Future Is Under Fire For Stance On Parenting
(AllHipHop Rumors) Right before dropping his second album in under two weeks, Future got candid with Zane Lowe on Beats 1.
Future is really pleased with the way he was able to put out as much music as he did back-to-back, and he expressed his excitement about being able to give fans another part of him, which is Future HNDRXXX.
Future says his latest album was the “real honest” album as back in 2014, he was just using the title. Now Future says he’s actually able to be open and honest in his music.
His music wasn’t the only thing he was honest about. He also opened up about fatherhood.
Future explained that he’s able to make so much music, because he’s addicted to creating it, and addicted to the studio. The only problem is his addiction keeps him away from his children, Prince, Londyn, and Future Zahir at times.
Future came under fire for saying his children have to understand that they have to sacrifice some things and some time spent because they have a superstar father. Most would believe that Future would say that he actually had to sacrifice some career-related things to BE a better father. The kids didn’t ask to be here.
“You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids. You have to just do music and you’re becoming this entertainer and so many people require so much of your time for different things, different obligations you have to make money, or just different obligations you have as a person in whatever the situation may be. You gotta leave town and miss out on certain things, that you feel like you should be there. Like, your dad should be a part of this moment. I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’ My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad. My career choice is my career choice. Just stepping out of that zone, to be able to be a provider. I understand my position as a provider and my role as a dad also…Just being able to be comfortable with it. Everybody wanna be a super dad and the best dad ever but sometimes, I’m just realizing that I’m not perfect,” said Future.
Maybe Future meant well, and just expressed it wrong, because there are plenty of celebrity parents that have made sure to be there often for their children. Future stated that he understands that fatherhood is more than being a provider, but do you think he really gets it? Some even felt like Future was using being an entertainer as an excuse to be an absentee father. What are your thoughts?
