Rich Homie Quan says he has never dissed Future despite perception that his “A Nigga” selection was a diss against the singer.
“In that, where did I diss Future?” Quan says in an interview with MTV. “I never dissed him. I never disrespected him as a man. I never disrespected him as a man, but, you know, blogs will take stuff and blow it out of proportion…It’s clarification. There’s no beef.”
On “A Nigga,” Quan addresses Future comparisons.
“I’m back like the future, nigga,” Quan rhymes on the song. “Quan, you the future. Ooh. Who? / Tell ’em, don’t confuse me with Future, nigga / Pockets fat, retribution, nigga.”
In August, Future addressed comparisons between the two artists.
“I started this,” Future said to Sway in the Morning in August. “You use the same pattern. You can’t use the same pattern that Future uses. You can’t say, ‘Turn up.’ You gotta say another word. Make the world feel what you saying…You sound like Future. You can’t just have the same rhyme patterns as Future. People gon’ put you in the Future category.
“He don’t sound like me,” Future added. “I haven’t really heard nothin’ but the song on the radio. I really don’t get into other artists like that. But he doin’ good. I wish him well.”
