In part one of a five-part e-documentary, #FutureHive leader, Future, opens up about life after Ciara and his 2014 Honest LP.
The documentary follows the Atlanta hitmaker as he battles a seasonal cold. While choppin’ it up with famed journalist Elliott Wilson, Future opens up about the experiment he did with Honest, and how he managed the negative reactions afterwards.

“I feel like I’m just losing by myself,” Future said. “And I’m not responsible for the situation that I’m putting myself in. I took so much advice, I put myself in so many situations and I was like, ’Man I can’t be out here. I gotta just go back home. I gotta record, I gotta be comfortable with doing the music that I’m doing.’”
To combat the unexpected results, Future hoped to get back in the studio with then-fiancee Ciara to create a follow-up to the 2013 smash “Body Party,” but realized CiCi wanted to go in another direction, which appears to have been the genesis of the couple’s split.

“We finished the album before [the one] she just dropped and she didn’t want us to be a part of it at first, and I’m like, ‘Damn, we just came off a number one and you go straight to Dr. Luke and start working with him,'” the 31 year old said. “So me and Mike Will, we didn’t even get a chance to work on the album — the last album, even though we had a number one. I thought that was a little weird. And we’re still in a relationship, so it was like, sh-t kinda threw me off.”
