EDITORS’ NOTES

The star power of the guests on Future's second album—Kanye, Drake, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, and André 3000, among others—speaks to the near-insurmountable heights the Atlanta rapper has reached since his 2012 debut, Pluto. That he shows them all up explains how he got there. Take "I Won," a solemn beat over which Kanye and Future exult their "trophy" wives. Where 'Ye rifles off shallow boasts, Future's verses are sincere, almost touching. On the sprightly surprise standout "Benz Friendz," Future's ATL bro André 3000 dances around the whimsical beats like a peacock, but it's Future's husky baritone that brings the party. Dominated by Mike WiLL Made It's 16-ton production (tracks like "My Momma" and "Honest" lumber like they're dragging chains), Honest demolishes the line between hip-hop and R&B. Its Auto-Tune hooks, rat-a-tat verses, and confessional lyrics exemplify the best of both genres in 2014.

Original and forward thinking

Rap lyrics and rhythms need to evolve in order to keep audiences listening. I think Future brings at least that much to the table. We have come so far from Run DMC, and this album is an excellent example of today's hip hop. How long Move that Dope will survive in the minds of listeners is impossible to forecast, but I'm optimistic it will continue to succeed, perhaps through the end of the summer. Good job folks.
