Future f/ Nicki Minaj “Rock Star”

“Rock Star” is an unreleased cut from Future‘s Honest album that didn’t make it due to sample clearance issues. The sample in question is George Michael’s “Careless Whisper”, which DJ Clue inserted into his production here. Nicki just has one guest verse — the intro — but the highlight of this track to me is Future’s melodic hook. One of his better, smoother ones IMHO.

Song since removed.

Future f/ Kanye West “I Won”

Sexy Ciara & Kim K lookalikes accompany Future & Kanye on the beach in the Hype Williams directed video for Honest‘s newest single. Just in time for the album’s release next Tuesday.

Outside of the ladies, I dig the color palette Hype chose for the video, but I wasn’t feeling the font at the beginning. I wasn’t expecting something super in-depth for the video, given the odes to their significant others being the focus of the song. I did chuckle at the idea of Future and Kanye rapping by themselves on the beach though.

Future ‘Honest’ [Album Stream]

Future‘s new album, Honest, is finally on the way next week April 22nd. And as it usually does around the week before its release, you can hear the album below. I skipped ahead to the Drake collab “Never Satisfied”, which found Drizzy singing on not being satisfied in the ladies department and Future singing/rapping on not being satisfied with his money. It sounds tailor made for the masses, but also faded out a little sooner than I expected. So I’m skeptical that it was the full track, but nevertheless, the official stream is below. Enjoy!
