New Sounds: Future

According to the brief bio on his MySpace page, Nashville rapper Future has been searching for the right sound – first dabbling with “conscious rap” à la Kanye West, and settling now on the sparse, electro sound of acts like N.E.R.D. and Outkast. And while there are several solid examples of the latter style, it’s this house-heavy song “Grow Old With You” that really gets me going. My two cents: follow Dizzee Rascal’s lead with more club-ready rap tracks. Worked well for him...
