Future Is Unbothered on New Album ‘I Never Liked You’

Two years after releasing High Off Life, Future returns with I Never Liked You with appearances from Kanye West, Drake, Gunna and more.

GQ‘s crowned ‘Best Rapper Alive’ is here. On Friday, Future released his ninth studio album with features from Drake (“Wait for It” and “I’m On One”), Kanye West (“Keep It Burnin”), Kodak Black (“Voodoo”) and more. With production from TM88, ATL Jacob, Southside and others, the album comes just two years after Future’s platinum-selling album High Off Life and his Pluto x Baby Pluto collaborative album with Lil Uzi Vert. Just in time for I Never Liked You, Future has delivered the Ye-assisted music video for “Keep It Burnin.

After serving as executive producer for Ye’s latest album DONDA 2, Future spoke with GQ about working closely with Ye and being complimented by him on Drink Champs last year.

“Sometimes not getting credit when you write with him because the love of the art is…I want it to be right. Top tier. Just being able to create and put those textures over different music, and being involved with something like that,” And then later down the line in a priceless moment, him saying what he said on Drink Champs. The value of that statement. The value of the relationship as it continues to grow, the value of just treating people like they are priceless, instead of treating people like they got a dollar sign on them every time.”

On July 23rd, Future is set to headline Rolling Loud Miami at Hard Rock Stadium. Limited tickets are available.
