It’s been a minute since JAY-Z’s 4:44album has been a topic of discussion, but Future changed all that during a recent interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 radio station. The conversation surfaced on Tuesday (January 22) and addressed one of Hov’s lines on the track “Kill Jay-Z,” which appeared to send at shot at Future.
“I don’t even know what you woulda done/In the future other niggas playin’ football with your son,” Jay spit, a perceived reference to Future’s child with ex-fiancée Ciara and her current husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Future believes the Roc-A-Fella legend should’ve had his back.
“With JAY-Z, when I talked to him, he was like ‘I didn’t mean to say that. I didn’t mean it like that,'” Future said. “I was just like, ‘You supposed to be bigging up the rap community. You need to let the NFL deal with the NFL. You supposed to be bigging up me if anything. We come from the trenches. [apple_news_ad type=”any”]
“I come from the streets, you come from the streets. You supposed to be bigging me up. You not supposed to be giving no negative attention on a hot line for something that’s always going to be out. He was like, ‘My fault and all that,’ but it’s out now so it ain’t just ‘my fault’ or whatever it is. It is what it is. I’m not even trippin’ off him.”
The subject likely came up because of Future’s interview with Freebandz Gang Beats 1 Radio last week. During the interview, Future insinuated Ciara called all the shots.
“He not being a man in that position,” he said. “He not telling her, ‘Chill out with that on the internet. Don’t even talk to him. I’m your husband. You better not even bring Future’s name up!’ If that was me, she couldn’t even bring his name up. She know that. She couldn’t even bring her exes names up.”
