What do you get when you put Future and Giorgio Armani in a new Bugatti? That’s precisely what GQ Style reveals in its second issue ever.
Future, Armani, and Bugatti have some bonds. After all, Future has a 2013 hit named “Bugatti” and Armani just designed a line of clothing with Bugatti. But their connection goes even further, according to the legendary designer.
“I know how much [Future] suffers to be where he is,” said the 82-year-old. “He’s suffered just like I’ve suffered. So…we’re friends in a way.”
Future concurs. “He’s seen all kinds of artists over the years. He can basically just look at you and tell,” he added. “Sometimes I get nervous about being accepted by people like him, because you never know. But some way my walk of life and his walk of life have connected.”
This meeting of the minds will no doubt inspire new music, according to the prolific Freebandz boss. “My music like a diary,” he explained. “I use every experience. He’s the top designer in the world. I’m the top rapper in the world. Some hits are going to come from this experience for sure.”
The photos, shot at Armani’s home in Milan, show Future styling in custom designs from Armani’s capsule collection with Bugatti while standing in front of a shiny black Bugatti Chiron, priced at $2.6 million. Their friendship is also seen in a black-and-white photo where they are locked, arm in arm, as they walk. In another flick, they share matching smiles in shades.
