[With his long-awaited Pluto album finally on stores shelves, Atlanta rapper Future gives you five reasons to cop the new debut LP.]
1. Conceptually Hot
The first reason why you should buy my album is because it's trendy. It's melodic. It's a classic. When I say this is trendy, I'm referring to all of the concepts that's on here. I've got songs on here with Trae the Truth to R. Kelly and Juicy J. So you're hearing a lot of different sounds. Then look at the songs on here from "Magic" to "Astronaut Chick." It's a theme behind Pluto. I'm telling you what music has come to.
2. You're Gonna Get Hook'd
It's very versatile. I really tried to be creative without having to come up with regular hooks. In some cases I have hooks that are very melodic and sing-a-long, with singing and rapping. So a big reason you should buy the album is because you're going to get a bit of everything. You're hearing that versatility. I've got rapping verses, I've got melodic verses, I've got verses with a lot of talent. That's why I say this is so versatile. Not every song is going to sound the same.
3. Class-ic Act
On this album, there's an emphasis on the rapping but at the same time it's melodic. I want to call this album classic because it's music that I've been working on for the past year and a half. That's why this is a classic to me, I've been able to pick out some of my best material and not having to go through mixtapes. I was able to keep songs that I wanted and save them for the album. When you put songs together and have a long period of time, you want that first album to be a classic because it's your first one. You can never take that time or get it back. That's why this is special to me.
4. We Outta Here, Baby
It's out of here. It's Pluto. The concept was really just about having fun. I wanted to make sure it was not easy to identify. It's going to take years for you to catch up to it because it takes years to go into outerspace. So for Pluto, it's going to take you at least a year to fully get it. Go listen to my mixtape material and see why I went with this album title. Listen to that music and get familar. Listen to all of those and then you can understand why Pluto is Pluto.
5. The Pied Piper Returns
The fifth reason is because you should support great music. If you get the album, you're going to hear my favorite records like "Parachute" with R. Kelly. It was great doing the collaboration with Kells because he already had his verse finished and sent it to me. So I listened to it, fed off his energy and just wrote a rap to it. It came out great.
