Five years ago, Future (the stage name of Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn) was releasing independently-produced mixtapes. Now he's debuting joint-tapes with his buddy Drake—What a Time to Be Alive, indeed. The Atlanta-native comes to Chicago behind his latest studio-album, DS2, which straddles the line between R&B and rapping, laying woozy trap beats beneath his Auto-Tuned Southern drawl. The subject matter (drugs, the cost of fame) may be dark, but Future's intensity is undeniably mesmerizing. Ty Dolla $ign and Lil Donald support.
