At times tasteful and other times tasteless, "Pluto" demonstrates a bravado that knows no shame.

Hip Hop has had its fair share of novelty acts, and Future appears to be the latest flavor to emerge into the public eye. Born and bred in Decatur, Georgia, the rapper has developed a penchant for transparent lyricism, and his debut album Pluto carries out this theme.

While Auto-Tune is heard all over the Drake-assisted single “Tony Montana,” it isn’t necessarily a crutch for Future, with use of the voice modifying application primarily assigned for hook purposes. However, in the instances in which he does incorporate it into his verses, the results are just a few shades away from absurd. Searching for his space-age counterpart, “Astronaut Chick” comes off as a discordant performance of elementary rhymes and stale metaphors. “Turn On The Lights” shares similar sentiment, with his voice becoming inaudible throughout the record. Add in a puzzling dedication to Pimp C (“Long Live The Pimp”) and a self-congratulatory record (“You Deserve It”), and one may surmise that Future is in fact from Pluto, because clearly his thoughts are not on a human level.

Things hit rock bottom on “Magic,” where Future’s plethora of nonsensical rhymes would get the side eye from the worst weed-carrying rapper:

“Excuse me but my lingo crazy / See these diamonds, ain’t none of them fuggazi / Two bad bitches want to fuck me the greatest / Aye young G in a brand new Mercedes / Turn out the lot, I’mma do a 180 / For the haters I’mma go ahead and do a 360 / Drinking on the Sprite, got lean all in it / I’m an astronaut nigga, better trust my pimpin’.”

Even with its many, many missteps, there are a few positives to take away from Pluto. Whether it’s the hard body beat of “Same Damn Time” or the hazy glow found on “I’m Trippin,” the album boasts an admirable selection of production courtesy of Mike Will, Nard & B and Sonny Digital. “Parachute,” “Homicide” and the aforementioned “I’m Trippin” also find success from the featured artists. In that respect, Future should get credit for possessing the often-overlooked ability of a chemistry radar, as well as a keen ear for beats.

At times tasteful and other times tasteless, Pluto demonstrates a bravado that knows no shame. Time will tell whether Future’s cheeky style is simply a passing faze or a trend that others will carry a torch for. Here’s to hoping few will.

    this guy is pretty much just making retard noises into autotune (something lil wayne did 4 years ago)over the same recycled beat

  • jd

    AutoTuned to death. Worst Rapper alive since the worst rapper retired...oh, wait, that's Rick Ross.

  • Daddy

    Future is just more new garbage on the pile of shit hip hop has become. A redundant and withering genre of music that once thrived off of competition and creativity. Future is the Down-syndrome love child of Lil Wayne and T-pain.... Hipsters are drawn to him and today's casual music listener and how can you blame them? They have have nothing else worthy of claiming as their own.....

  • cu ti

    This album talks money,bitches, trappin. And beautiful southern bass thumping beats. What more can you ask for in a gangsta rap album? This album is solid. Very enjoyable listen. Haters are idiots.

  • chris

    Love this album. Finally listened to it after it was released months ago lol. But I enjoyed it.

  • Chris Watson

    phantom club in Raleigh future had tha place turnt up!!!!!!! this album should be number one honestly but its his first young nigga goin hardddddddd

  • Nuboy

    This fool is absolutely and without a doubt indicative of the reason why I think God is pro-choice. No, seriously, did you actually LISTEN to this album? No, really, I'm being serious here. I think Vanilla Ice is refreshing compared to this because at least his songs made some sense and at least you didn't need subtitles just to understand what he was saying. This guy makes me want to take a screwdriver to my head to punish myself for even having the unfortunate convenience of even LISTENING to this nonsense in the first place. Future is like the booger hanging from your nose. Sure, flicking it away into obscurity seems like the logical choice but getting it with a paper cloth and discarding seems like the more reasonable decision. His rapping skills are about as relevant as a pile of finger nail clippings. He looks like a malnourished Predator from the movies, speaks a foreign language much like the aforementioned Predators and sounds like a dying space kitten thanks to the death of all hip-hop aka "Auto-Tune."

  • asher1985

    love this album! such an enjoyable listen, trust me...forget what this writer says, the album is awesome.

  • Mwoullard

    worst album ever. i cant even descibe it its so bad. WHAT DO PPL SEE IN FUTURE

  • GoGo Gadget

    It's funny how so many of these down South cats be defending their rappers, no matter how wack they are. I can see why they would defend Gucci Mane or 2Chainz, I like them both, or even Waka Flocka, but you cannot defend this sorryness. He cannot rhyme, has no structure in his songs; clearly he's from Pluto, cuz he aint from earth. That album was some of the worst, crappiest, shittiest, poorly written, poorly devised, cancerous, obnoxious piece of shit record I have ever had the mispleasure of hearing! (And believe me, I didnt know who this fool was until I listening to this for the first time, read the review, and thought he couldn't be this bad. Oh my God.

      no this is trash let it go

  • Studied Music & English

    people need to stop comparing these artists to "common" "talib" etc ( which i listen to )BUT They are N0T in the same lane or on the same intellectual plane , so of course Future wouldnt compare. He is def. N0T the best rapper , but Future made me a fan on " Streetz is Callin" mixtape where he put real shit in there . I think industry "dumbed" his music down more because he was a little better on the mixtapes than the Studio album ... & some of his " lingo " is street talk . Im not from the "hood" but certain things you can understand are from his city & the streets ... Back off ...

    hip hop started in the streets and will end there .. i like nas just like the next man but if im in the club or wit alot of ''young people'' meaning 90's babies im bangin future or 2 chainz ... i believe rap is to be judged off the feeling it makes not like an english paper .. he makes music that feels good to alot of people and some people who listen to it on they computer speakers by them selves in the aptartment will never understand what i mean . but this album goes hard ..ps.. talib is a great mc but its over for that breed of mc its about entertaining people remember ???

    nobody is fucking with common or de la soul like some of you lame niggas. georgia fucks with him. we support our artist, thats why georgia and the rest of the south run this music shit.

