31 Best Future Songs

Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, better known as Future, is a highly successful Atlanta rapper. He’s known for his deep, semi-scratchy voice, autotune, mumble rapping, heavy trap beats, and top-notch collaborations with artists like Drake, Lil Wayne, Rich Gang, Kendrick Lamar, and even non-hip hop artists like Taylor Swift.

Here are the best Future songs.

1. March Madness By Future

Song Year: 2015

Future makes several references in his song “March Madness,” but the title references the NCAA basketball competition of the same name.

He compares him and his crew balling, similar to how they ball during the basketball competition. Then, he immediately compares shooting shots on the basketball court to police officers shooting black people on the streets.

Although this sounds like a fun club song on the surface, it's politically charged, highlighting the ongoing police brutality and civil rights issues in America, especially for men of color.

2. Stick Talk By Future

Song Year: 2015

Arguably one of the best Future songs for a lit party, “Stick Talk” has an incredibly enticing beat with heavy bass.

The song is about guns, as his stick is slang for a gun. Future comes from a hood environment, and he speaks about how his hood is constantly under investigation from the police because of the guns, robberies, and drugs.

As a product of his environment, he ends up spending money on new toys, and by toys, he also means new guns. Listeners may not be able to understand it if they don't come from that hard life where you have to prove your toughness to survive.

3. Low Life By Future Featuring The Weeknd

Song Year: 2016

Low Life is a song about people who are “low lives,” or in other words, are seen as people who lack moral character.

Instead of shaming people like this, Future speaks to how his participation in guns, sex, drugs, and even cheating.

It's an interesting take since people see Future, The Weeknd, and other celebrities living the “high life.” But this song alludes to the fact that many rich people also participate in these “low life” activities; they just get away with it because they have money.

Also, it has a fantastic beat, and Future and The Weeknd sound great on the track.

4. Where Ya At By Future Featuring Drake

Song Year: 2015

Some of Future's songs have hidden meanings and reference many different topics that it can be challenging to figure out what they're about.

But with “Where Ya At,” the message is unambiguous. It's speaking directly to people who are now approaching Future and Drake because they are rich and famous but were not present during the long, harrowing journey to get to the success they currently have.

For example, Future questions where these so-called “friends” were when he was struggling to sell drugs, and Drake wonders where his people were when he was recording music in the bathroom and trying to make it big.

5. F*ck Up Some Commas By Future

Song Year: 2015

“F*ck Up Some Commas” is a fun, hype party song about money. The word commas refer to large denominations of money, e.g., having more commas in your bank account, net worth, or the things you can afford.

F*cking up commas, then, means being able to spend money on things that are $100,000 to $1,000,000 and beyond.

Also, like many Future songs, “Where Ya At” is a great song for testing earphones due to the heavy use of bass, claps, and other intricate beats. \

6. Honest By Future

Song Year: 2013

Rappers often get a lot of pushback from talking about how much money they have, how many attractive women are around them, the drugs they can do, and so on.

Either it seems too extravagant, to the point where people think they're lying, or it sounds too conceited.

In this song, Future is speaking about all those things but pointing out that he's just being honest about his life. Future had also been accused of lying about his net worth, so some people see this song as a direct response to that.

7. Turn On The Lights By Future

Song Year: 2012

“Turn On The Lights” is one of Future's more sentimental songs. It's about looking for a girl that won't hurt him, presumably how someone hurt him in the past.

He doesn't want a woman that will keep promises, be loyal, and not cheat on him. He knows what he wants; he just needs to find her.

For a song with such a heavy bass, it's a very ambient, atmospheric song, which is fitting for the more romantic lyrics.

This song helped set up Future's reputation as someone willing to experiment with autotune and sing in his rap songs.

8. Used to This By Future Featuring Drake

Song Year: 2016

At this point in his corner, Future had quite literally been able to get used to a lavish, extravagant lifestyle. At first, it might have been surprising, exciting, and even unbelievable, especially because he grew up in poverty.

However, he ensures the audience that he still remembers where he came from and will always stay humble. It's a bit ironic since he still drops brands, cars, vacations, etc. But some will argue that he can be humble and proud of his achievements.

9. You Da Baddest By Future Featuring Nicki Minaj

Song Year: 2017

Future and Nicki Minaj collaborated on “You Da Baddest,” about women who are “bad,” which is slang for sexy and powerful.

This is an anthem for women who might be mistreated by other women. It's a reminder that people might hate you simply because they are jealous of how gorgeous, amazing, and successful you are.

There's no reason to play into the jealousy and hate because you know you're bad!

10. Wicked By Future

Song Year: 2016

Trap music got another big hit when Future dropped “Wicked” in 2016. With its chopped-up violin instrumental, heavy 808 beats, enticing hi-hats, and fire bass, this song has everything it needs to be an instant hit for trap music lovers.

“Wicked” is also similar to “Low Life” in that it references aspects of his life that some may deem morally wrong, such as drug dealing, gambling, and violence.

It's an excellent song to dance to or play loudly in the car with subwoofers booming in the back.

11. Rich $ex By Future

Song Year: 2015

Future often talks about both sex and money in his songs, but this song literally is talking about enjoying both of them at the same time by having what he called rich sex.

So what is rich sex anyway? He raps about having sex with fancy jewelry on and in high-end places. According to Future, sex is great, but rich sex is even better.

It's another slow, somewhat “romantic” song that shows Future can do more than j trap and hard party beats.
