Future has teamed with Meek Mill and Doe Boy for an arty and abstract new video for their recent collaboration, “100 Shooters.”

The strange yet compelling scenery includes a flaming motorcycle on the front stoop, a large room where women lay statuesque on the floor as a TV screen shows footage of a tiger and what looks like an empty pool filled with house plants.

Future, Meek Mill, Doe Boy Open Fire on Brooding New Song ‘100 Shooters’

Future, Meek Mill, Doe Boy Open Fire on Brooding New Song ‘100 Shooters’
Future has tapped Meek Mill and Doe Boy for a hard-hitting new song, “100 Shooters.” The track boasts production from Tay Keith and Cubeatz, who balance bruising trap precision with synths that carry the low, ominous feel of a brooding organ and a deceptively light flute loop.

Future, Meek Mill and Doe Boy trade properly audacious verses on thesong, though both Mill and Doe Boy get points for their variations on the theme of sliding into one’s DMs. “I could wipe my ass with these hunnids, I’m the shit bitch,

Hear Lil Baby, Future Pull Gold From Grit on New Song ‘Out the Mud’

Hear Lil Baby, Future Pull Gold From Grit on New Song ‘Out the Mud’
Lil Baby and Future have teamed for a punchy new song, “Out the Mud.” Produced by Quay Global, the track boasts a high-pitched flute loop that twists with manic charm around sharp drums and big bass hits. The beat complements the croaky croons of Lil Baby and Future, who drop plenty of quotables in their verses, like the former’s clever couplet, “It’s a home run, I’m batter up/My earrings like baseballs.”

“Out the Mud” marks Lil Baby’s first solo single of 2019, while it also arrives

Future’s Freewheeling Ep ‘Save Me’

Future’s desolate sing-croon is partially responsible for swaths of chart-topping SoundCloud rap, a generation of hitmakers prioritizing depression over bluster, moods over bars and self-exploration over braggadocio. However, a whopping 19(!)
