Dirty Sprite 2 brushes aside the pop overtures of Future's sophomore album Honest. Building off a powerful three-mixtape comeback run, DS2 is bleak and unforgiving, a redemption story for a man who is certain it’s too late for his soul to be redeemed; instead of a triumphal arc, we burrow deeper and deeper into Future’s dystopian universe. The same week Future announced the release date for Dirty Sprite 2, his third official retail release, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft completed the first-ever flyby of Pluto. Its data has been revealing the dwarf planet as an icy, complicated world, still in geological flux, marked by a bright, heart-shaped feature in the center of much darker terrain.
Future - Dirty Sprite 2. July 27, 2015 8:00 AM. by Sheldon Pearce. Revisionist historians have written off his sophomore album, 2014’s Honest, as a flop, but there was never really any sizable drop off in quality or chart success; instead, there was merely a drastic change in perception, one that saw Future recast as the premier rap romantic, which came with weightier expectations. Following the success of rap ballads Turn Off The Lights and Neva Eva, contributions on Rihanna’s Loveeeeeee Song and Ciara’s Body Party (Remix), and a short-lived relationship with the latter, Future embraced becoming a rap balladeer.

by Christopher Robbins July 20, 2015 9:19 am. Dirty Sprite 2, Stream Of Consciousness. We are living in the Future ! Not like the future of the world or anything like that, but rather the energy-based, drug-induced, codeine lullabies sung by the rapper Future.
DS2' isn't so much a return to form as an elevation of form. Future has never sounded so good. DS2 has been positioned, along with the three mixtapes preceding it, as a return to form, a reintroduction to Future as the street artist who made tapes like the original Dirty Sprite. It certainly never feels like anything less than exactly what Future wanted to make: While pretty much every song on it has a decent shot at being a hit on rap radio (good luck to the rest of Atlanta getting on Hot 10. this summer), there's nothing remotely verging on pop crossover.

DS2 is short for Dirty Sprite 2, his 2011 breakthrough mixtape, but it's not a sequel as much a course correction. Future's first two studio albums - 2012's Pluto and last year's Honest, recorded during his courtship of Ciara - were thick with A-list guests and songs that vied for crossover success, pushing shiny, happy roles he played well but never quite relished. He even released a gleaming love song ("Real and True") with Miley Cyrus in 2013. Yes, Future started this album off by having sex with a girl while wearing designer sandals.
Future's long-awaited third album, DS2, is here. After releasing three solid mixtapes including Monster, Beast Mode, and 56 Nights over the last year, Future elected to continue riding his Ferris wheel of success by releasing a cohesive opus. Since announcing the release date for DS2 - Dirty Sprite 2 for the uniformed - last week, he has been flooding the web with content.
