Future has been releasing videos every Monday for weeks now, methodically adding visuals to the songs from his bracing trilogy of recent mixtapes. Yesterday he upped the ante, putting out a new video for “Lay Up” (from Beast Mode) as well as a high-powered remix to “Fuck Up Some Commas,” the Monster track that has been climbing the Hot 100 for 7 weeks.
The fun thing about the clips is that they generally involve the same elements—mainly Future dancing in a low-key way so that he doesn't spill the drink in his hand. It’s as if he’s been making one long video for weeks. Since the latest track in need of a visual is “Lay-Up,” the video takes place on a basketball court.
For the new version of “Fuck Up Some Commas,” Future incorporates the booming textures of Rick Ross and the stern sneers of Big Sean. “Threw a party with Future, that’s Futurama,” Sean raps, “got a future baby mama looking like a young Madonna mixing with Rihanna.” That’s the second time this week Rihanna and Madonna have been associated.
