In case there was any doubt about just how big Future has become, the rapper lands the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone. During the interview, he avoids the subject of Desiigner, telling the journalist, “I never worried about anyone else … I don’t even want his name in the article.” They also touch on Future’s failed relationship with Ciara which followed the release of Future’s debut album Honest in short succession.
“I was scared as shit,” the rapper says, “I was one step away from being married, and I feel like I failed publicly in relationships. Then you want to go back to doing music, to what you know. And if the people didn’t accept you again, the one thing you feel like you can fall back on, it walked away from you. You feel like it’s over.” He added, “I remember Esco going, ‘You need to spend time in the studio and get back to creating. Block all that shit out. You going through a lot right now. Turn that shit into music, or it’s gonna get the best of you.’ Because everything’s popping up in the media. Every day, it’s something. It was getting bigger than my music.”
Despite everything that’s happened with Ciara (and her new boo Russell Wilson), Future says he just wants her to be happy. “Her being successful, her being happy, helps me,” he says.
