I think it’s no coincidence that Future went on a Twitter rant accusing countless ‘young’ rappers of biting his style right around the time of his latest release, BEASTMODE 2. At this point it’s not even a question of if Future will drop a new project, but of when. His output has been prolific to say the least, and while there’s been a lot of high points, his quality has dropped off recently. If you’ve ever heard a Future track before than you know exactly what to expect from BEASTMODE 2 – his subject matter, flow, and delivery are the same as the days of Monster and the production is all familiar territory. Albeit, it is more compelling than his last couple of projects. Zaytoven has been on a comeback of sorts and he came with some of his best production in recent memory. It’s far from his best tape but it’s still high quality mindless music that you can vibe and turn up too. If you’re not expecting anything different from Future, then BEASTMODE 2 is right up your alley.
It’s a good listen (Drake doesn’t put out bad listens), but there’s a whole lot that I like on 'Scorpion' but almost nothing I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever skipped through a Drake project as much as I have here. There’s still quotables for days but you gotta get through a lot of uninspired filler to get to it.
My Cinderella, I’m keeping’ her spoiled Danced with the Devil so hard to avoid Hand on the chrome, don’t you never ignore it I left some behind, they didn’t leave me no choice People get to me, can’t tell I don’t show it Shit gettin’ brutal, gon handle it with force
