Coachella 2017: HustleTV 

HustleTV  Music News  Future:  As the sun set on the Indio Valley for Day 2 of the Coachella Music Festival on Saturday (April 15), Future came alive in the nighttime.

Rap’s melody connoisseur and drug-laden wordsmith came fully prepared for his Coachella debut, keeping the energy a 100 emoji while showing the breadth of his catalog. Alongside Ty Dolla $ign , the Atlanta MC launched his set at 7:31 p.m. PT with “Blasé” before hitting his turn-up anthems “New Level” (the A$AP Ferg-hosted cut), “Same Damn Time” and “Sh-t.”

The three-screen Jumbotron featured an assortment of visuals which included scantily clad women shaking their bottoms, distorted images of Future and a Sprite bottle or the Freebandz crew as well as vicious dog bites. While his frequent tour mate DJ Esco tried to pit a battle of the littest between both sides of the audience, the real winner was any member of the Future Hive.

Future’s performance was equal parts screwed-face soundtrack (“Stick Talk,” “I Thought It Was a Drought” and “Where Ya At”) and sing along (“Fresh Air” and “Incredible”). After cementing his own piece of history with back-to-back Billboard 200 No. 1 albums Future and HNDRXX earlier this year, the rapper knows how to cater to different tastes and demographics in his fan base without alienating his creative process. HustleTV 

Luckily for Coachella-goers, he’s also not selfish with the output. Migos invaded the Coachella stage for performances of Culture cuts “T-Shirt” and “Bad and Boujee.” To preface Drake’s cameo, Future told the crowd, “We gotta turn this shit all the way up. I want everybody jumpin’ — that’s my goal tonight.” The 6 God then took over for abbreviated renditions of “Jumpman” and “Gyalchester.” The More Life MC also made a special request before exiting: “Can we just have a real Coachella moment and sing one song together?” He then conducted a chorus class-style performance of “Fake Love.”

​There were tender moments in the set, like Future performing the vulnerable number “My Collection” and The Weeknd-assisted “Coming Out Strong.” His parting gift, though, was the hit that launched a thousand challenge videos, “Mask Off,” which boasts the street commandments “Chase a check/ Never chase a b-tch.” Though unfiltered and direct in delivery, his latest releases show that Future continues to even outdo himself.  HustleTV 


Future on Making Chart History and Kicking It With ‘Superstar Females

By | Music, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News The Atlanta rap god Future, like other gods before him, is known by many names. He was born Nayvadius Wilburn into a family of street hustlers going back at least two ­generations. As a kid he picked up the ­moniker Meathead, both for his oversize dome and, later, his general gangster ­toughness. When he began rapping in his teens at his cousin Rico Wade’s Dungeon studio — where OutKast was busy ­reinventing hip-hop — he was given the name Future (as in “the future of music,” which is kind of ­mind-blowing, coming from a place making tunes like “So Fresh, So Clean”). And to his friends he’s mostly known as Pluto, which is all at once the title of his 2012 major-label debut, a metaphor for ­getting supremely high and a symbol of the scale of his ambitions. “I’m the astronaut kid,” he says, impassive behind a pair of ever-present sunglasses. “At the end of the day, I’m out of here — above anything.” HustleTV

But on this late-February afternoon, as he kicks back by a Miami pool with the sky turning pink and a balmy breeze rustling the palms, another nickname is foremost on the 33-year-old MC’s mind. Pulling from a tightly rolled blunt, he waxes philosophical about his latest, greatest success: two new LPs, Future and HNDRXX, whose titles together make up what might be his favorite way of ­referring to himself. As he sees it, calling ­himself Future Hendrix connects him to Jimi’s cosmic style, creativity and breakthrough ­success as a black artist in the primarily white world of rock’n’roll. “The music I make, I’m ­different,” he says, rocking a Balmain denim jacket with enough silver spangling woven through it to make All Rose jealous. “The melodies I come up with, they’re not normal. Every black person wasn’t playing the guitar — Hendrix did something special.” HustleTV

