On Oct. 19, 2018 rappers Future and Juice WRLD released their album WRLD ON DRUGS. The genres this album falls under are hip-hop or rap, from which many greats have come over the last year, such as TABOO by Denzel Curry, ASTROWORLD by Travis Scott, and iridescence by BROCKHAMPTON. My first expectations when going into the album were quite low, as I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed a solo album from either artist, but when I first listened to it, I was impressed by the first three songs.

Future was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. When he was still quite young, he changed to his name Future, which was given to him by The Dungeon Family. He released his first album on April 16, 2011, titled Pluto. Future has been on the rapper scene for quite a while. He has been a well-known rapper for about five years. Juice WRLD, on the other hand, is a rapper who is just breaking onto the scene as his first album, Goodbye & Good Riddance, was released earlier this year with the hit song “Lucid Dreams.” This mix is better than any album or song they have released.

There really is no overall theme for this album, unlike Juice WRLD’s first album, Goodbye & Good Riddance, which has the theme of being about heartbreak. The lyrics in the album are very similar to that of a SoundCloud rapper, which Juice WRLD is considered. A SoundCloud rapper is classified as a rapper who mumbles his words in his songs. Future, on the other hand, does not mumble, but he does use a lot of autotune in his songs. The lyrics are very different throughout the album, creating no main theme, but the lyrics in their respective songs flow well. An example of the lyrics from the song “Fine China” is, “Shorty like a thousand dollar plate, fine china. Tell her that she beautiful every day, I remind her.” These refer to the way Juice is treating his woman like an expensive piece of china.

The tracks that stand out in my opinion are “Fine China,” “Astronauts,” “Oxy (feat. Lil Wayne),” and “7 Am Freestyle.” The tracks that, in my opinion, don’t stand out are, “Ain’t Livin Right,” “Transformer,” and “Hard Work Pays Off.” This album compares okay to others in the genre, but albums like TABOO, ASTROWORLD, and Imperial are overall better albums.

Overall, I would give the album a 6 out of 10, as the beginning part of the album is great, but then the album sags off towards the end.
