Shocker - Future is back in the studio cooking that good crack. Any fan of the ATLien knows he basically lives in the lab, making music around the clock and handpicking the best of the best with help from producers like Metro Boomin, TM88, Southside, DJ Spinz, and many others. Earlier tonight (March 21), he hit Snapchat to post a couple previews of some shit in the studio. You can hear one snippet up top and another below.

Not everyone has studied Future's ways, so here's a little primer: he often stays in the studio for long periods of time, freestyling over whatever beats he likes. Often times he'll go back with an engineer or producer and chop up the best bars from an extended session into one or two verses to make a song. It's a fascinating method, and one that's working well. This past February, EVOL became his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in seven months. The hustle don't stop.

These days, Future's been on the road with Ty Dolla Sign for the Purple Reign tour, and on Friday (March 25) he'll make his final stop at House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach. By the end of the month, he'll have already dropped two projects and wrapped up a tour. Drugs be damned.

So what's next for Future? Only time will tell. Judging by the pace of his output, we could be getting another mixtape in a matter of months, but if Nayvadius is feeling generous he might take his foot off the competition's neck for a bit. Gotta let 'em breath, right?