The previous week, Future had surprised fans with the self-titled album (his sixth, not counting the hit packed mixtapes he has released through his own Freebandz label), which landed at No. 1, becoming his fourth consecutive album to do so. Then, in a move unprecedented in chart history, HNDRXX arrived just seven days later and replaced Future in the top spot. (Epic Records says the two albums will also be combined into a ­physical release later this year.) Future’s clearly pleased with the success but insists that he ­values authenticity more than ­numbers. “If I’m the biggest artist in the world, cool, but I want to just be me,” he says. “I want my money to be different. I’m not trying to have rapper money. My goal is to be able to get everything from the world that I can get.” HustleTV

Future Will Release New Album This Week, Announces Nobody Safe Tour

By | Featured, Music, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. Future is ready to get back on the saddle and release his new self-titled album this Friday (Feb. 17).

For the first time in a month, Future tweeted and revealed that his first album since his 2016 release EVOL will be out this week. “I was preparing the feast. U walked away from the table too soon,” he wrote.

His new 17-track endeavor will feature Migos, Tory Lanez, and Kodak Black. In addition to his new project, Future will embark on a new tour (The Nobody Safe Tour), which will feature all three of the previously mentioned album collaborators. In addition to his supporting acts, he will also have A$AP Ferg and Young Thug available for select dates. HustleTV

The Nobody Safe Tour will begin May 4 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis and will conclude June 30 in Las Vegas, NV.

Known for being a workhorse, Future has been quiet on the music front since last year. In 2016, Future released his mixtape Purple Reign and his album EVOL. Then, he and Drake ventured out together on their Summer 16 Tour. Amidst his exciting song/tour announcement, Future also jumped on the new Maroon 5 single “Cold,” which dropped Tuesday (Feb. 14). HustleTV

HustleTV Music News….  Though 2016 is coming to a close, Future shows no signs of slowing down his campaign of delivering music at an unprecedented rate.

Earlier this week, producer Zaytoven shared that Beast Mode 16, the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s Beast Mode is finally finished. With many questions lingering about the project and what to expect from the rapper who has become a champion for album-quality mixtapes, Billboard caught up with Zaytoven on the red carpet of the BET Hip Hop Awards 2016 to discuss the forthcoming release.

“We should be dropping a single within two weeks,” he offered, continuing, “and it’s featuring Drake.” HustleTV

DJ Khaled Drops ‘Do You Mind’ Ft. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, More

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album Major Key will be available at midnight July 29. (See track list below). To get fans excited for the star-studded album, Khaled shared a new single, “Do You Mind” today (July 28). DJ Hustle

The sultry bedroom song samples Michael Sterling’s “Lovers and Friends,” which comes across in a romantic piano that crosses with a strong beat. Because Khaled isn’t satisfied with just one or two features on his singles aka “keys,” he tapped six names to join him on “Do You Mind.” Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, Jermih, Rick Ross and August Alsina all appear on the track (via SPIN).

Minaj starts things off. “Yo, he ain’t messin’ with no average trick, pop pop/ He got Nicki, he know dat he hit the jackpot,” she raps in the opening seconds of her verse. Brown and Jeremih combine their vocal strengths on the chorus. “Let me be the one/ Do you mind? Do you mind?/ Do you mind if I talk to you?/ Do you mind if I touch you there?” they sing together. Future comes in after the 3-minute mark with a passionate verse. HustleTV

Kiiara’s Hit Song ‘Gold’ Was Inspired by ‘The Idea That You Don’t Have to Answer to Anyone’

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV. Music News…. Kiiara has only released a handful of slick electronic pop songs to date, but she’s already amassed an army of supporters. Last summer, Apple’s Beats 1 Radio played her song “Feels” directly after the high-profile debut of  Drakeand Future’s What A Time To Be Alive mixtape. In May, Shazam placed Kiiara’s “Gold” 4th on a list of 12 possible candidates for the Song of the Summer title. The tune already has more than 188 million plays on Spotify, and it recently cracked the top 25 on the Pop Songs Airplay chart. Billboard caught up with Kiiara to talk about writing songs while working a nightmare job at a hardware store and the first time she heard herself on the radio. DJ Hustle

How did you first get into music?

