Over the weekend, Future also released a mixtape titled Purple Reign. The release follows a very successful era for the rapper who dropped four projects (Beast Mode, 56 Nights, Dirty Sprite 2 and What A Time To Be Alive) in 2015. Purple Reign adds to the most recent wave of trap/turn-up music that Future has greatly influenced in the most recent years. However, fans have noted that the rapper took it back to his roots, specifically 2012’s Monster, with sounds and production from DJ Esco and Metro Boomin. Some of my favorite tracks from the mixtape include, “Wicked”, where Future provides enough energy to light-up any night out, “Inside The Mattress”, where Future professes his love for drugs and “Run Up”, another club-ready track with a bouncy production. Overall, Future is a turnt-up artist who cannot be stopped! Critics will note Future’s ability to impact culture while giving fans exactly what they want! What do you think? Let’s check out a few things we learned from Future’s Purple Reign below!
