Monster / 56 Nights / Beast Mode / Dirty Sprite 2 / What a Time to be Alive

VS

Barter 6 / Slime Season / Slime Season 2

Rich Gang just missed the cut

Spottie, Monday, 2 November 2015 16:29 (five years ago) link

Future's run is flawless, What A Time to Be Alive spoils it a little

But that Monster to Dirty Sprite 2 run is legendary.

it is a little hard to argue w/ future here

marcos, Monday, 2 November 2015 16:37 (five years ago) link

What A Time to Be Alive spoils it a little

yea it is a weird pairing i don't see any clear, like, musical reasons for future wanting to pair up w/ drake

marcos, Monday, 2 November 2015 16:43 (five years ago) link

i like young thug more as an artist but future's having a better run so i vote future

either way if this is the only rap music u listen to F.U. imo

oh for sure, none of these are even my favourite rap albums/tapes of 2k15, but they seem very comparable to each other

lex pretend, Monday, 2 November 2015 17:48 (five years ago) link

Yeah. There's Migos too.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Monday, 2 November 2015 18:09 (five years ago) link

if this included Tha Tour Pt 1 it'd be Thug easy but as is, it's prob Future.

some dude, Monday, 2 November 2015 18:19 (five years ago) link

Going with Thug. His highs are higher this year.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Monday, 2 November 2015 18:21 (five years ago) link

Interesting b/c for all the similarities, they seem to be on divergent paths right now. Thug's output is so wide-ranging and expansive, while Future's narrowed his sound down to something powerful but monochromatic. I'd probably vote Thug based on his capacity to surprise.

Evan R, Monday, 2 November 2015 18:26 (five years ago) link

Really to me it comes down to song construction, and future has made more classic songs in his recent run than thug, imo

People are still giving props to rappers for churning out a lot of material w/out considering that not every thug song (or future song for that matter) is worth their time and it might seem like it's elevating the artists but really it's grading them on a curve that ends up downplaying the great shit and overplaying the filler

you could do a lot worse than listening to these two. i listened to ds2 almost exclusively for all of sep-oct

interesting, imo thug is also converging towards something

i love the pure texture of future's voice (prob top 5 human voice timbre of all time) but i like the things thug does with his voice more..?

flopson, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:05 (five years ago) link

lex + deej who are ur fav rappers this year?

tpp, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:08 (five years ago) link

xp yeah totally agree with that. Everything that comes out of Future's voice just naturally sounds good; you definitely can't say the same for Thug.

But Thug pushes his voice more

Evan R, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:09 (five years ago) link

imo thug is also converging towards something

yea ss2 made me think about this a little more

thug the most vocally angelic rapper in the game ever gtfoh

tpp, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:11 (five years ago) link

i love thugs voice dgmw im just saying like, i could listen to future read a dictionary & i'd be like ♪(]^_^[)♪

flopson, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:16 (five years ago) link

also many xps but idk if a future/thug tape would work out, it'd have to be super focused and deliberate vibe, not sure if a haphazardly thrown together tape would work out well w/ these guys? maybe i'm wrong -- i think i read some producer (metro boomin maybe) saying they really work very similarly, very fast, very spontaneous in the moment

yea, agree w/ flopson, thug has some really astonishing highs but there are plenty of tracks where i just really don't like his voice, plenty of thugger tracks that are fucking annoying

marcos, Monday, 2 November 2015 21:28 (five years ago) link

At least I notice when I hear one of his tracks tho, March Madness aside everything I've heard from Future might as well've been white noise

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 November 2015 07:52 (five years ago) link

this is so hard. a few months ago i'd have def said YT but I've been getting into Future a lot more recently and not so much Barter 6

canoon fooder (dog latin), Tuesday, 3 November 2015 12:19 (five years ago) link

oh last 12 months? Future then. But I haven't heard the Slimes

canoon fooder (dog latin), Tuesday, 3 November 2015 12:19 (five years ago) link

i like young thug more as an artist but future's having a better run so i vote future

Agree with this. I didn't think Future had an album like DS2 in him anymore.

