Future – EVOL

Future - EVOL

In 2016 a recording artist cannot rest. Your new material can quickly becomes yesterday’s forgotten material. The pace makes swaths of music feel disposable. Last night I wrote about Young Thug’s I’m Up mixtape and Wiz Khalifa’s Khalifa LP leading this weekend’s releases. So Future sitting with position raised the stakes by releasing EVOL for purchase one day later. And marketing plan was already in play as DJ Khaled promised to play EVOL during his new Beats 1 Radio show premiere.

Future and his cohort producers Metro Boomin, DJ Esco, Southside (I’m assuming… liner notes would help). Look you know and I know that Future has refined his flow in this mellifluous cadence. Outside of The Weeknd on “Low Life,” there are no features to muck up the zone your mind enters. Because unlike the uneven releases by the aforementioned artists, Future creates a cohesive, tightly sequenced album. Once Abel’s tenor cuts through “Low Life,” you’re now 9 tracks in wondering why your shoulders are sore.

But the highlight is the album’s finale. “Fly Shit Only” opens with a guitar solo before the drums crash down on the melody. This is Future’s stab at stadium status plying deeper in the perverted and paranoid mind of Nayvadius.

EVOL is available on iTunes and Apple Music. I guess I could link something here, but all the YouTube links are bullshit sped up/slowed down fuckboi quality.

I know. Here is the most ridiculous hook on EVOL courtesy of Future on “Xanny Family.” An instant hip hop quotable (and trending topic) for all the wrong reasons.

3 exotic broads and I got 'em soakin' panties<br> Told 'em they were certified, welcome to the xanny family<br> Wow, wow<br> Wow, wow<br> 3 exotic broads and I got 'em soakin' panties<br> Told 'em they were certified, welcome to the xanny family<br> Wow, wow<br> Wow, wow
