Future is starting off 2016 with a new body of tunes. The Atlanta native announced on Saturday evening (Jan. 16), that he’s planning to release a mixtape titled Purple Reign.
The project is executive produced by frequent collaborators DJ Esco and Metro Boomin — who was responsible for a handful of tracks off Future’s current album Dirty Sprite 2.
At the tail end of 2014 into 2015, Future dominated the mixtape scene with a trilogy of soundscapes, Monster, Beast Mode (which was also released around this time) and 56 Nights all leading up to his well-received album DS2. In a video interview with Mass Appeal, the “March Madness” rapper gave a little bit of history on his previous mixtapes, beginning with the first one, 1000.
