Future delivered BEASTMODE 2, the sequel to his 2015 mixtape, to Apple Music with a short, sweet message: “Luv, Pluto.” The greeting-card sign-off harks back to his 2012 debut album, Pluto, and while the prolific rapper has since released five solo albums and many collaborations, BEASTMODE 2 indeed feels like a reward to those who’ve been following along since the start. Like its predecessor, the melodic, piano-filled, nine-track mixtape is entirely produced by fellow Atlantan Zaytoven. But while both mixtapes celebrate his successes, they also share an underlying darkness, detailing addiction and despondency. “Damn, I hate the real me,” he sings on the solemn final track.
Laced with 9 tracks in total, the sequel to 2015’s Beast Mode mixtape is executive produced by Zaytoven again, and features a lone appearance from Young Scooter, who appears on the song “Doh Doh.” Other song titles include “Cuddle My Wrist,” “Racks Blue” & “Hate The Real Me” to name a few.