    • ANoNy012

      I agree with u Hell zel! I love Future & i do agree that we(the south) do have better music & other people who aren't from the south might disagree and think that they have better music where they're from and that's alright too because we probably think they have some pretty shitty music too. They might have artists who got better lyrics but we got artists who make songs that we can play in the club & get turned up to!

      hell zel is just another ignorant Southern nigga who thinks Southern hip-hop is the best. nigga kill yourself for all of that bullshit you just said.

    • hell zel


    • hell zel

      i never said the lyrics weren't good nor did i say i was giving him "the check" nor did my tone come off as if i think he was garbage, pay attention to what i typed. what it boils down too is yall can't relate. not saying im out here selling dope but yall dont understand the lingo. and until yall understand the lingo in his raps yall are gonna be confused forever. GET THE FUCK OUTTA THE 90's! slaughterhouse, murs, talib kweli, brother ali...as lyrical as they wanna be, the fact that they are corny is inevitbale. being lame is a curse you could never undo. so my suggestion to all the golden-era dick riding homo's, is to get with the new. and to set the record straight nobody in GA fucks with Roscoe or Soulja, but we do fuck with Jeezy, Luda, Tip, Killer Mike, Pastor Troy, Gucci, Waka, Slim Dunkin R.I.P., Alley Boy, Trouble, Yung Ralph, Rocko, Travis Porter, Camoflauge R.I.P, Field Mob, 3 Stacks, Tity Boi, oh yeah Future.

    • niknak

      @hell zel, well that's just sad. Why do you like Future's music if you don't think the lyrics are good? Like, I understand that he makes it just for "the check," but why are you giving him "the check"? It sounds like you don't think he deserves it if he's putting out garbage music.

    • hell zel

      nigga you just saying that because you dont go to the clubs around here, you dont know how big of a buzz this nigga really has in the south. and of course niggas dont care what they say on the track, they are getting paid! duh nigga. niggas dont rap for the best lyricist of the year, they rapping for the check! get your mind right. or let me put it into the words of another "ignorant southern fool" J. Cole "Cause either you play the game or watch the game play you/ And be that broke motherfucker talkin bout "I stay true".

    • Honestly

      Yeah go ahead and support the ATL wack MC acts like Future,Waka Flocka, and Roscoe Dash. And you wonder why people dont take us seriously.This is why people think southern MC are just ignorant stupid fools. I understand that everybody has their own lane but damn. This nigga belongs in the slow lane or maybe the median. He needs to spend more time underground so he can be taught how to actually rhyme. He is horrible and Id be ashamed to Cosign on anything that he is on.

His shit bumps, he knows what he's talkin bout, he gettin paid, and just like the review said, HIS THINKIN AND MIND PROCESSIN IS NOT ON HUMAN LEVEL, where the titles pluto and astronaut status become relevant.

    • get real

      an astronaut have degrees in advanced science physics and mathematics and future's dumb ass lyrics dont measure up to any astronaut theme he just another wack ass rapper from gay-tl with hard beats and weak rhymes that retards keep co-signing! krizz kaliko raps and sings way better than future! http://youtu.be/WMvewdbYIVI

U don't have a lane of ur own and be mad when u see a nigga find his. We swagged out down here and we fearless, that's why y'all niggas hate but slick love how we do shit.

Maybe that's why y'all hoe ass niggas don't like it. Y'all ain't no real niggas no way. Go listen to "my name hold weight", on Streetz Calling.)

      I agree,this is what hip hop needs to be missing. This is trash. Lame attempt at rap. Remember Ron Browz and him making an album with just Autotune. I did just like the song he made "Jumping Out The Window"

  • PayHomage

    Cmon son, this review was some bullshit. It's obvious you listened to the CD wit a jaded view from the jump. The only song you really gave credit was the one wit Drake on it. Then you say 'Magic' (the biggest fucking hit to his credit) was the album's lowest point, kinda shit is that? You shouldna did the damn review if you obviously gotta beef wit his music thats some shady ass journalism. Not every rapper is aiming to be a lyrical genius; that's just the way the rap game is now. Future came wit some ill tracks on here ('Straight Up', 'Paradise', 'Truth Gonna Hurt You', 'Parachute'). & those aint even the singles. Respeck the man for sticking to his guns & not selling out like all these other mufuckas outchea doin now (Wiz, Wayne, Nicki, Drake, Wale, etc). Album was a 3.5/5, DX you aint convincin me this album was worse than Carter 4, Rolling Papers, that poo ass Pink Friday or mufuckin Big Sean album. Kill that shady journalism shit.

    • jay
