Metro and Future will be going on tour across the country throughout late summer and early fall.

Rap artists Future and Metro Boomin released the awaited “We Still Don’t Trust You,” the sequel to their Billboard 200-topping album, “We Don’t Trust You.” 

Consisting of 25 tracks, the album initially teases a shift towards pop and R&B but quickly reverts to their signature rap style, though with mixed results.

“I loved the idea that two of the biggest rappers in the industry were making back to back albums. Metro and Future is a collaboration that I think a lot of rap fans like and in my opinion, the features were on point in both albums,” said Yahshua Nazareth (‘25).

We Don’t Trust You

In their first collaboration, Future and Metro Boomin delivered an impactful album that resonated with audiences, topping charts and setting a high bar for future projects. The album showcased their chemistry and set a standard for collaborative efforts in the hip-hop genre.

“‘We Don’t Trust You’ is really good and the songs were amazing. Not only did the album give us a consistent flow of music, but started one of the largest beefs in rap history. The Kendrick Lamar verse on ‘Like That’ gave us a good interest in the field for a while,” said Vivaan Sharma (‘25).

We Still Don’t Trust You

However, “We Still Don’t Trust You” fails to live up to its expectations. Despite standout tracks like “Right 4 You” and “All to Myself,” the album’s excessive length and lack of diverse beats result in a frustrating listening experience. This led to underwhelming results which overshadows moments of brilliance scattered throughout the album. 

“I feel like this album had more it could have done in comparison to its previous album. The first album set this one up and it kinda failed, but just by itself, I think this album can grow on a variety of audiences,” said Dhanush Gowda (‘25).

Spicing up the rap game even further, the album includes a diss against Drake, further highlighting its pros. Despite boasting an impressive lineup of collaborators and over 40 new tracks, “We Still Don’t Trust You” falls short of expectations, ultimately serving as little more than a passable playlist for casual listening.
