Cover Story excerpt:
As Future tells it, during his time living in Los Angeles, he had a moment of stark clarity. “Who is this person? I don’t know this person. This the person they told me to be,” he remembers thinking to himself in the mirror. Then, one day, driving through L.A., he reached his breaking point. “It’s a dream, to come from where I come from and say you have a house in Beverly Hills,” he admits. “But I’m not happy. This is not who I am. I don’t like jogging. I still have people coming over, playing loud music in a quiet neighborhood. I still have my family coming around, going through my refrigerator, eating up all my food — but that’s what I love. That’s what keeps me grounded.
Being around my friends that love me, they see things that I can’t see, because when you up, they can still see the bottom. And I just had a talk with myself, like, I’m not happy doing this. I’m not happy in this expensive car, riding around, lonely. Having nobody to really talk to. I need to go back home. If it was a time like this, and I was riding around lonely, I could just pull up to my grandma’s house and have her fix me something to eat.”
