To say Future had a good year would be an understatement. Future had a once-in-a-lifetime year (although, knowing his drive, it's one that could very well be repeated), one in which everything lined up perfectly, in which, as he says on "Kno the Meaning," hard work caught up with perfect timing. He was simultaneously the year's most prolific, artistically innovative, critically acclaimed, and consistent rapper of note. He broke through on a new level commercially and crossed over to a new audience courtesy of his joint album with Drake. He had the hottest songs. But we've explained all of that ad nauseum in the rest of our year-end coverage.
This track is Future running full speed from the demons that chase him toward the happiness he seeks and that’s always just out of his grasp. It's the perfect conclusion to the mixtape trilogy, providing closure to this chapter of a story that's still just beginning. – Trey Smith
“Trap Niggas” might contain the greatest image in any Future song this year: the hustler waking up to grab his piece before he even brushes his teeth. It also has one of the best lines: “God blessin’ all the trap niggas.” Think about it: If Jesus walked the earth in 2015 he would minister to the bandos, not the board rooms. The apostle Nayvadius be knowing. – Craig Jenkins
