(AllHipHop News) For many years, Future rarely gave interviews. The last few weeks have seen the Atlanta-raised music artist sit down with several outlets. However, it was his own FREEBANDZ RADIO episode that led to the most talk online.
During the show, the man born Nayvadius Wilburn shared his thoughts on his ex-girlfriend Ciara, their child Future, and her husband Russell Wilson. Future's "he do exactly what she tell him to do... he not being a man in that position" comment rubbed some people the wrong way. Atlanta's Hot 107.9 caught up with Future, and the rhymer addressed his previous statement.
"We don't have no problems," insisted Future when asked about Wilson. "It's a social media problem. No, I don't hate him. Totally not the deal. It was just the way we were carrying it, as far as being handled with Baby Future. I don't have nothing against him, and I'm happy for them."
The conversation also included Future discussing Jay-Z's infamous bars on the 4:44 track "Kill Jay-Z" where the Hip Hop legend made a reference to NFL quarterback Russell Wilson raising Baby Future. "I don't even know what you woulda done, in the future other n*ggas playing football with your son," rapped Hov on the song.
Future recalled, "When I talked to him, [Jay-Z said], 'I didn't mean to say that... I didn't mean it like that.' I was just like, 'You supposed to be biggin' up the rap community. You need to let the NFL deal with the NFL. You supposed to be biggin' up me. We come from the trenches. I come from the streets. You come from the streets. You supposed to be biggin' me up. You not supposed to be giving that no negative attention for a hot line.'"
The Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd album creator added, "It is what it is. I ain't even tripping off [Jay]. I'm trying to get where I'm going and ain't nobody gonna stop me. Whatever's going on - the talking, the captions, the memes - it can't stop me cause it's a vision that I have and it's goals that I have set out for myself that I gotta get done no matter what."
