Future Says Debut LP "Pluto" Will Contain "25% Rapping"

The "Tony Montana" rapper says fans can expect a lot less actual rapping on his debut LP "Pluto."

Billboard recently caught up with two of Atlanta's hottest up-and-coming solo acts, Future and 2 Chainz, to discuss their careers and upcoming projects. During the interview, Future talked about his impending debut project Pluto, which he says will be out this January 31. He explained that he's anticipating that Pluto will be one of those albums that forces people to sit down and really delve into the music because it's so far ahead of the curve.

"I've got Pluto going on at the top of the year [on] January 31. It was like, 'Man, let's go on and get that momentum...and drop the album and treat it like a mixtape,'" he said. "I feel like this music is really like an album that's going to have to sit on the shelf for a long time. For people to understand it, they're going to have to really sit down and understand and play it to get it. It's timeless music, it's music that you're going to be able to hear three years from now and be like, 'Oh that's what he was talking about.' I'm trying to be ahead of the curve, ahead of the time right now. You can't be in with the fads, you've got to be a trendsetter."

Future also discussed his unique use of melody and how it will play into the final outcome of his debut LP. He said that he's really trying to create a stadium-friendly sound with his music, and that only a quarter of the total songs on the album will actually find him rapping. He also added that none of the songs that made him a household name amongst rap fans like "Tony Montana" will be featured on the project.

"As far as the melodies that I'm using, I'm not even really rapping on all the songs. I've probably got about 25% rap [on the album]; the rest of the songs are just full of melody," he explained. "Astronaut music; I'm trying to make stadium music, music that you could put your lighters up to and people could walk away with [the feeling] like, 'Ay, I learned something, I feel different from [hearing] this song.' Music that symbolizes change...no track that's out right now are going to be on my album, because they're already out and I want to give people something new. They always want something new."

    This is the level that you clown ass kids have allowed rap to stoop too. When you worship the most horrible collection of rap artists in the history of hiphop, what do you expect to happen? Your top icon is a syrup drinking, girl pants wearing, man kissing homo who couldn't sell a record in any generation except yours! Thats cause kids these days are so programmable that all a person has to say is "I'm the best rapper alive" and clowns run with it.

    Wtf. Another Drake Hell naw. See niggas like this is whats wrong with hip hop. Niggas who ain't rappers, just appear to be rappers. But he'll sell because the kids love this bullshit. And he's connected with dumb money ym. This would and should be unacceptable to many but these Lil niggas let Lil Wayne tell them the shits cool. And well niggas is followers not leaders

    Alotta people look up to Nostrodamus for all of his predictions but people really need to give the Roots more credit for their psychic powers. They talked about the clones, copycats and ignorance years ago but now thats the only thing in hip hop.

    "He also added that none of the songs that made him a household name amongst rap fans like "Tony Montana" will be featured on the project." First of all, Not even close to a household name. Second of all none of the SONGS? Don't you mean the ONLY song?? Then... "I'm trying to be ahead of the curve, ahead of the time right now. You can't be in with the fads, you've got to be a trendsetter." Wait, what makes this dude ahead of the curve tho? Is it the terribly cliche beat? Or the God-awful cadence?

  • Atl2Trill

    I'm from Atl and thinks Future is super garbage. IDK how people listen to his shitty music. Plus he's not a rapper if the album is 25% rapping. Just another gimmick ass artist with no talent.
