Future has stated that young people shouldn’t be comparing themselves to him, but rather, his role should serve as an example of “what not to do.”
In a long interview on Billboard ,Pluto spoke candidly about his influence on culture and admitted that the experience was “tough” to think of himself as an example.
“That sh-t’s tough, bro. I’m thinking I should be a model of the things I shouldn’t do,” he said. “In certain situations I have to serve as an example of what not to do. Therefore, I believe that you learn from me, and if I need to sacrifice myself I think so.”
He added: “[I want] for somebody else to live more than me. I would like to see another artist join me in doing what I’m doing more effectively than I am. I’d like to modify the negative aspects they may perceive in me, and enhance my performance for them. That’s more important to me than anything else.”
Future’s lyrics on drugs have become a infamous topic for rappers of the young decades, particularly in cases like Juice WRLD whom prior to his death by overdose had revealed to Future in his first encounter that he been a catalyst for Juice WRLD Chicago rapper to attempt to lose weight at first.
“When Future told me that, I thought “Oh my God. What’s the hell has I done?” Future told Rolling Stone in the year of 2019. “It really irked me. It really bothered me. Much more than I thought it would when he mentioned it to me.”
In an interview on Billboard, Future added: “If I was a role model I wouldn’t want anyone to do the same way that I’m doing it because the crap that I do is different from none. Certain things you can learn about me and can apply it to help you get through your life, helping you to grow and grow. However, implementing everything I do — or simply taking every step will be difficult because I’m convinced that I’m not a unique person.”
“If I were married and living at home with my kids I’m sure it would be a whole different story. It’s not a way I lived. It’s something you can only dream about,” Future said. “That’s among my hopes. It’s not difficult for some people however for me it’s just like the rock star lifestyle does not work well for me.”
He went on to say: “For even creating music I feel that I’m not getting something, if I don’t do the music in a particular kind of way. I’ve really dedicated my entire life to my supporters. I devoted my entire existence to my music. Everything I cherish all the things I’ve gotten I put into music. The final outcome has yet to be determined to this day.”
In addition to that, in Future information His last album I NEVER LIKE You received a nomination for the Best Rap album during the 2023 Grammys and he’s expected to headline the Rolling Loud’s next California edition along with other rap artists such as Lil Wayne and Playboi Carti.
