player to help raise his stock even higher than it's been over the past few years.
Future Hendrix scored a successful release with his last album, EVOL, and was still cruising off the momentum set during his monstrous breakout year in 2015, which included two platinum plaques. Now the Freebandz general is looking to put his mainstream aspirations on the back burner and service his core audience with more underground fare on his new self-titled album.
The Atlanta trap god's latest self-titled offering is an attempt to recapture the magic he made on landmark projects like Dirty Sprite and his now classic trilogy of mixtapes, Beast Mode, Monster and 56 Nights. And, after giving the album a spin, it's clear that his mission was accomplished.
Going for dolo over the album's 14 tracks, Future shows that he is a man of many moods, switching from boisterous boasts to moments of contemplation and introspection. Whether slyly referencing his fling with Larsa Pippen, NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen's wife, on "Rent Money," or reminiscing on his humble beginnings on "Might as Well," Future gives a mix of excitement and realness over production from the likes of Metro Boomin, Southside, 808 Mafia, and a slew of other elite beatsmiths.
With his new project being the hot release of the week and creating a major buzz, we've compiled 20 of the best lyrics from Future's album.
"I fuck dem Super Bowl bitches down in Houston/I got this westside freakin' like boostin'/I built my empire up like Lucious/Ay gimme pounds, gimme bricks, I'm a nuisance/I make the blogs with ya bitch 'cause I'm ruthless/I make the blogs with ya bitch 'cause I'm ruthless"
"I secure the bag first, I'm ready to boast/I secure the bag first, I'm full of that dope/Courtside with a mink, Pee Wee Kirkland on the scene/Five karats, wear the link, both hands full of ink"
"Fall back shooter like KD, back in the kitchen with the curry/Pourin' up, Xan can't hurt me, pineapple drink lookin' syrupy/Fifty six night I was 30, styrofoam cups same patient/Heard you been talkin' bout the kid, knowin' damn well that’s a flagrant"
"Rags to riches, fuck these snitches I ain't scared/Cold and shiesty put some prices on your head/Im a product of da young nigga with dreams/And my left wrist cost a bird, I'm a Tropicana serve"
"Giorgio Armani, I’m drippin’ in it/Aston Martin, I’m whippin’ in it/Shit gettin’ too specific/Ten black whips I’m too consistent/To my foreign bitches tell me if I’m too persistent/All my baby mamas, I just bought ‘em brand new Benzs"
"I be whippin’ the Lamb like a Charger/Get that money in the bag like a robber/When I whip it up, whip it up harder/To the young nigga rockin’ the Starter/I was sittin’ in the back of the Marta/Now I sit in the back of a foreign"
"Future high demand, Future high demand/I don’t walk on land, bitch I don’t ever walk on land/George Jetson you can’t see me, no/Do numbers like Boston George on Vimeo/I left that bih cause she was sleazy oooh/You can’t be saditty and greedy, no"
"We do a whole lotta numbers/Grab on that pussy like Donald/Porsche got a little bit of trunk/But it’s goin’ over 200/Turtlenecks all on my collar/Love when a pretty bitch swallow/I did it up, gravity/Super so radically"
"I see you makin' that lil' noise, but I ain't enthused/Kidnap, no flinch, I'ma set back and reminisce/Fuck that bitch, got a love for water whippin'/'Cause I don't see a nigga ridin' in a V12, that's too Venice"
"Tom Brady, Tony Snow/I just backdoored your ho/Goin' brazy at the jeweler/I just suicide my doors/Candy yams in the ‘partment/Living like Nino/I just come here, let me breathe/VVSs on my sleeves"
"Racks bustin’ out of niggas’ jeans/Might as well go and blow it/Smoke the loud like nicotine/Talk drugs and I record it/Conversate and I absorb it/Theodore, no informant/Percocets got me goin’/OG, coughing up a lung"
"They got our streets, tried to tell ya/It’s already been done/Ammunition overflowin'/Tears fillin’ up a pond/AC blowin’ like it's snowin'/I know I'm bliss, I speak in tongues/My words touch a nigga soul/They get you through it, overcome"
"Codeine floodin' Atlanta, bitch ass niggas with hammers/Bitch ass niggas in Pampers, fuck around murk his mamma/My young niggas so playa, fuck around kill you in sandals/I was on some cool shit now they want to have it/King Jaffe Jo, my body wrapped in gold/Money stackin' tall, now I think I'm seein' ghosts"
"I came here to purchase, I ain't worried 'bout a ticket/Bitch you want that G-Wagon, go muthafuckin' get it/I had on my ski mask in the muthafuckin' trenches/Homie Blood talkin', is you muthafuckin' Crippin'?"
"Massage in My Room"Future
"Pay my dawg a Perc, it made him happy/Put you in a hearse like an assassin/Runnin' through the game with some lettuce/I just want the green like Aladdin/She kept it low-key, I was straddlin'/I gave her more wood than a cabin"
"Massage in My Room"Future
"Twenty freaks at the embassy/I just pissed on a hundred Gs/Ace of Spades when the lights off/Wrist movin' like CB/Bought the Lamb' for the energy/Got your main at Top Golf"
"I came out the mud, I'm stashin' the drugs/Gotta bring out the tub of Ace/I was never in love with the Wraith/Got a new Panorama on the way/Went to Pluto, beyond with my cape/Can't run when the drum in your face/I'm the mothafuckin' don, why you hatin'?"
"Came out the sewer, it's stankin'/Go in the booth and I'm blankin'/Slept with my tool on the blanket/Like I'm the son of Michael/All of these haters, they're gettin' spiteful/They see my heart has been damaged/You see the whip Panoramic/You see I made it, you witnessed progression/I was talkin' like I knew I was destined"
"Give your life for this gang, gang shit/Pay a price for this gang, gang shit/The sheriff wanna remain nameless/Tryna be Instagram famous/Knowin' damn well these streets painless"
"Turn around the positivity/When you servin' for an activity/Better learn about the history/I was touchin' work in elementary/Started cookin' work and skippin' chemistry/Then I started speakin' poetry/I just wish my dawg didn't ignore me/Told you"
