After freeing his Monster mixtape onto streaming services for the project’s fifth anniversary last year, today (April 3), Future opts to repeat the cycle by releasing his Zaytoven-produced opus, Beast Mode to all digital platforms.
Released in January 2015, Beast Mode was the second of three mixtapes to enshrine Future’s status as a decorated trap savant.
The eight-song project boasted features from Juvenile and Young Scooter. In 2018, Future and Zaytoven doubled up and released Beast Mode 2. The sequel housed hits such as “WiFi Lit” and “31 Days.”
“It just goes to show that you gotta do s–t your way,” Future told Billboard last year regarding his blistering three-tape run. “Do what you feel in your heart. If you feel it’s right in your heart, it’s gonna work. That’s what it was about for all three of those mixtapes. I felt that I just wanted to put out music. It wasn’t because I was trying to get a big advance, or I was going to get some show money from this. It was just me dropping mixtapes, mixtapes, mixtapes, every two to three months.”
Currently, Future’s “Life Is Good’ remains in the winner’s circle on the Hot 100, sitting comfortably at No. 6 after previously peaking at No. 2. Last week, Future also dropped his new record, “Tycoon.”
