"My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad" - Future
During his most recent interview with Zane Lowe, Future predicted that one song on HNDRXX could be the subject of controversy. No song has yet caused as much controversy as the moment later in the same interview when he confessed that he is “obsessed with making music” and “addicted to the studio," and that his music addiction comes at the cost of his relationship with his children.
The full quote:
“You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids. 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. I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’ 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.”
Twitter has been steady roasting Future since the interview dropped. See the most severe roasts below:
