Here’s Why Future Is Like Jesus, As Told By Post Malone

Post thinks we should be kneeling at Future's feet.

Published December 13th

Future is undoubtedly one of the hottest rappers in the game right now, but Post Malone still doesn’t think he gets the praise that he deserves. In fact, the “Rockstar” artist thinks Future should be treated more like a god. In a recent interview on DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 show, The Whoolywood Shuffle, Post explains why Future is like Jesus and others should be kneeling at his feet.

According to Post, Future is the hood version of our Lord and Savior. “I’ve always been a big Future fan. He’s trap Jesus," he said. "He’s got a lot of soul in his voice. A lot of haters don’t give him the credit he deserves because mainstream people will be like, ‘Oh, Auto-Tune.’ He’s a fantastic vocalist and he really has a lot of expression in his voice.”

In addition to digging the “Mask Off” artist’s melodic flavor, he claimed Future is versatile and can switch from upbeat anthems to slow-burning tracks. “He makes some very sad songs but they’re still turnt up at the same time, so I can really appreciate that,” he added

Post Malone’s comparison of Future is super interesting, considering the rapper originally received backlash after claiming that rap was essentially ‘dead.’ He later corrected his remarks in a video on Twitter however, stating that his words were twisted primarily due to his consumption of alcohol. Liquor or not though, at least we know who Post Malone is worshiping.
