Future released his new album High Off Life last night featuring appearances from Drake, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert NBA YoungBoy and more.
The Freebandz leader called into Apple Music to chat with Zane Lowe about the project, the various collaborations, where he’s at currently from a creative perspective, possibility of doing a part 2 of What A Time To be Alive with Drake, giving props to younger artists like Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert, and more.
At one point, Future revealed that he goes through so many emotions that he will be able to express them all in a book and a film that are on the way. “Man, it’s so many emotions that you can say how I feel. There’s so many feelings that go into that moment of my life, man, it’s hard to explain those type of moments, you know what I’m saying? Be able to give that to the world,” he said. “Right now I got my book I’m working on, my movie I’m working on, they’re going to be able to find on Netflix,” the Atlanta rapper added.
Watch the clip above. When it came to the question of What A Time To be Alive pt. 2, he was firm on not giving a clear answer.
Regarding his own music, Future said, “they’re like treasures. I look at my music like treasures, like a treasure hunt is going to be able to find it no way, no matter where you go. If I told you, you would have to sign papers. If I told you, then you would have that sign confidentiality papers. That’s how rare this sh*t is.”
He also addressed releasing music in these unprecedented times we’re living in at the moment. “But at the end of the day, when it’s a classic, people are going to be able to identify it and they go back through time and they’re going to be able to listen to it 20 years from now and be like, that’s a great body of music and be able to accept it on their own time. That’s why it’s a classic. In due time, it’ll be something special to everyone, but it just was bad timing for us, but it was great music. And I don’t get mad at that because I’m a creative… I continue to create. I feed off that and I understand the ways of the world and how the laws of the universe work. And that’s what make you, that don’t define you. That’s just a part of your history book, you know what I’m saying?”
Future also praised Travis Scott and his artistic taste. “It’s just expensive. It’s just being a expensive, like having expensive taste. Yeah, that’s a good collaboration. That’s a good collaboration. It’s it just about being expensive, just having expensive taste. Artistically, Travis, he’s on another level when it comes to being artistic and everything. Like, his whole vision, being engaged, the artwork and just the core craft.Yeah. He knows what he’s doing.”
