Future On Being Dubbed the “Male Beyonce”: ‘I Want To Use My Voice To Empower Like She Does’

Published: Thursday 17th Jan 2019 by Rashad

Is Future the male “Beyonce“?  Apparently somebody we’re not quite sure who somewhere thinks so.  In fact, so much so the 35-year-old – heavy on the promo trail in support of his January 18th-due new album, ‘The Wizrd’ – was recently quizzed on how the comparison makes him feel as he takes steps toward “empowering men” with his new music.

Despite earning quite the tongue-lashing from detractors for recently admitting he kept his decision to quit lean a secret as it may have impacted how his fans, affectionately called “The FutureHive” (much like Bey’s “BeyHive”), would have responded, Future’s confident that his newfound approach to making music is designed to uplift the fellas.

Taking to The Fader to discuss this and more recently, look inside to hear how he feels when people call him men’s answer to his ‘Top Off’ co-star, his mentoring relationship to Young Thug, how he doesn’t let his children listen to his music, and so much more:

On Beyonce comparisons:

“Beyonce is one of the greatest.  To be compared to that is great!  Also, I want to be able to use my voice for a lot of good in men and not just the bad, not just when you going through a breakup or just want to have a party lifestyle. I’m speaking for the men who going through something.

I want to speak for men in relationships, in love, have found true love, and have gone through something and thought they weren’t going to become the person that they are but [after listening] to Future became a better person.  I don’t want to make your wrongs right anymore. I want to shed light on the right. 

I want to be that voice how her voice is as someone who is empowering women, I want to empower men with that same power in the right way.

On why he admitted he’s no longer doing drugs:

“I created off negativity. It always fuel my fire. I just feed into it, and that’s where I get my best ideas from, by making something negative and turning it into my positive, by making music from it and having success from it,” he explains. “But the burden becomes I gotta keep living this way and keep living every line, every day. And it’s just like that’s not who I am anymore.”

On how sobriety and empowerment impact his future recordings:

“The way I think and that not caring mentality, I carried on into music, into business, into the way I move. it’s just time to stop that. It’s like it’s an end. Like, you not in the streets anymore. It’s over. That’s your past life,” the ATL trap legend declares.

    Chile cheese… Nobody want “empowerment “ from Future. Fkn women unprotected, drinking lean, and making mediocre music is not empowering in any way, shape, or form…
