Future and Metro Boomin unveil 'WE DON'T TRUST YOU'

Future et Metro Boomin dévoile 'WE DON'T TRUST YOU'

In their latest collaborative project, "WE DON'T TRUST YOU", Future and Metro Boomin attempt to recapture the essence of the event albums that have marked the history of rap. This duo, known for their major contributions to the genre, aspires to revive the memorable moments of rap, those that incited a frantic race to the computer to not be left behind. The album, described as a vengeful and stylish work, seeks to create a new landmark moment in the industry.

Future and Metro Boomin , two of rap's biggest hitmakers of the last decade, officially unite for the first time, although fans will recognize echoes of past collaborations like DS2 in this album. Their pairing aims to evoke memories of past successes while exploring new avenues, although the album tends toward a safer, more conservative approach.

Metro Boomin, in particular, continues to explore the cinematic evolution of his Southern trap roots, as evidenced by his 2022 solo album, "Heroes & Villains," and the soundtrack to "Spider-Man: Across the Spider." -Pour.” This influence is felt in "WE DON'T TRUST YOU" , where the production, smooth and impeccable, is punctuated with spectacular beat changes and orchestral touches.

However, despite these grandiose elements, the album manages to maintain the authenticity and idiosyncrasies that characterize the trap sound, thanks to Metro's ability to integrate these extravagances in a more natural way than other recent productions. Tracks like “Ice Attack” and “Type Shit” stand out, providing moments of lyrical brilliance and memorable collaboration.

Future, for his part, seems reinvigorated, moving away from recurring supervillain themes to embrace livelier bars and more nuanced narratives. The album, while cutting back on vocals and character work, nevertheless captures the sinister and seductive atmosphere that is Future's trademark.

Despite its merits, "WE DON'T TRUST YOU" raises questions about its timing and relevance in today's rap context, where nostalgia for Atlanta trap of the past two decades is experiencing renewed interest. Future and Metro seem unsure of what the world expects of them, opting for a project that is more about evoking the past than forging new memories.

In conclusion, "WE DON'T TRUST YOU" is an album which, while at times successful, leaves the feeling of a missed opportunity to truly redefine the present moment of rap. It remains to be seen whether this historic collaboration between Future and Metro Boomin will be remembered as a defining moment or simply a pleasant reminder of a bygone era.
