Future Bangers

Since rising to fame with a scene-stealing guest spot on YC’s 2011 hit “Racks,” Future has established himself as one of Atlanta’s most consistent hitmakers. Capable of both crooning bittersweet melodies in AutoTune and shouting himself hoarse on hedonistic club bangers, his range has helped make him a hook factory who can write a tender ballad for Rihanna as well as anchor an Ace Hood anthem. But as much as he shines on collaborations, including frequent team ups with Drake, Future’s increasingly prolific output of solo albums and mixtapes have found him plunging into his own dark world of heartbreak, intoxication, and surviving the trap. Establishing a rapport with a circle of talented producers including Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Mike WiLL Made It, and Southside, Future toys with increasingly inventive cadences and flows to match his gift for choruses, pushing him to new creative and commercial heights.
