Future’s tired. In 2018, the superstar crooner dropped two projects and toured aplenty. Yet, in a new interview with Zane Lowe, Future revealed that he is absolutely exhausted. That feeling played a big role in his not touring his collaborative project with Juice WRLD and should remind us that, for all his fame, Future also a human being.
“In 2018 I just didn't want to do anything,” Future said. “They just wanted me to do things, but I would just ... I did a lot. Five years I was on the road. I didn't ever get a chance to go home. I've been on four or five tours all across the world, from European tour to Australia tour, to just doing it two, three times back to back. Soon as I get off a tour I got to go on another tour in two weeks, go on another tour. I never get a chance to vacation. I never get a chance to go nowhere, so 2018 was my first time going different places, and trying different, new experiences, and staying places over two weeks, and…”
At this point, Lowe breaks in to ask Future if he loved the perceived time off to which Future replied: “Yeah, I loved it. I enjoyed it, you know what I'm saying? I enjoyed just chilling, hanging around the house.”
5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week on Audiomack
Press play on new releases from Lakeyah, Larry June and Cardo, Cheque, Co Cash, and midwxst.
Evidently, Future was in desperate need of a vacation. As demanding a vocation as he finds himself in, it’s very humanizing to hear that much like someone with a 9-to-5, Future can get damn tired of his circumstances. International superstar recording artist or office worker, burn out is a very real kiss of death. Also fascinating is how Future regards two projects and a tour as doing little. I suppose you acclimate to anything.
Hopefully, Future was well-rested when he made his upcoming album, The WIZRD, due out January 18.
