Future’s crackling bullfrog croon has always balanced sweet and sour, but there’s not a shred of that sensitivity left on his juggernaut new track, “Covered N Money.” The pseudo-sensitive type we heard on “Neva End,” Rihanna’s “Loveeee,” and the weird-as-hell “Real and True” with Miley has been eaten alive by this new Future, a guy we’ll probably see a lot more of on Honest. This is Future in Beast Mode.
Listen to “Covered N Money” here.
He takes down his industry, his peers, and even his women on this track, shunning anything that could threaten his money. The beat gallops across a nasty southern trap tune that sounds like the darkest tracks on Kevin Gates’ The Luca Brasi Story, as he dishes out flow at breakneck speed- something we didn’t know Future could do. If this is any indication of the direction he’s taking on Honest, we’re excited for the dark Future ahead.