When I was younger, music was always there. I played piano for five years, flute for a year, then picked up a guitar and really started writing. Writing-wise I started when I was 17. Whatever was bothering me, I could just write about it in a song. I was in the west suburbs of Chicago, then I moved an hour south, and then I went to school up on the South Side — Saint Xavier, though I was at Purdue for a second before I dropped out.


And you were working at a hardware store when you wrote “Gold”?

I wanted a job during the summer. When I was on break that’s what I would do when I would go back home.

And then you’d write at night?

DJ Hustle HustleTV.tv Hustle

DJ Hustle HustleTV.tv Hustle

Yeah, I was always writings songs — in my dorm room, anywhere.

What was the best part about working in a hardware store?

I don’t know if I can even answer that. I hated it. I was really bad at it too — people would ask where stuff was and I’d be like yeah, that’s in aisle 24, and it would be in aisle 7. I was useless. I don’t know how I wasn’t fired.

How did you connect with producer Felix Snow?

A writer I was working with connected me. We started working via email, and then I flew out a couple times and worked with him in person.

Had you heard any of his stuff before you started working with him?

I heard this Momma project he did with a friend of mine who I was co-writing with, David Singer-Vine. It was so sick. I told David it was tight; he said this producer did it. It’s all sort of boring. I can’t remember the exact moment.

What do you like about Snow’s production style?

The main thing is the chemistry is there when we’re working together. When you’re working with a producer, there has to be chemistry. He’s not afraid to try different sounds. He’s really good with vocals — it’s super dope.

Was “Gold” the first song you made with him?

No, it wasn’t. We made one track, then we made a different version of “Gold” – a down-tempo version, because I originally wrote the song on classical guitar. So it was the second one.

Future Discusses Desiigner Comparisons, Ciara, Russell Wilson & More In ‘Rolling Stone

By | Featured | No Comments

Future is the latest artist to snag a cover of Rolling Stone, dishing on his beginnings as a rising artist in Atlanta to his stance on music today, concerning Desiigner’s familiar sound. HustleTV

When asked by a journalist for his thoughts on the “Panda” rapper, the Dirty Sprite 2artist barely spent any time on the G.O.O.D. Music signee. “I never worried about anyone else … I don’t even want his name in the article,” he said.

Future then responded to questions on Ciara’s supposed lawsuit, briefly stating that he “can’t deal with it.”

“I can’t even think about it. I never imagined my life would be like that: ‘I’m going to sue you and take away from you,’” he said. “I don’t know how to deal with something like that. All I know is record, record, record, record.”

When asked if he ever wished ill will upon Ciara, the “March Madness” rapper revealed he would never do such a thing and that her happiness and success makes him proud because it directly influences their son.

He then shifted his attention to Russell Wilson, Ciara’s fiance, and responded to the interviewer’s question on whether or not he feels uncomfortable when he sees baby Future interacting with the Seattle Seahawks QB.

“It’s something that’ll take more time for me. It ain’t even about [him] playing daddy. I don’t even want to think about it,” he admits. “That’s my son forever. My son is going to be able to read this. He’s going to be able to look at those pictures. He’s going to be able to have a judgment for himself, and have a conversation with me man-to-man. That’s my blood. He is me. I am him. We is one.”

Another topic concerned Future’s consumption of lean, going into detail as to why he started to use the codeine concoction in his everyday endeavors.

“It started making me more relaxed. Sometimes you experience anxiety, and it did me some good for that. I don’t feel like I ever abused it. I used it for what I felt was needed.” DJ Hustle
