Future Discusses Ciara, Music + Dirty Sprite (The Drink) In New Interview
Although the “Fuck Up Some Commas” superstar currently resides in a $2 million mansion in an Atlanta suburb, home for Future really seems to be the studio. “All I know is record, record, record, record,” the artist states in the interview. Creating music is a catharsis for Future, especially when the rapper was simultaneously dealing with his relationship with Ciara and the release of his second studio album Honest, which wasn’t well-received.
“I was scared as shit,” he explains. “I was one step away from being married, and I feel like I failed publicly in relationships. Then you want to go back to doing music, to what you know. And if the people didn’t accept you again, the one thing you feel like you can fall back on, it walked away from you. You feel like it’s over.”
Then came his incredible comeback: Monster, DS2 and What A Time To Be Alive, his collaborative project with Drake. Now the rapper sounds like he’s in a better place, even stating that he wishes the best for her. “Her being successful, her being happy, helps me,” he says. “I’m attached to you. If you’re happy, I’m happy. You’re connected for life. I don’t want you to go through this shit and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation.”
However, one of the most revealing parts of the story is when Future discusses his childhood. He recalls heating his house with a stove and eating uncooked Spaghettios from a can, as well as being robbed at his grandma’s house. “…some robbers came in and kicked in the door,” he says. “At the time it wasn’t even traumatic. I come from that kind of family. I had to get over it.”
The interview also touches on his love for lean (the codeine-and-soda concoction that he refers to as “Dirty Sprite”) and strippers, as well as his thoughts (or lack thereof) on “Panda” rapper Desiigner.
