Future, who is also the executive producer of Kanye’s next album Donda 2, is no stranger to women and the problems relationships can bring. He used a handful of Ye’s most recent lyrics to demonstrate his point. Future and Kanye West have been sighted together several times recently.
Future claimed that he has known Kanye West for much longer than most people believe. He stated that he and Kanye West are much closer than the public realizes since he doesn’t publish everything on social media. In a new cover article for GQ, the executive producer of Donda 2 discussed his relationship with West, who is dubbed the “greatest rapper alive” by the publication.
Me and Kanye always had a relationship. But it’s hard for people to understand, because I don’t put everything on Instagram. Kanye flew me to Paris in 2011 or 2012 to work on music. [Discussing] his clothing line before it came, his shoe business before it came. People don’t know I’ve been able to go to his house, and pull up right into the crib. We just never talked about it.
West recently praised Future, describing him as the most influential musician of the previous ten years on the Drink Champs podcast in 2021. When asked how he felt about the compliment, Future said it reminded him of the aforementioned Paris vacation a decade ago.
When he said that, I understood why he called me to Paris, even though I didn’t understand it at that time. I understood why we had certain conversations. I understood him being a part of ‘I Won.’ Even him having me write on certain [Kanye] albums that people don’t even understand I wrote on.
Sometimes not getting credit when you write with him because the love of the art is…I want it to be right. Top tier. Just being able to create and put those textures over different music, and being involved with something like that. And then later down the line in a priceless moment, him saying what he said on Drink Champs. The value of that statement. The value of the relationship as it continues to grow, the value of just treating people like they are priceless, instead of treating people like they got a dollar sign on them every time.
Future is one of the most prominent figures in today’s Hip Hop sound. On 2.22.22, Donda 2 was dropped on the Stem Player App. Fans will anticipate music content from these two icons. Take a look at Future’s GQ cover below.
