Future wants to change things up, and his new album might do just that. The self titled album, his first since the 2016 effort EVOL, dropped today, and social media is already filling with early reviews — not that Future will see them. 

Last month the rapper unplugged from all of his social media, in an effort to focus entirely on music and his family. For two years, it's been impossible to go anywhere without hearing a track from the Atlanta native, and it began to overwhelm him. "Everything started coming together when I shut down the [social] media," he explained to Zane Lowe during a visit to Beats 1 yesterday. "It was probably the best thing that I ever done." 

"I feel like I just wanna go back to being more underground," he continued. The desire to get back to basics is reflected in the album: there's not one single feature on the 17 track record. He will involve some friends later down the road though: he plans to tour the record with support from Migos, Kodak Black, Young Thug and Tory Lanez.
