IT’S MUSIC SEASON. Future kicks off his 2016 with a mixtape titled Purple Reign and wow, what a fast start to the year. The rapper teams up with the two hottest producers in the game, Metro Boomin and DJ Escoe, to bring the rap world another classic tape. Future brings the purp, drugs, and signature style to all of the 13 tracks on the tape. DimiHub gives Purple Reign an 8/10. Future’s cover/name for this tape looks very familiar, and it’s clear who he was inspired by.
The tape comes in on a hot week of music and stands out easily above the rest.
We will break down the best song, worst song, and why you should/shouldn’t download, but first, how does this compare to Drake and Future’s What A Time To Be Alive? It might actually be better. There is no outright hits on Purple Reign like there was on WATTBA, but this is a project that has quality songs all throughout the tape. It’s not up to Dirty Sprite 2 standards but it’s still very good.
The beat mixed with some hard lyrics make this song the most likely to hit the radio stations. “Put your main bitch on a satellite” is Future telling you that he’s better than, daring you to “Run Up” on him. This is the one song that stands out in DimiHub’s listen to the mixtape.
This song isn’t even a bad song. In fact, it’s very very good. This speaks to the quality of a mixtape Purple Reign is. Never Forget was just slightly off in comparison to the rest of the mixtape. But it’s still a great listen.
Should you download it? ABSOLUTELY, YES. This is the next wave up rap taking over, and Future is the founding father. He will continue to provide the world with rap’s biggest hits for the next few years. This tape is an absolute must listen for rap fans.
