‘Real Sisters’ hitmaker Future is keeping it all the way real in the forthcoming issue of XXL, which he also covers. Dishing on everything from his new Drake-assisted album (set to hit #1 on next week’s Billboard 200) to the ‘Brand New’ beau’s aging beef with Meek Mill, the Atlantan emcee doesn’t exactly bite his tongue nor back down from topics thrown his way.
His brazenness is particularly notable when asked about ex Ciara. After seeing his previous requests for the diva to leave their son out of her relationship with footballer Russell Wilson, the rapper is bringing his disdain for the duo back to light in his latest mag appearance – even calling her “evil” for ignoring his requests.
“I want to be involved 100 percent in all decisions made. This my flesh and blood. If I don’t want him to do something, there’s supposed to [be a] compromise or we supposed to talk about it,” he added. “You not supposed to just go behind my back and do it. This is my son, too.” – Future
That’s not all he had to say. Tuck in below to get his full fiery quote:
ON SPLITTING PARENTING
“I want to be able to judge him for myself. I want to judge the nannies that’s around my child. I don’t want to pay for a nanny that I never met, that I never got a chance to interview. That’s not the life I want for my child. I want to be involved 100 percent in all decisions made. This my flesh and blood. If I don’t want him to do something, there’s supposed to [be a] compromise or we supposed to talk about it. You not supposed to just go behind my back and do it. This is my son, too.”
ON CIARA HAVING THEIR SON, FUTURE, AROUND HER NEW BOYFRIEND, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS QUARTERBACK RUSSELL WILSON
“I’m telling you right now, I’m giving you two sides. Like, I’m cool with it. I’m cool with him being around him but certain situations, we all in the public eye, you can’t move around with my son a certain kind of way, you know what I’m saying? I feel like a lot of moves are just made out of just being evil, basically. Because, you know, the success of my album and you still want to make certain moves to take the spotlight off me a little bit and shed light on a negative situation. Why would you want to put light on a negative situation? Even if I didn’t care about it, the people have a way of looking at it. Why would you want to give these people an opinion on our kid? Why won’t we just let our child be a child?”
ON HIS FRIENDSHIPS WITH MEEK MILL AND DRAKE
“On some real shit, I love Meek. And the Drake situation, I feel like genuinely we’ve been building a great relationship over these years. We got history together. We went on a few tours together so it was like, publicly, some things was said and it was took out of context. And even with the situation coming out, we put it all behind us, went on a sold out tour and we built from that and I feel like it’s genuine, it’s authentic and we built trust between each other. So with trust it’s just bringing us closer because in this industry, as you get bigger, I feel like you lose trust for everyone around you. You feel like the people you come in contact with, you can’t trust them. So I feel like it had to happen over years, that couldn’t happen over a few months.”
Look for the issue when it hits newsstands September 28th.
