I hate Final Fantasy XIII with a passion but this time I'm going to overlook that because the story told here is greater than anything that Daisuke Watanabe could have ever dreamed of.
DJ DAX brings us without a doubt one of the most well thought out concept albums of this year with #FutureFantasy. Sampling the Final Fantasy XIII soundtrack, DJ DAX aggressive rhyme style and extremely well thought out lyrics takes us into a personal journey of a man balancing his place in this world with his faith and his relationships with the characters of FFXIII. One song in particular that impressed me was "Struck" which starts off as a love ballad to Lightning that's so well done that I'm starting to believe she's real with mellow production from JairTheShadow & DJ-KGIZZY it strikes the perfect tone. "Azure Soul" wouldn't be out of place in any upscale lounge with a laid back groove while speaking on his one true love.
Though the use of Traditional Boom Bap, Electro, Trap and Lounge DJ DAX weaves a complete story that any fan of hip-hop or even FFXIII could enjoy as the Main Character finally succeeds and for a bonus boss battle get to fight Sephiroth.
