Future fans are celebrating today after the rapper's iconic 2014 mixtape Monster arrived on all major streaming platforms for the first time. The tape, which includes hits like Lil Wayne collaboration "After That," is now streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, and more. The FADER has reached out for comment.
Posting about the release of the mixtape on Monday via Instagram, Future wrote: "I’ve always spoke through my music and the people championed my trials and tribulations whole heartedly with no regards. Remember #MONSTER 5years later this classic is available on all platforms,Thanks for the love #RIPSETH ❤️🦅" The hashtag is a reference to Seth Firkins, Future's long-time engineer, who passed away in 2017.
Alongside Beast Mode and 56 Nights, Monster formed a trilogy of mixtapes released by Future and helped cement his place at the top of the rap game. The version of the album streaming online from today does deviate a little from the DatPiff original, however, appearing minus "Fuck Up Some Commas" and the DJ Esco producer tags.
