Future Talks Ciara Split & Fatherhood
As of late, Future has been breaking records and topping charts while still remaining true to himself, and his artistry. While Future is getting prepared to launch his 35-date U.S. tour alongside fellow Atlanta natives Migos and Young Thug, the father of five, found some time to discuss the Grammy’s, being a better person, and how he finds inspiration for his music. Peep more of what he had to say below.
On why he refers to himself as Future Hendrix:
The melodies I come up with, they’re not normal. Every black person wasn’t playing the guitar — Hendrix did something special.
On how he sets himself a part and remains true to himself:
If I’m the biggest artist in the world, cool, but I want to just be me. I want my money to be different. I’m not trying to have rapper money. My goal is to be able to get everything from the world that I can get.
On his feeling towards not receiving a Grammy nomination:
The Grammys, they get what they get – the shit that they don’t, it’s the shit that they maybe don’t want to understand. They’re not going to keep me from doing what I’m supposed to do as an artist.
Being the “provider” for his children:
I’m the motherf—ing provider. That’s what God put me here for. Everybody ride what they want to ride, dress how they want to dress, live how they want to live.
On how he finds inspiration:
Use everything around you to create: good, bad, negative, whatever it is. Never be afraid to be exactly who you are.
On how he makes music relatable:
Draco and the book bag, that’s from real life. But being able to take that and make it where it’s not so violent? It can connect to more people. You don’t own a Draco, and you like it, right?
On his take on a different direction in his sound:
I’m opening you up to where I’m at. It’s about being vulnerable and not so cautious about what you say as far as your love life — if you was hurt or happy or in love.
His remarks toward his broken off engagement to singer, Ciara:
I feel like everything happened for a reason. I’m happy with life now. I’m happy with life, period, even with the end of a relationship being…I’m just not going to settle for anything, you know? Even in my life now, I know I can be a better person. I ain’t giving up on myself, so if you give up on me, I ain’t got nothing else to say for you. Because if you give up on something that’s real, it wasn’t real to you.
On hinting at “hanging” out with female celebrities:
What the people don’t understand is, I been kicking it with superstars when it comes to females for a minute – on the low-low with nobody don’t know-know.
On his feelings towards Trump:
I ain’t even rocking with that shit, you dig what I’m saying? I don’t even want that name in my interview.
