Future “put everything out there” on his new album.
The 33-year-old rapper unveiled his sixth studio LP late last month and wanted to be as real as possible with it.
He said: “On ‘Hndrxx’, I just put everything out there, I put everything on the line. I’ve got to be who I am. I’d rather for them to know who I am than for me to fake the person that I’m not. I’d rather take a chance on me than gamble on something that’s not me …
“I’ve been sad before, so why not make something that’s sad? If people in their life are sad, it’s not a bad thing. They can relate, like, ‘Damn, he feel like I was feeling.’ You feel like you’re not alone. You can relate to the poorest person on earth. They can feel like they’re not alone in this and they feel like I’ve either been through this or I’m a great-ass storyteller.”
And the ‘Used to This’ hitmaker wants to “go for the impossible” to show others it is important to “set your own destiny”.
