Future Drops Surprise Mixtape ’56 Nights’
After dropping his 2014 mixtape Monster and his Beast Mode project in January, Future is back with another surprise mixtape titled 56 Nights. The title is in reference to DJ Esco’s time spent in a Dubai prison last year after he got arrested for marijuana possession.
Now that Esco is home safe and sound, it’s time to celebrate. What better way to celebrate a homecoming than to drop some hot music.
The 10-track mixtape boasts production from Southside 808 Mafia and braggadocious rhymes from the Astronaut Man. One standout track, “March Madness,” produced by Tarentino, Future raps about balling out of control.
“I’m ballin’ like it’s March Madness,” he raps. “All these cops shootin’ n----s it’s tragic / I’m the one who’s living lavish / Like I’m playing for the Mavericks.”
According to XXL, Future has two more mixtapes in the works. The first will be Dirty Sprite 2, which is the sequel to his 2011 mixtape. There is also a Mike WiLL Made-It produced-only mixtape titled Ape S---. “It’s like a tape, really,” says Future about the project. ”Just something to just feed the streets right quick, ’cause at the end of the day, me and Future do so many different types of music.”
