Future “March Madness”


In a year of unfettered violence on black bodies, we’re constantly reminded that life can be taken away at any second, by anyone, for any reason, or for none at all. It’s shocking and depressing, but Future’s “March Madness” bundles up all those feelings and throws them back at you.

The song is a tour de force, so emotionally powerful that Future has to bring it back just as the song begins to fade out because he knows its impact. “We ballin’ like March Madness/All these cops shootin’ niggas, tragic.” Those lines might not make sense next to each until you remember that one day we’re here, and the next, we’re gone.
