Future had some choice words for rappers who are copying his style. At the Atlanta rhymer’s concert in New York on Saturday (Feb. 27), he addressed the imitators who he believes are biting his lyrical flows.
In a 15-second video (see above), Future Hendrix takes a moment and tells the crowd, “I’ma let y’all n—-s know, it’s only one Future in this motherf—– and I’m really the plug, really,” before launching into the What a Time to Be Alive track, “I’m the Plug.”
There has been widespread speculation that Future was aiming his vitriol at G.O.O.D. Music’s newest signee, Desiigner, who some say sound like the Freebandz leader.
The “Panda” rapper insists that he has no issues with Future. “Big ups to him, big ups to Future,” he told Complex. “I actually like Future’s music. I like his music, you feel me? I’m not a hater or a critic on him, you know, I do me. God bless him, God bless me.”
However, Awful Records artist Father thinks that Future is oversaturating the rap game with repetitive music.
When a Twitter user asked Father when was he going to drop a new project — since it’s been a year since his last tape — he responded, “Go listen to sum Carti, uzi and yachty and be patient boy. I’m not Future. I don’t run my sound into the ground over the course of 5 mixtapes.”
In addition, Future got into a little Twitter spat with Young Thug shortly after he dropped his EVOL album. “Boy slow down dropping all that BS music,” Thugger tweeted to which Future responded, “Yo bitch wish u was me…in real life.”
So in the end, Future could be sending his message to several rappers who have a problem with his prolific musical output.
