Future & Metro Boomin’s ‘We Don’t Trust You’: All 17 Tracks Ranked

We should’ve put the pieces together during the rollout. Future and Metro Boomin both in suits like the Reservoir Dogs, meeting up in the desert as a Prodigy clip plays. This project has always been about addressing their fractured relationship with the rap game and other rappers — mainly Drake — while also reminding the game that Future is in the conversation as one of the absolute best of this era. There’s also Metro’s place in all of this. Since 2018’s NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES, he has continued to raise the bar as far as his production goes. He’s entering another stratosphere, and is starting to establish himself as rap’s top producer.

This entire project feels like a movie in audio form. Every beat is cinematic, and the late, great Prodigy serves as its unflappable narrator, steady reminding us what this rap thing is really about: competition. It’s also a nice coincidence that this project was released the same week as the 41st anniversary of hip-hop’s seminal motion picture masterpiece, Wild Style. WE DON’T TRUST YOU is 17 tracks long and there are no skips. This is a ride best taken at dusk, as the sun starts to disappear behind the horizon.

We tried to rank every track while breaking everything down, mere hours after this album melted our brains with all the haymakers being thrown over some of the best beats your ears have heard this year. These are two artists at the very top of their craft, providing rap fans art and history in real time. We’ll be talking about this record for a long time — and the duo supposedly dropping another tape soon.

Check out our rankings below while we run this album back again.
