Future Talks Drake and Much More in Zane Lowe Interview


ON WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE: “Anytime you get a chance to get in the studio and create with another artist, see what you can come out with, see how y’all feed off each other, inspire and motivate each other…We made the most of the moment and captured a great vibe.”
ON DRAKE: “I never really talked about that moment, the whole thing. I never really speak on it because it was just a vibe. It was just a moment in time, for me to share it with another artist. When I talk about it, I want to make sure he here. I’m at the point in my life right now, musically, where I’m just focused on creatively coming out with something special on my own.”
ON THE PAST: “I don’t want to be attached to the What a Time to Be Alives or the Dirty Sprite 2s even though that’s me but that was something special. That was a moment. You feed off that energy and feed off that momentum, because people are gonna always try to compare like, ‘Oh, it’s hotter than this.’ No, it’s two separate things. It’s a different lane. Hopefully this lane will be longer than the lane I created when I had that driving force to put out those projects.”
ON FUTURE: “I want to be able to speak on how I’m living now, more so. I want to be authentic to what I am now, true to what I am, to be able to tell you, to get you from where you’re at, to get to where I am now, to this position…It’s like a fresh start.”
ON INDIVIDUALITY: “It’s just being different, being different from your environment and being able to embrace it, being able to own it, walk with confidence, and keep your head up. Be proud of the person you are and being different and embracing that you’re not like everyone else.”
ON WORK: “I work non-stop always. As soon as [Future] comes out, I’m gonna continue to work, continue to build, and search for new hits.”
ON HIS HENDRIX ALTER EGO: “I haven’t gotten to the point in my life where I can get to the Hendrix side and really make my fans understand it until now….They wasn’t ready. They wanted Future. They wanted me to be the ratchet-est, to say the most disrespectful [expletive], and I understand that’s what music is.”
ON UNDERGROUND ASPIRATIONS: “I want to go back into being more underground. Reconnecting with the fans, being more hands-on with my fans again, tweeting to fans, responding to things they want to know about.”
ON “SUPER TRAPPER”: “Getting inspired by my environment and making the most out of it. That’s basically what ‘Super Trapper’ is, taking the average person and making them a super hero.”
ON THE DUNGEON FAMILY: “I don’t always want to say Dungeon Family because I’m gon’ always have to be compared to everything that Dungeon Family was. I’m gonna have to be compared to everything that was built off Dungeon Family…I don’t want to do that. That’s just my family, but it’s just not where I am, as far as my art, my process, my creativity, everything that goes along with Future.”
