Future Talks On His Relationship With Kanye West After Producing “Donda 2”
Future claims that he and Kanye West are much closer than the public realizes because he doesn’t post everything on social media. The executive producer of Donda 2 discussed his relationship with West during a new cover story for GQ, in which the outlet labels him the “best rapper alive.”
“Me and Kanye always had a relationship,” Future explains. “But it’s hard for people to understand, because I don’t put everything on Instagram. Kanye flew me to Paris in 2011 or 2012 to work on music. [Discussing] his clothing line before it came, his shoe business before it came. People don’t know I’ve been able to go to his house, and pull up right into the crib. We just never talked about it.”
West recently praised Future, describing him as “the most influential musician of the past ten years” on the Drink Champs podcast in 2021. When asked how he felt about the compliment, Future said it reminded him of the Paris vacation a decade ago.
Future Speaks On Why Kanye Called Him To Paris
“When he said that, I understood why he called me to Paris, even though I didn’t understand it at that time.” “I understood why we had certain conversations. I understood him being a part of ‘I Won.’ Even him having me write on certain [Kanye] albums that people don’t even understand I wrote on.”
He continues: “Sometimes not getting credit when you write with him because the love of the art is…I want it to be right. Top tier. Just being able to create and put those textures over different music, and being involved with something like that. And then later down the line in a priceless moment, him saying what he said on Drink Champs. The value of that statement. The value of the relationship as it continues to grow, the value of just treating people like they are priceless, instead of treating people like they got a dollar sign on them every time.”
