Future Talks Rihanna Collaboration and Second Album

The ATL rapper says he's the "master of music."

Published November 26, 2012

With his hit LP Pluto, Future is one of Atlanta's latest rappers to get famous accolades. Beyoncé revealed that his "Tony Montana" is one of her favorite songs, and Unapologetic star Rihanna even called the talented rookie into the studio with her.

"I was in the studio making music and she called," the hip hop star told The Juice of the pop mogul. "She wanted me to send her music, so I sent her music. It wasn't that simple though, you gotta understand, when you're dealing with big superstars."

The "Racks" brainchild ended up collaborating with the mega celeb on "Loveeeee Song," off her new album. However, he isn't the least bit shy about his talent, calling himself the "master of music" and only humbling his talent to those like Cee Lo and Andre 3000, who are part of his crew.

"I'm telling you, after I made 'Racks,' I knew how to make a hit," he explained. "It wasn't even my song but I knew what I was doing. I just felt it like something was different. I couldn't even explain."

With the release of Pluto 3D, a re-release of the hip hop celeb's debut album, approaching, Future's mind is already on album number two. He's revealed that the record will surprise the world once again, with live instrumentation and more original hits. The star is also determined to finish it in two years, although he hasn't secured any producers or artists yet to work on it.

"It's all in my head," he said. "I have small elements of the music. It's like a building, the structure of the music, so I might have the shell, a beat, a hook, a melody that I just put on the beat."

Pluto 3D is set for a release date of November 27, and will feature three new songs and two remixes. However, the "Turn on the Lights" star hasn't given any further details on his future sophomore album.
