Future Demands Credit for Influencing New Generation of Rappers
Future briefly disabled the internet on Friday (July 6), with the surprise release of his new mixtape, BeastMode 2, his first solo release of 2018. And with it, Hendrix is back to reclaim what he thinks is rightfully his. On Friday night, the Atlanta rapper went off on Twitter, demanding his credit for birthing the new generation of rappers.
Hendrix is apparently at his wit's end with what he see as carbon copies in the rap game. "Enough of these lil niggas running round like I ain’t make y’all 🙄," he started. "I been humble way too long...Your titles and flows came Frm me..stop fuckin playin."
He later added, "Only thing I ever said in life I didn’t come up with is NOCAP and I made the world say it..NO CAP."
The "No Shame" rapper is definitely on his high horse having just put out his highly-anticipated new project, the sequel to 2015's Beast Mode. Entirely produced by Atlanta luminary, Zaytoven, the nine-song project features one cameo from Young Scooter.
Of course, the internet had plenty to say about the release when it dropped. After giving the new offering a few thorough listens, XXL handpicked 20 of the best lyrics on the tape. News recently surfaced that Future had plans on dropping the project earlier in the week, but pushed it back out of respect for Drake's Scorpion album.
Check out Future's tweets where he takes credit for birthing rap's new stars below.
