Future is gearing up to release his third studio album, DS2, in just a few days and as time draws nearer to the big date, the rapper is giving fans a glimpse of how everything came to be. In a mini documentary titled Like I Never Left, the ATL hitmaker gets extremely personal, addressing his fears, his motivations and even his failed relationship with his ex-fiancée, Ciara.
Though the "Honest" rapper shares a lot of interesting tidbits about his mental space in recording this project, his brutal honesty when talking about Ci Ci definitely serves as the clip's highlight. He starts off addressing the newly off-the-market singer's sudden switch from urban to pop and his disapproval of her bold decision while they were an item.
"I went to my fiancée at the time [Ciara] and I told her, 'Let's just get back to working. Let's just get back to music,' but she was pregnant and she started working on the next album," he said. "Me and Mike WiLL [Made-It], we finished the album, the album before the album she just dropped, and she ain't want us to be a part of it at first. I was like, 'Damn, we just came off a No. 1, you just go straight to Dr. Luke and start working with him? You go right to the pop lane after you get a little steam? We shouldn't do that. We should just finish what we started. Go back to that 'Body Party' lane and give the fans what they wanted... And we were in a relationship so it was like, she kind of threw me off."
Going even further, Future candidly shared about their lengthy engagement and her desire for a "rushed" and publicized wedding, which he apparently wasn't there for.
"At the same time, I had already said [that] we was about to go and get married so she was just trying to feel like we need to rush the date and go on and do it and I was like, 'I'm not finna get married,'" he said. "'I want to marry you but I can't have no big wedding on E! News. I can't have all these big different media outlets covering my wedding."
Future ended the clip saying that he would rather get back to where it all started — the music. "I feel like my better judgment is to go back and record and make music," he said. "Make the music that I know the people want."
It looks like he followed through with his word as DS2 — short for Dirty Sprite 2 — has been receiving major critical acclaim as of late. Look out for the LP, dropping on July 17.
