On Friday, Future hit up social media to announce his new underground effort’s release.
Future has released a new mixtape called Beastmode 2. The followup to his Beast Mode tape from 2015, the 9-track release was executive produced by Zaytoven and Seth Firkins, who passed away at the end of last year. Beastmode 2 follows two volumes of new Future music for Superfly, the Director X remake of the 1972 blaxploitation film of the same name. Future also recently announced a North American and European tour with Nicki Minaj. (SPIN)
Back in January, speculation developed about Future finally putting out the much-needed new mixtape.
Over the past few days, various hip-hop artists co-signed Meek’s new EP.
