Drake & Future - What A Time To Be Alive
Keine Bewertungen

What a time to be alive — and being "alive," as Future and Drake define it, involves having way too many feelings about way too many strippers for way too many sleepless nights. Their surprise mixtape collabo is shrewdly timed, since both MCs are on a creative roll after dropping two of the year's biggest and best albums. It's a quickie and it sounds that way: a six-day digital dash in the studio. Yet that's why it feels fresh and spontaneous. This is the sound of Future's Dirty South meeting Drake's Great White North, both artists playing off their louder-than-life personalities without overthinking the details. 

Future dominates the chemistry, with his producer Metro Boomin behind most of the tracks. Yet both guys get confessional about the struggle. Drake complains about groupies spending too long on their phones, while Future describes that feeling when you mix Adderalls and Percocets in the club, then wonder why you can't get your mind right. The mixtape ends with two solo cuts, Future's "Jersey" and Drake's "30 For 30 Freestyle." Somehow, Drake still sounds like a crafty pop aesthete when he's trying to pick up on Future's spaced-out lunacy. The highlight: "Plastic Bag," a gallant tribute to the stripper who just scooped their hearts off the floor, in the same plastic bag where she stashes their loot.
