Future‘s career in the music industry is one for the ages. He was counted out of the race for being at a top-tier level a couple years ago and now here we are in 2016, with “Summer 16” his for the taking.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Future spoke on drug use, his come back in the industry, and his desire for longevity. Reading the interview, you’ll see Future’s desires and his focus. He refuses to let anything come in between himself and his creative streak.

Future's Goal is Longevity in The Music Business


“I want to keep doing what I’m doing and see how far I can go,” he says. “See when it stops. See what the end is like. I want to make this moment last as long as I can make it. If I miss a day, I’m afraid I’ll miss out on a smash record.”

That very same attitude is what has driven Future to give us mixtapes, albums, and projects, in a consistent frame of time. Monster was the beginning of his new-found focus. DJ Esco vitally helped Future tune out the outside comments and focus on the music he loved to make. It was during that time, he recorded “March Madness.” The song didn’t make the placement for Monster, but it was on and popping when it came time to release 56 Nights. That goes to show you, timing is everything. It’s not only the process of recording that is important, love also has a lot to do with Future’s focus.

“I’m not broken,” he says. “Why fix something if it’s not broke? If I break it, and I try to fix it again, it might not be the same. I’m creating my legacy right now.”

Future sees falling in love as something “very scary” and it’s a threat to his creative streak. Imagine Future creating an album while married again; we’ll likely end up with an album like Honest. Not to say that Honest is a bad album, but for longtime Future lovers, the pop-crossover album wasn’t exactly what they had in mind. This album came during his engagement to then girlfriend, Ciara.

“To stop in the middle of my run, and settle down and create a whole different kind of music? It’s gonna be super hard to make that transition. People look at what I did as one of the greatest comebacks of all time. But to do it a third time?”

As mentioned in the interview, there are women in Future’s life, but the love aspect, it isn’t there. As we continue our journey through summer sixteen, Future’s success is only likely to heighten after a world tour with Drake.

Future isn’t only doing this for his own benefit, he has a family to feed.

“I’m just looking for stability and longevity,” Future tells her. “I’m really doing it for stability for my kids.”

This resurgent run for the last two years we’ve seen from Future isn’t to be tampered with. Future believes this to be his second life and second chance to do something amazing.

“You got to make the most of your second life. I was born Nayvadius, but now I’m Future. Should I dwell on what Nayvadius was supposed to be? I get a chance to experience life as something else. I wasn’t supposed to be like this.”
