Future says he never wanted to be in the same lane as OutKast, Goodie Mob.
During an appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club this week, Atlanta, Georgia rapper Future was again asked about his past relationship with singer Ciara. The musician specifically spoke on being asked about his breakup with the singer during his various appearances and interviews.
According to Future, following their separation, Ciara was hesitant to shut down any rumors about their breakup, specifically ones about him cheating on her. He then went on to explain that since a statement asking for privacy was never released from the singer, he’s had to share his side of the story.
“I anticipated it, but I just wanted to speak on my side,” Future said when asked about being questioned on his breakup. “It was my side of the story. And now I’m over it after I speak my side. Because she wasn’t telling the side. She was just letting it go along. Whatever the people thought about me, she wasn’t saying ‘Aye, don’t say that about him.’ When people they come together as a couple when you separate y’all put out a statement saying ‘Let us live our respectable lives. Leave us alone. We went our separate ways because of issues that we had. And we want everybody to keep our privacy.’ She just went along with the cheating rumors and never said anything. Issue a statement saying ‘Leave our personal life alone.’ And I wouldn’t have to say anything about it.”
Future also spoke on his upcoming Dirty Sprite 2 project, and later addressed regrets he had about his debut album, Pluto. In regards to Pluto, he says he could have done the album “a different way,” and saved records like “Turn On The Lights” and “Never End” for a later project.
“On Pluto—I wasn’t disappointed with Pluto, but I knew I could have did it a different way,” he said. “It wasn’t even the label because I feel like at the end of the day—Like right now, I’m not taking no advice. I did take advice before. You know what I’m saying? ‘Turn On The Lights’ it could have waited. ‘Turn On The Lights’ was a big record. It was the number one record. ‘Neva End’ was good for me, but I feel like I could have waited to the next album after that and introduced them to ‘Turn On The Lights’ and ‘Never End.’ Cause they was gonna be hits anyway whenever they came out…I had been put out the mixtapes. So, going into Pluto, instead of having ‘Parachute’ or a song like that, it was supposed to have been another street record.”
As the cousin of Dungeon Family producer Rico Wade, Future was asked if he ever wanted to be in the socially-conscious lane of an OutKast or Goodie Mob.
“I don’t feel like I was in that lane. I never wanted to be in the lane of OutKast and Goodie Mob. But most definitely I respect what they do. And I’ve learned a lot from them,” the rapper said.
