56 Nights, the all new mixtape from Future and Southside inspired by DJ Esco's two-month stint in an Abu Dhabi prison, has been bleeding out of my headphones all week. It's the finale in a trilogy of tapes that have either cemented the return of "Dirty Sprite" Future of his 2011 breakout era, or the arrival of an entirely different beast in the wake of his publicized break-up. Either way, it's top to bottom fire, and "March Madness" was the gripping standout that's gained 1.5 million Soundcloud plays in less than two weeks. Unlike late bloom of "Commas," Future's on it, and drops visuals today that capture the weight of the record: snippets of Nation of Islam prayers and police brutality clashes wash over a buttoned up Future, swerving past oppressors and detractors alike: We the ones that kept it cool with all these niggas till these niggas started acting. Producer Tarentino's wily key changes and bridges only further dramatize, a horror score for a movie we can't look away from.
