 Pitchfork cited it as a turning point in “How Future Rewrote Rap in His Own Image” and wrote, Monster has a single feature, intensifying the feeling that it is Future against the world. It also notably yielded the double-platinum smash “Fuck Up Some Commas, which vaulted on to the Billboard Hot 100, and spawned the fan favorite “Codeine Crazy. In a piece entitled “Mixtapes That Need To Be Added To Streaming Services Next, Complex exclaimed, “it’s hard to believe that the rap game isn’t better because of it.”

Monster notably ignited his second and latest chapter.

It would be the turning point of his career and one of the most important mixtapes ever. The re-release paves the way for his other game-changing mixtapes to also potentially see official release.

Get ready.
