7 Songs, 20 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Since at least the days of Future's Monster mixtape, his fans have feared that the self-destructive tendencies he rapped about would be his undoing. Myth-making or not, his catalog is steeped in a brand of nihilism so reckless that some of the fun of listening stems from anticipating just what he might say next. The answer this go-round, though, is a request for help. Or maybe just an acknowledgment of his issues.

SAVE ME, the seven-song EP that follows Future’s last full-length (January 2019’s The WIZRD), is a tallying of the MC’s misdeeds but less a formal apology than an extended moment of vulnerability. He details his issues with substance abuse on “XanaX Damage,” and then womanizing on “St. Lucia” and “Government Official.” He confesses a seemingly insatiable ego on “Please Tell Me,” but makes time to detail just how good a potential lover would have it riding with him on “Shotgun.” He’s distorted his voice on closer “Love Thy Enemies” in a way that makes it sound like he’s rapping from the center of a codeine haze, but the detail with which he recounts the intricacies of a failed relationship seems like it could have only come from a sober mind.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

R&B Rapper except cant even sing! Trash!

Feel sorry for this generation. Almost all rappers sound like this now and still don’t get it. Can’t sing so uses auto tunes and sounds like 💩! If want to call yourself a rapper than rap! Garbage! Please quit making music. It’s awful.
