Future stopped by our office this afternoon say hello and bring some fresh news about his new album, DS2. The conversation ranged from his new no-feature policy (except for Drake) to his feelings on Ciara‘s new boyfriend Russell Wilson pushing Future’s son… in a stroller. The MC also talked about collaborating with Beyoncé and announced his plan to release another album before the end of 2015. Watch the interview above, and read the highlights below.
On features: “You gotta deal with so many egos and lawyers and such and such managers—you deal with 10 other people… I didn’t want to go through that again. I just wanted it to be all about me.”
On Pluto: “I wasn’t disappointed in Pluto, but I knew I could’ve made it a different way. Right now I’m not taking no advice. I did take advice before… You probably just want to do it your own way so you can feel comfortable and wake up and feel good about it at the end of the day.”
On his past issues with Drake: “We resolved the issue, we way past that. Back on the road, back doing music, shooting videos, OVO Fest on the way.”
On working with Drake on “Where Ya At:” “I wasn’t planning on having any features. [Drake] called the day I was about to turn the album in. I was like, ‘I gotta turn the album in in the morning.’ He was like, ‘Dirty Sprite 2? That’s legend, I loved Dirty Sprite, I wanna be a part of this.’ I was like, ‘man, dope, do the verse tonight, I’m gonna send the song over.’ He was like, ‘done.’”
On young rappers like Young Thug and Fetty Wap: “I don’t feel like they took my sound. I probably inspired it.”
On Ciara: “I ain’t thinking about her, I swear. I want her to be totally happy. People think I’m bitter cause she moved on. I’m good! I’m taking care of me. I don’t need him—she need him.”
