The man behind DS2 receives kudos from the hip-hop world and beyond...
Future is on top of the world right now with DS2 [A1/Freebandz/Epic] becoming the #1 album in the country. He shut down the streets in Los Angeles last week, and he's formally risen to the status of rap royalty. He earned it the old fashioned way too, taking over the underground one anthem at a time and releasing the year's best rap album DS2 solidifying his grip on the mainstream. Now that he's on top, his reign has only just started, and Future Hendrix's music stands poised to be remembered as timeless. So, in this exclusive feature, we talked to everybody from Waka Flame and Juicy J to Juvenile and Courtney Lee of The Memphis Grizzlies about Future. Here's what they had to say.
What can you say about Future?
Waka Flocka Flame
Waka Flocka Flame: Future's awesome. I'm not going to lie, it's fun being in the studio with my boy. That's the vision. I can f*** with Future. We're just compatible. His friends are my friends. It's weird, and it's great. I love DS2.
Juvenile: With the younger generation, Future's pushing the envelope. He's a great artist, and I was excited to work with him. I look forward to doing it again.
Juicy J: I really like what he does. Future makes that trippy music, as I like to describe it, man. He does it very well too—for real. "Ice" came out dope when we did that.
Courtney Lee of The Memphis Grizzlies
Courtney Lee: Future is amazing! We would bump his stuff to get pumped up before games. It's really high energy. He's so different, and he brought something special to the game. I'm a fan for sure.
