Future Tells New Rappers to Thank Him: 'I'm the Reason'

Future
Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival

Future performs on What Stage during day 4 of the 2018 Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival on June 10, 2018 in Manchester, Tenn.

It seems <a href="/music/Future">Future</a> hadn't said all he wanted to say on his new mixtape.

Writing "I been humble way too long" Saturday (July 7) on Twitter, the day after surprise releasing <a href="/articles/columns/hip-hop/8464178/future-unleashes-beast-mode-2-stream-it-now">Beast Mode 2</a>, Future gives himself credit for new rappers' "titles and flows."

"I gracefully gave u a style to run with like it was your own," he continues. "Thank me." See the tweets below.

The new nine-track tape is the Atlanta rapper's first solo release of 2018, produced by Seth Firkins. He again collaborated with <a href="/music/Zaytoven">Zaytoven</a>, who worked on his critically acclaimed 2015 mixtape of the same name. It features just one cameo, from <a href="/music/Young-Scooter">Young Scooter</a>.

There's no doubt Future is on a roll. In June alone, he unveiled his curated <a href="/articles/columns/hip-hop/8460130/stream-future-superfly-movie-soundtrack-featuring-miguel-lil-wayne-young-thug">Superfly motion picture soundtrack</a>, and he wrapped the fifth-longest charting streak ever on the <a href="/charts/hot-100">Billboard Hot 100</a>, after <a href="/articles/columns/chart-beat/8460855/future-166-weeks-hot-100-fifth-longest-chart-streak">166 consecutive weeks</a>.
