56 Nights is a mixtape by Future. It was released on March 21, 2015. Along with Monster and Beast Mode, it is considered one of "a trilogy of album-quality mixtapes" that Future released following Honest. The mixtape is entirely produced by members of 808 Mafia, particularly Southside and hosted by Future.
In 2014, DJ Esco was sentenced to jail for 56 days for possessing 15 grams of marijuana in Dubai where he traveled to perform with Future at the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Esco was arrested then taken to the police station where there is no English being spoken, Esco quotes, "There's no judge, no jury. They assign you to a prosecutor, and the prosecutor can just do what he wants." Being an American Esco still has the mindset that he is going to get up the next day and be bailed out, but he claims it doesn't work like that in Abu Dhabi so they tell him, "Grab some extra clothes because you're gonna be here for a couple of days". He gets in and is the only American out of everyone in the jail with all types of people from Pakistanis, Saudis, Afghans, Kuwaitis, Iranians all the way to some Africans like Somalis, Nigerians, and Egyptians. Esco spends 56 nights in the jail learning the cultures and languages of the different people in there becoming closer with some of the inmates and even the warden by the end of his time there. The warden ultimately took a liking toward him teaching him some things about Islam which helped their relationship grow in the end helping Esco get out of jail. Future and DJ Esco were inspired to release the mixtape after the producer was released from prison.All tracks are featuring Future.
