Can you think of a more on-brand title for a Future album than I Never Liked You?
At this point in his career, Future knows exactly what his fans want from him, and he’s embracing it. Alongside guests like Kanye, Drake, Gunna, Young Thug, Kodak Black, and Tems, he’s here to lean into the meme and deliver that signature Future toxicity just in time for summer.
Speaking with GQ for a recent cover story, he told fans what to expect from the album, explaining, “I’m putting myself out there. Sharing my lifestyle with the world. Sharing my pain with the world. Sharing my ups, sharing my downs with the entire universe. I’m willing to give you all of me, so you can tell me how to build on me, and make me a better me.”
After a couple initial spins, members of the Complex Music team—Andre Gee, Jordan Rose, and Jessica McKinney—shared their thoughts. Here’s our first-listen review of Future’s I Never Liked You.
