Last Friday, Future released his hard-hitting self-titled studio album. The 17-track project features the lean-sippin’ Atlanta rapper that we’ve come to love and cherish at his hardest, spitting ruthless bars across every feature-less track on the project.
Yesterday, Future Hendrix dropped an affluent visual for the single “Super Trapper,” showcasing his climb from the bottom of the barrel to the top of the hip-hop food chain. The boastful music video features the melodic rhymer surrounded by scantily clad models, expensive whips, and all-around opulence.
Directed by Sam Lecca, the glitzy music video could double as a new (and improved) episode of MTV Cribs. From the pearly white staircase to the shark tank, Future walks you through his lavish lifestyle as a “Super Trapper.” However, it’s clear from his rhymes on the Southside & DY (of 808 Mafia)-produced joint that the southern spitter hasn’t forgotten where he came from.
“Rags to riches, fuck these snitches I ain't scared, bruh/Cold and shiesty, put some prices on your head,” he vehemently boasts in the first verse.
The trapped-out beat is packed with relentless percussion and slippery samples, sonically placing you smack in the middle of the rapper’s dream mansion. Future surfs over the cut with his impeccable flow, gloating about his rise in the rap game, as well as his daily diet of exotic women and cars.
After recently completing his massive world tour with Drake, Future stated his intention to return to the underground sound that helped his fan base pop off. On both “Super Trapper” and throughout all of Future, the Atlanta rapper stays true to his word, delivering his most ruthless project since the critically acclaimed album Dirty Sprite 2.
All in all, the latest visual serves as a peek into the decadent life of the trapper-turned-rapper. Even though Future looks back at his roots with pride, he ultimately makes it clear in the hook that he “can't never go back broke and that what really matter.”
