Auto-tuned emcee/singer Future has blazed a trail for himself with his style of coke-rapping, cut with triumphant, romantic crowing. His choice of beat is either smooth and affective or hard knocking and fresh. Originally introduced to the world sounding like a cross between Lil Wayne and a neo-R&B singer, Future reuses some techniques from his Pluto debut album for this Honest follow up and even adds a few new ones. Even though this album may have fewer memorably-classic singles than the previous album, Honest still has plenty of Future's signature style and swagger. Loaded with big name guest artists and Future's one of a kind flavor, Honest proves to be a fair yet predictable sophomore.
