Future’s latest interview with Zane Lowe is raw and personal. The rapper talks about everything from his upcoming album, HNDRXX, to his role as a father that involves checks and balances.
“HNDRXX is super personal,” Future tells Zane. “This is the Honest album that I was supposed to be honest about,” he adds. “This is me opening up and just letting it all out so I can just move past it.”
In the spirit of openness, Future delves into his perspective of balancing the work-father dynamic. “You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids,” he says. “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.”
Still, “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.”
