Future releases his Official Mixtape True Story, Hosted by The Empire. The 17-track tape has Features from Rocko, Shawty Lo, Waka Flocka, Scooter, Skool Boy and more. Production is handled by Nard & B, DJ Spinz, Will A Fool, K.E. On The Track, Sonny Digital and more. This mixtape contains his hit street record, “Tony Montana.”
Future’s January 2011 mixtape Dirty Sprite might’ve boasted some of the rapper’s budding repertoire of hits, including YC‘s “Racks“, but it was True Story that found the Atlanta rapper scaling out to be a national name. This is largely due to hits like “Tony Montana” and “Magic“.
“I had to paint the picture of the whole movie: If you never seen Tony Montana, go look at the movie ‘Scarface.’ The beat was sounding crazy when I heard the beat. It sounded like New York when I heard it. It sounded very grimy, gutter, but at the same time it was a vicious track — it had that pound. I had to approach it that way when I wrote the song, so I thought about scenes from the movie, all the highlight scenes from Tony Montana from when he first came to America and they wouldn’t even let him over — his anger — trying to get that vibe and get that energy.”
“The mixtape True Story,everything on it from the beginning to the end is based on a very true story, and I just wanted to go in and paint the picture for the streets,” said Future. ”I wanted every track on there to sound as close to my life, I want you to be able to listen to the mixtape and understand Future.”
On True Story, Future puts his pen on full display, crafting catchy hooks over dirty southern bounce beats. The results are enjoyable, the subject matter varied. There’s the strip-club inspired “Magic” and the hustler’s ode, “Tony Montana“. On “Long Time Coming“, Future gets nostalgic and writes a letter to a lost love. Waka Flocka Flame and Scooter assist on the lighthearted “Annoying“, and Shawty Lo helps out on the lost-homey dedication “Bigger Picture“. The future is hard to predict, but the mixtape scene down South has long been a crystal ball of sorts when it comes to gauging new rap talent. And if his street buzz is any indication, Atlanta representative Future has plenty of bright days ahead. Follow on Twitter @1future @MedievalBeatz Buy Rap Beats Online