The burrito of ennui (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 3 November 2015 14:27 (five years ago) link

both artists are better than they've ever been for me - i was very surprised that i fell as hard for future's output as i have this year, harder than i ever did before (i went back to the pre-DS2 mixtapes and they're all amazing), and i was very surprised that i finally clicked with thug with the slime seasons and "pacifier" having previously found him pretty unlistenable

i wouldn't say i'm enraptured with the timbre of either's voice but something about the production choices and songwriting frames them better for me now

lex pretend, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 15:12 (five years ago) link

fyi you were also wrong about chief keef, who's had an alright year if not as strong as his 2014 in my eyes

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 3 November 2015 15:14 (five years ago) link

future's been more consistent but i love barter 6 the most out of all the tapes. so uh thug

i don't think i was wrong, i just like the new stuff more than the old stuff

i liked bang 3 in a non-coommittal sort of way

on the subject of chicago rappers i can't believe no one's repping harder for nutty world 2, fire from start to finish

lex pretend, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 15:26 (five years ago) link

(is what a time to be alive remotely essential despite being a drake hater? i have no motivation to listen to it)

lex pretend, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 15:27 (five years ago) link

lex there are some really good future tracks on it that are very much in the same vein as the rest of his work from this year, drake isn't even on every song

marcos, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 15:39 (five years ago) link

after many tries (1017 Thug, Black Portland, Tha Tour Pt. 1 and mostly lagoon's Straye Thugs comp), i still don't "get" YT. i just can't get motivated to bother w/ Barter or the Slimes

alpine static, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 17:19 (five years ago) link

too bad dude barter & both slimes are way better than than the older mixtapes though i guess if you can't find something to love in those than there's no use in trying the newer stuff

marcos, Tuesday, 3 November 2015 17:21 (five years ago) link

nah i still can't find much to love in the older mixtapes, the new ones are a huge step up

SS1 has terrific use of pianos

they're really not a huge step up from the rich gang tape you're just having trouble backtracking entirely

both intensely overrated at this point but the first few songs on this are pretty tyte

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Saturday, 21 October 2017 11:16 (three years ago) link

the contrast of their flows is p funny; future just workmanlike chugging through every permutation of the same 3 flows and words for drugs then thugger sounding like he's perpetually making every line up on the spot

flopson, Saturday, 21 October 2017 17:08 (three years ago) link

good descrip

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Saturday, 21 October 2017 22:01 (three years ago) link

it's alright, kinda throwaway, nice to have yt to take the pressure off relentless futurism, disappointing to have so many half-finished-sounding beats though

it must get boring to just rap about pills and drinking and fucking so much

j., Monday, 23 October 2017 04:11 (three years ago) link

try living it man. what a bummer

Shat Parp (dog latin), Monday, 23 October 2017 07:47 (three years ago) link

i like this mostly because these are two guys i like but find wearisome over the course of a whole album and it's nice to have them share the load

future's voice sounds really rough on a couple of tracks, i hope that dude is ok

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 24 October 2017 14:59 (three years ago) link

one month passes...

This bangs imo. Does get a little tired toward the end but you can only keep up that kind of intensity for so long on a record. I like the sonic consistency throughout, like a single ever-evolving song.

IF (Terrorist) Yes, Explain (man alive), Monday, 11 December 2017 17:05 (three years ago) link

fwiw I like the "half-finished beats" feel of it in combination with Thug's vocal style, has a loose, almost going off the rails feel to it.

Joan Digimon (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 19 December 2017 16:13 (three years ago) link

You would probably be able to afford one just googling the lyrics of this album

IF (Terrorist) Yes, Explain (man alive), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 15:53 (three years ago) link

Calling a watch "water" is so oblique and wonderful imo. No idea whether that's original to future.

IF (Terrorist) Yes, Explain (man alive), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 15:59 (three years ago) link

surely it refers to a waterproof watch

Cardi Acs (imago), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 16:01 (three years ago) link

(•̪●) (carne asada), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 17:17 (three years ago) link

normally I feel that way but this mixtape takes it to such excess that it becomes elevated, and the future-styled autotuned vocals give it a bittersweet undertone.

IF (Terrorist) Yes, Explain (man alive), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 18:58 (three years ago) link

it's kinda funny i feel like future has such a blank affect that people project so much sorrow and all this existential stuff onto a guy that mostly just raps about expensive shit and doing drugs and having sex

Joan Digimon (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 20 December 2017 19:27 (three years ago) link

But Without Warning is better than both.

Frederik B, Thursday, 28 December 2017 19:15 (three years ago) link

Listened to it today, and Real Love sounded like such a sad sequel to Turn On the Lights. Something about the autotuned Future voice in the background.

Mask off being his biggest hit is a bizarre blip of timing w the advent of streaming and the strength of meme novelty, def not his biggest record in real world sense

xheugy eddy (D-40), Thursday, 16 September 2021 17:36 (two days ago) link

it doesnt though..that song didn't get more club play or whatever. its like saying "thank you next" by ariana grande is bigger than "vogue" by madonna, or that certified lover boy is bigger than thriller. get real

xheugy eddy (D-40), Thursday, 16 September 2021 19:42 (two days ago) link

if you see future live, it def feels like “march madness” is his biggest track, but i do think “mask off” is likely the future song a casual music fan is likely to know

grove street (party) direction (voodoo chili), Thursday, 16 September 2021 19:56 (two days ago) link
