The rap star's sophomore studio release's artwork surfaced online heading into the weekend.
All eyes are on Future. A day after dropping the video for "Move That Dope," the Atlanta rapper unveils the dark and mysterious cover art for his sophomore album Honest. In addition to the Mike WiLL Made It-produced single with Pharrell and Pusha T, the follow-up to his 2012 debut Pluto features appearances from Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West. (Rap-Up)
A few weeks back, Future revealed he initially packed his sophomore effort with somber-sounding tunes.
"The album that you gonna get when it comes out is not the album I was working on when I first started recording. It was another kind of album. It was more... I guess I was just expressing myself about everyday life and where I was at then--just emotionally, personally. The beats were slower, had more guitar riffs, just playing around with the piano more and with different instruments." (ELLE)
Future credited the creation of one particular track for completely changing up his new album's content.
"I started going in another direction after I made the "Sh*t" record. It just flipped the whole album. I got in a whole other mood when I went in the studio. I just started recording, recording, recording as much as possible. I just got in a great zone. I was able to capture the best moments. It helped me make a classic album. It's just going to be very timeless." (ELLE)
