Future’s Pluto x Baby Pluto Album
Following mounted anticipation, Atlanta rapper Future and Uzi hit the green light on their new Pluto x Baby Pluto project heading into Friday. The project comes with nearly 20 songs and executive production by producer DJ Esco.
Clocking in at just under an hour, the project consists of 16 tracks with no guest features. The two also shared an accompanying music video for “That’s It” directed by the revered Hype Williams. The visual sees the pair either working with an all-girls soccer team and in a rainforest. The album was first teased in July 2020 with another Williams-directed teaser that showed the pair talking about the economic ramifications of COVID-19 outside a laundromat. Two months later, Future and Uzi dropped another teaser trailer of their joint “Another Planet.” (HYPEBEAST)
