As noted in our Real Hottest MCs in the Game list, Future has "shoved hip-hop into the eye of a storm of melodramatic love and longing." As unlikely as it seems, even when the Atlanta Auto-Tuner sing-raps about how he's "never made love," what's meant to be a stubbornly masochistic boast winds up sounding like a heartbroken admission of one guy's inability to truly connect with his in-bed sparring partners. New song "No Love" is certainly helped along by the left-field xylophone hits and New Age atmospherics that enhance all of that computerized vocal melancholy.
But if Future can't fall for a woman, what is he truly connecting with these days? As he recently told SPIN, "Right now I just love the studio. I go on vacation, I have to have a studio, or make sure one is close by. I don't like going nowhere if it don't have a studio. I love it that much. That's what I do. I wanna make sure I do it forever. Every day."
Future is currently prepping his second album, Future Hendrix
