Future Teases A Promising Dark Banger

With a new Lil Uzi Vert collaboration album on the way, Future continues to steadily tease some new solo music.

Future never stops working. This year, he’s already given the game another solo album in High Off Life, a project that features one of 2020’s definitive anthems in “Life Is Good.” Not to mention the fact that he’s got another collaborative project in the works with Lil Uzi Vert, presumably set to drop at some point later this year. Even with that on his plate, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Future steadily amassing another solo album behind the scenes, if only to keep his prolific streak alive.

Today, Our Generation Music captured a new snippet (it actually serves as a two-for-one special) that Future shared on his Instagram story. While the opening moments find Future in his melodic bag, a beat switch quickly shifts gears into banger territory. While the quality makes it difficult to clearly discern the lyrics, the overall vibe isn’t too far removed from what we saw on The WIZRD, which is to say darker production and cold, calculated flows.

Though it’s unclear as to what he’s keeping this one for — it could be, for all we know, a song from the upcoming Uzi tape — it does seem likely that Future is already building his High Off Life followup. Especially given that he recently showcased “Gucci Bucket Hat,” a teaser that has already developed quite the cult following. Check out this latest now, and sound off — are you excited for some new Future?

Lil Uzi Vert Teases New Music In His Own Special Way

Lil Uzi Vert is in the studio right now but he wants you to remember that he’s just a “regular” dude.

If you ask Lil Uzi Vert, nothing separates him from you and me. In reality, several million dollars, multi-platinum records, the latest designer fashion collections, and more divide him from the regular folk. Still, he wants you to know that, despite his status as one of the world’s leading recording artists, he’s just a regular guy.

Just before 9 AM, the Philadelphia-raised rapper took to Twitter to update us all on his day, saying that he was in the studio making music before reminding us that his career doesn’t define him.

 

 

“Im making music right now,” wrote Uzi, adding a bunch of emojis to keep the tone right. “But I’m still a regular n***a remember that.”

Do you think he’s working on the long-rumored collaborative tape with Future? Or is he putting in time on his official Eternal Atake follow-up? Either way, his fans are amped up and they want more information, begging for any hints as to what he’s coming with next.

Most recently, Lil Uzi Vert was featured on Lil Tecca’s album Virgo World, which featured the song “Dolly”. The track originally belonged to Uzi but, after it leaked, he seemingly passed it to Tecca and stayed on as a collaborator.

What do you want to see from Uzi next?

For hip-hop fans, the BET Hip-Hop Awards hold a special place in our hearts. The performances are always on point and the awards celebrate all of the artists we’ve fallen in love with over the last year.

This year, the circumstances are different. We’re still in the midst of a serious global pandemic. The show must go on though and, while parts of the ceremony will certainly be held virtually, it’s still nice to see our favorite stars get crowned.

The nominations have arrived for the upcoming 2020 show, with DaBaby and Roddy Ricch leading the way with 12 and 11 nominations apiece. Right behind them are Drake and Megan Thee Stallion, who both secured 8 nods.

HotNewHipHop also earned a nomination for Best Hip-Hop Platform, running against Complex, The Shade Room, XXL, HipHopDX, The Breakfast Club, and The Joe Budden Podcast.

21 Savage & Metro Boomin Announce “Savage Mode 2”, Fans Couldn’t Be More Ready

The major announcement from 21 Savage and Metro Boomin has fans jumping out of their seats in excitement.

Finally, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin have announced the release of their long-awaited project Savage Mode 2, a follow-up of their critically-acclaimed Savage Mode. The announcement was made with a cinematic new trailer, which has Morgan Freeman as a narrator.

“Savage is defined as fierce. Beastly and untamed. Mode is defined as a way of operating or using the system,” says the legendary actor. “So to be in Savage Mode is to go hard without anything to stop or deter you from your mission. Basically, this means when someone is in Savage Mode, they are not to be fucked with.”

The album will be released on October 2.

 

 

It has received a bunch of praise already from fans, who are incredibly impressed with Morgan Freeman’s voiceover and the lengths at which Savage and Boomin went to deliver this trailer.

After petitions were created to pressure the rapper-producer duo to drop the new body of work, they finally listened, hunkering down and getting it ready for public consumption. Thankfully, we don’t have too long to wait for it either.

All over social media, you’ll see rap fans going absolutely crazy over the news. This has been one of the projects that hip-hop aficionados have waited patiently for since the beginning of the year, so to finally hear that it’s arriving is surreal.

What are you expecting out of Savage Mode 2?

Justin Timberlake & Timbaland Have Reunited

Following a sly “Futuresex/Lovesounds 2” tease back in August, Justin Timberlake has once again reunited with Timbaland in the studio.

In September of 2006, Justin Timberlake and Timbaland connected to craft Futuresex/Lovesounds, an album that many have come to praise as a modern-day pop classic. And while they never quite recaptured that lightning-in-a-bottle on subsequent effort The 20/20 Experience, the project still served as an effective showcase of Timberlake and Timbaland’s effortless creative chemistry. And while Timbo wasn’t quite so involved in Timberlake’s 2018 album Man Of The Woods, the pair have been recently teasing some new music to come.

In fact, Timbaland recently went so far as to tease a possible FutureSex/LoveSounds 2 back in August; given the appreciation many hold for the first installment, the sly announcement was met with cautious optimism. Of course, sequels can be a gamble in the best of times, seldom living up to the preceding chapter. Given the stylistic departure Timberlake explored on Man Of The Woods, however, there exists plenty of space for the newly reunited pair to get creative.

And that’s exactly what they appear to be doing. Today, Timberlake shared an update on Twitter revealing that he and Timbo are indeed in the studio, listening back to a promising guitar-driven instrumental. “Back together again,” captions JT, though he doesn’t provide a release date. Either way, the song they seem to be working for seems like an interesting direction for Timbo and Timberlake to explore — check it out below.
