In a new cover interview with Billboard, Future admitted that although marriage and “rock star lifestyle don’t gel,” one of his dreams is to get married.
“If I was married, at home with my kids, man, it would be way different. That’s a life I never lived,” Future told the magazine. “It’s something you dream about. That’s one of my dreams. It’s easy for other people, but for me, it’s just like, man, this rock star lifestyle, it don’t gel well.”
He added, “Even creating music, I just feel like I’m missing out on something if I don’t make the music a certain kind of way. I really dedicated my entire life to my fans. I dedicated my entire life to my music. Everything that I love, everything that I got, I put it in music. And the outcome is yet to be determined, still to this day.”
The 38-year-old father of eight said that here’s room for him to have a successful career and a successful marriage. However, he is not quite ready because he is afraid that he’ll probably pick the wrong girl.
“I feel like I can have both,” the “WAIT FOR U” hitmaker said. “When the time’s right, it’ll happen. It ain’t nothing that I’m really chasing. But I do dream of it, and I do want it. I swear I’d probably pick the wrong girl or something, if I was just chasing it. You never know how certain things happen, with relationships, and with love, and getting married, and being under the same roof as your kids, and you got other kids that are not living with you.”
Future continued, “That’s just a whole ’nother lifestyle that I haven’t even got a chance to live. But I understand that it’s something I would love, and when the time presents itself, then I know I’m going to be prepared. I want to make sure I just live that to the fullest. But I don’t really think about that s**t, like having a wife and s**t. But I want a wife. Everybody around me wants me to have a wife more than I want a wife.”
Future has recently been nominated for four Grammy Awards. His latest album I NEVER LIKED YOU is nominated for Best Rap Album. The Atlanta rapper is also set to headline the 2023 Rolling Loud festival next year in Los Angeles, California alongside Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and Playboi Carti.
