Riff: Future – “Look Ahead”

Apr 21, 2014

Ain’t another better feeling/Like the feeling when a nigga make it out the slums/Stackin’ all my racks on racks/I got my niggas rich, I’m at the top where I belong

from Look Ahead lyrics by Future

Bold and ambitious with a distinct Black Hollywood style embedded in its heart, yet amidst all that orchestrated hype are a set of lyrics that are about as interesting as a giant slab of concrete. The beat is a Diplo knockoff and following suite is your predictable outcry of familiar rap humdrumming.
