Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD is out now on Epic/Freebandz
Today, rap superstar Future releases his highly-anticipated seventh full-length album, Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD. The album was first teased earlier this month with the release of the banging track, “Crushed Up” and a sick wintery video set in a mansion only fit for one of the top artists in the industry.
In November, Future spoke on The WIZRD, claiming he was feeling extremely inspired and stating the newest album would be his “greatest album of all time” — or at least to date. We now know Future wasn’t lying at all. The 20-track juggernaut album finds Future delivering some of his catchiest lyrics and beats and once again taking fans through an exciting new chapter in his prolific career. Stream The WIZRD below.
The new album features must-hear collaborations with Young Thug, Travis Scott, and Gunna, and finds the Atlanta rapper crooning through codeine-drenched bars about sex, money, power, drugs, and all of the things that one might encounter as a multi-millionaire artist. The WIZRD points to Future’s growing inspiration and vision for his legacy, once again leveling up sonically, lyrically, conceptually, and preparing for a new era of hits, videos, mixtapes, and sold-out tours.
To celebrate the album’s release, Future delivered a showstopping performance of “Crushed Up” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and will take over Ellen in just a few days. Future’s NPR “Tiny Desk” concert will also air soon.
Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD follows a whirlwind few years for the Atlanta rapper born Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn. In 2017, Future unleashed the platinum-certified Future and gold-selling Hndrxx back-to-back and emerged as “the first artist to release two Billboard Top 200 number ones in consecutive weeks.” Future also released his single “Mask Off” which went quadruple-platinum, landed at #5 on the Hot 100, and became the rapper’s biggest smash yet.
In addition, he performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo 2018, headlined the massive “Nobody Safe” Tour, released highly-successful collaborative albums with Young Thug and Juice WRLD, dropped the Superfly soundtrack in 2018, and also put out Beastmode 2.
