Despite dropping Beast Mode 2 and WRLD On DrugsFuture‘s 2018 output was rather quiet compared to past years. But if you ask him, it was all by design.

“In 2018 I just didn’t want to do anything,” Future revealed to Zane Lowe in a recent interview. “Five years I was on the road. Four or five tours all across the world, just doing it two, three times back to back. Soon as I get off a tour I got to go on another tour in two weeks, go on another tour. I never get a chance to vacation. I never get a chance to go nowhere, so 2018 was my first time going different places, and trying different, new experiences, and staying places over two weeks.”

Fully recharged and ready for another explosive year, Future kicks things off with his new album, The WIZRD.

“My uncle used to always call me ‘the wizard,’ Future revealed to Genius’ Rob Markman. “Rest in peace, but that was his thing. He called me ‘the wizard’ and it was just showing love to him and dedicating the album to him and the name that he respected and I feel like I’ve worked for. I’ve worked to become everything he’s seeing before it even happened.”

“It’s just me bridging the gap between when I first came out to where I’m at right now,” he continued. “If you was following me from the beginning to now, you’ll be able to see the growth, you’ll be able to hear the growth. You’ll be able to distinguish the sounds.”

Led by “Crushed Up” and “Jumpin On a Jet,” the album is packed with 20 songs and a few contributions from Young Thug, Gunna and Travis Scott.
