Future thinks the world is giving too much attention to R Kelly and the scandal surrounding him.
Future is currently on a promotional tour for his upcoming studio album The WZRD. The “March Madness” rapper stopped by to talk about the album and forthcoming documentary, but it’s his thoughts on the R. Kelly sex scandal that is getting all of the attention.
The rapper stopped by the Power 106 studio during the promotional run for his studio album ‘The WIZRD’. While there, he spoke about everything from his writing skills and upcoming documentary to Lady Gaga and the significance of radio play.
Nine minutes into the interview, host J.Cruz asked Future if he would ever make music with the Pied Piper of R&Pee?
Future has already worked with Kelly back in 2012 on the track “Parachute,” and it’s not clear if the radio host was aware of that during the interview. The rapper’s response was interesting.
“Man, who is that? I thought we had forgot about that? We giving it too much attention,” Future responded.
“When you give things too much attention, they blow up. That’s why he gon’ blow up. That’s why his music gonna do what it do. If you stop talking about it, it’ll go away.”
Future’s reply seems to be in response to the increase of streams of Kelly’s music following the eye-opening Surviving R.Kelly Lifetime docuseries. But in response to Future, not giving R.Kelly enough attention is the reason he was able to get away with his behaviour for so long in the first place.
Future’s statement rubbed a lot of people the wrong way as they pointed out that not giving it attention means that the accusations will die down and sexual predators will thrive and keep going free.
Meanwhile, Future’s 2012 “Parachute” track features R. Kelly and, unlike artists like Lady Gaga and Omarion, Future hasn’t made any mention of retiring the track with the alleged sexual abuser.
