Future Claims Artists Are Trying To Imitate His Release Date
In advance of the release of his new album, I Never Liked You, Future claims that too many musicians are attempting to release new music at the same time as him. Future made the accusation earlier this week on Twitter.
“Everybody wanna drop when I drop,” he wrote.
While the Atlanta rapper didn’t mention names, a handful of artists have albums coming out on April 29th. Cocodrillo Turbo by Action Bronson, Blue Water Road by Kehlani, Mahal by Toro y Moi, Faye Webster’s Car Therapy Sessions EP, and more will be available later this week. Apart from this Friday, Pusha T released It’s Almost Dry on April 22 and Black Star is releasing No Fear of Time on May 3.
I Never Liked You features Kanye West, FKA Twigs, Babyface Ray, and other artists, though Future hasn’t revealed a tracklist. The rapper wears a purple silk-like suit with a matching sleep mask on the album’s cover art. On Valentine’s Day of this year, Future released the single “Worst Day.”
Future’s new album arrives days after GQ named him the “greatest rapper alive” in a new profile.
“I’m putting myself out there,” Future said of his new album. “Sharing my lifestyle with the world. Sharing my pain with the world. Sharing my ups, sharing my downs with the entire universe. I believe in the energy of the universe and manifestation. That’s why I’m giving myself, because I’m willing to correct myself. I don’t want to just…be wrong. I’m willing to give you all of me, so you can tell me how to build on me, and make me a better me.”
