When it comes to Future I have to really make a conscious effort to not mix my opinions of his personal life with the music, so here goes.
Both images were sourced from spotify.
Last month he released not one, but two albums in the space of a week. It was later revealed his motives behind it were to set a world record of having two albums at the number 1 and 2 spot at the same time. I think it was a clever idea and I’m not entirely sure if he succeeded or not. His albums were called “Future” and “Hndrxx” which are both names he goes by.
Each album has it’s own sound with Future being the more hyped up music that will gas you on a night out whereas Hendrix is more emotional and heartfelt. Not sure if either are his best work but there is something for everyone which is always nice. I would say though, that Hendrix is my favorite of the two.
I really enjoy when rappers show their softer more vulnerable side. Hip Hop in general is all about hyper-masculinity which is a social norm I don’t partake in. whenever I see a man who portrays himself as an alpha male take a step back to show emotion I am obsessed with it. Personally I think he thought Ciara would wait for him to get his act together and when she moved on he was in his feeling and wrote an album emoting that.
Anyway, musically and artistically Future never fails to deliver. I am a fan of his Artistry (and his face not gonna lie) but not a huge fan of him personally. But hey I’ll let you all judge for yourself.
