DS2 is one of the greatest trap albums of all-time.

TOP 5

 

5. THOUGHT IT WAS A DROUGHT

“Thought It Was A Drought” takes a long time to get going, but once it does, you will fall in love!

“Thought It Was A Drought” features a bunch of different flows, a bass booming beat that sounds like it was made in the same laboratory that Frankenstein was made in, and some of the most reckless lyrics I’ve ever heard in my life (Future talks about seeing codeine in his piss and f**king b*tches in flip flops).

Whenever “Thought It Was A Drought” plays in the club, I go ham!

 

 

4. WHERE YA AT

“Where Ya At” is a hit that sounds like it took minimal effort to make.

I love the tempo attached to “Where Ya At;” it gets my heart to race and my stomach to turn (In a good way). As for Future, on the song, he shines despite sounding drunk as s**t and like a n***a that complains a lot.

Drake’s verse on “Where Ya At” is a very good one. Not only does he sound gassed up on it, but he also rides the song’s unorthodox beat extremely well. S**t, if it wasn’t for Drake’s verse, I probably would’ve gone to sleep before the song ended.

“Where Ya At” is a middle of the pack Future and Drake song.

 

 

3. STICK TALK

“Stick Talk” is the hypest/rawest song on “DS2.”

Future probably made “Stick Talk” after taking tons of tequila shots. Throughout the song, he uses his outside voice and he brags about his drug-taking, money-making, and gun-toting ways. While “Stick Talk” is a song that we can all enjoy, I have a feeling that Future enjoys it even more than us.

“Stick Talk” is a great song that takes no real skills to make… (Can we just be honest?)

 

 

2. TRAP N***AS

“Trap N***as” is a classic club joint.

Maybe listening to “Trap N***as” through your earphones isn’t all that amazing, but when you hear the song in the right setting — like in a club with trappers, tons of spilled drinks, and questionable vixens — it is unbelievable!

I love “Trap N***as,” but let’s be honest, GOD isn’t blessing dudes that are selling drugs and grabbing straps…

 

 

1. F*CK UP SOME COMMAS

“F**k Up Some Commas” might be Future’s best song.

In my opinion, “F*ck Up Some Commas” is “Real Sisters,” “Trap N***as,” “Stick Talk” and “Freak Hoe” on crack.

Below are the reasons that I love “F*ck Up Some Commas”:

  1. The song’s beat is action-packed, trap-certified, and high-powered.
  2. The hook that Future blesses us with on the song is catchy and multi-layered.
  3. The lyrics attached to the song are inspirational and trill as f**k.
  4. Those damn sirens are GODLY!

Is “F*ck Some Commas” one of the greatest club bangers of all-time?

OVERALL RATING

(B)

 

On DS2, I feel like Future merged his mixtape self with his commercial self rather well. As a result, what the album ends up boasting is classic club bangers, grungy love songs, and authentic trap music

Future’s last few albums have struggled to capture the same magic DS2 (Short for “Dirty Sprite 2”) has. Don’t get me wrong, albums like Future, The Wizrd, and High Off Life have serious bangers, they just aren’t as timeless-sounding. Whatever the case may be, Future is a hall-of-famer already and it’s mainly because of DS2.

  1. Personally I did not like “Thought it was a drought”. I predict “Rotation”, “Stick Talk”, or “Fuck up some commas” will make the top 3. Slave master too.

      Thought It Was A Drought Is such a classic song, to me, but I agree, it isn’t great… had to put it in my top 5 for now, but definitely subject to change after the full review.
