Future Talks Drake, Nicki Minaj, & André 3000 in CRWN Interview

Future

With his album Honest in stores, Future sat down with Elliott Wilson in his hometown of Atlanta earlier this week for his CRWN interview series. The self-proclaimed “king of turn up” discussed everything from his relationship with fiancée Ciara to his many collaborators including Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, who he worked with on “Rockstar Life.”

While the record didn’t make his album because George Michael did not approve the sample, he still wants to release it in the future, possibly on the Freeband Gang compilation.

He also revealed how he inspired Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and how they mended their issues to collaborate on “Never Satisfied.” “It’s bigger than that for me. It’s always been about the music,” said Future.

He once again addressed the confusion surrounding Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love.” He was in the studio with Detail, who asked him to help out with the record, which inspired his Honest outtake “Good Morning.” He planned to put that on his album in November, but Beyoncé beat him to it and released her surprise album in December.

“It was already pre-wrote and I started doing the melodies,” said Future. “We did the record eight months before she put it out.”

Plus, he shed light on his “Benz Friendz (Watchutola)” collaboration with André 3000 and what it was like for him to share the stage with OutKast at Coachella. “Dancing around and just performing with my favorite group of all time, it was unreal,” said Future.

    I love future, imma true fan #100 but that whole Beyonce thing he seemed upset about….and I think part of that is Ciara. Now usually y’all know that artists dick ride Bey but he went against the smart artist grain. Dissing Beyonce ruins careers…see chapter Keri Hilson. I’m not saying that what he did, but it was close….then he shaded Jay…like I guess neither of those things were his intentions…but when he said,” I got songs with J.Lo…[pand all these artists]” Its almost like he wanted to be on the song..
