MTV News Cover Story: Future’s Reign [Interview]

Future’s Reign

By Jack Barnes

Notoriously private hip-hop artist Future sat down with MTV News’ Meaghan Garvey for his most revealing interview ever.  Going behind-the-scenes of the rap superstar’s Purple Reign tour, Future opens up to MTV News about being a father and his relationship with his children, the identity crisis that drove him to leave Los Angeles and return to Atlanta, the memories of family and childhood that he cannot escape, and the sacrifices he has made for fame and success. He also reveals previously unknown Future alter-egos! Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

Future on his secret alter-egos:

“The Wizard is me,” Future replies when I ask him to explain it back in Toronto. The title was given to him by OG Double D, the uncle memorialized in “Hardly.” “He named me the Wizard ’cause he always say I got the answers for everything. I’m gonna find a way to figure it out — that’s what the Wizard do, go back to my crystal ball and come back with these different ideas. …. He pauses, stuck on the memory of his uncle, but before we can move on, he continues: “I have an alter ego that really nobody know about. Caesar Lee. … Caesar Lee, that’s the ladies’ man. The charmer,” he explains, laughing mischievously. “When I give you that Caesar Lee, you’re never going away. He’s rare. You’ll fall in love with Caesar Lee. Let me just say that.”

“When was the last time you brought out Caesar Lee?” I ask.

Future thinks hard for a moment. “Man, to be honest? The night I wrote ‘Body Party.'” Then he changes the subject.

Future on being a parent:

“They know my music, but they don’t understand it,” Future explains when I ask how much his kids know of rap’s most notorious rock star. “My daughter don’t understand what’s ‘dirty Sprite.’ My oldest son, I sense that he has an idea of what it is, but he never seen me do it. They hear the stories about me smoking, but they never seen me smoke. People always think that I’m just doing this in front of my kids. But I want them to have a totally different life from me. I want for them to make their own decisions.”
