Is Future still the G.O.A.T of trap music ?

by Shawna Montout

Future is back with another project: THE WIZRD. He has done a lot for trap music. At one point he was the G.O.A.T of trap music. Is he still?

From 2014 to 2017, Future had the trap scene on fire. «  Fuck up some commas », « WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE » featuring Drake… Nayvadius Wilburn proved us that he had his place. He brought a new sound and influenced a generation of new rappers. He was also added to the list of rappers from the south especially Atlanta.

For some time, we weren’t hearing from him as much as we used to. Now he is coming back with something new: THE WIZRD. 20 songs and one hour of trap music. Future is being transparent in this album, drugs, betrayal, love money… Everything is being talked about.

But when you look at it Future has been giving us what he gave us with THE WIZRD since the beginning. With mixtapes like Dirty sprite and songs like «  Codeine crazy” and «  lean in my cup », Future has put lean in the center of his music. He evoked the fact that he stops drinking lean and that he was afraid that his fan would stop listening to him because of that. He is opening more and sharing his feelings. But on a musical point of view, he is not bringing something new.

Future will always stay a legend for trap music. He brought a new sound, his own. And he inspired many. A lot of rappers started music because of him. He is a talented artist but has been the G.O.A.T others took his place. He said it himself: «  Lil baby and Gunna are the goats of trap music right now ».
