Future Covers Billboard Magazine (Photos & Video)

Atlanta’s trap king Future made history this month for having two simultaneous No. 1 albums with FUTURE and HNDRXX, and now he graces the cover Billboard’s April issue.

Hendrix talks about why he chose the Future Hendrix nickname, relationship with Ciara, tour with Drake grossing over $80 million, not getting nominated for a GRAMMY and much more.

Check out some excerpts from the issue below. 

On the Future Hendrix nickname:

“The music I make, I’m ­different. The melodies I come up with, they’re not normal. Every black person wasn’t playing the guitar — Hendrix did something special.”

On not getting nominated for a GRAMMY:

“The Grammys, they get what they get — the s*** that they don’t, it’s the s*** that they maybe don’t want to understand. They’re not going to keep me from doing what I’m supposed to do as an artist.”

Rico Wade on first working with Future (his cousin):

“When I got him around the music he sounded good. But I really wanted to know if I could trust him. The reason he has excelled in the music game is because he has a moral ­compass — he doesn’t take advantage of people, and he can tell who’s really down for him and who’s not.”

On what Dungeon Family means to Future:

“Use everything around you to create: good, bad, ­negative, whatever it is. Never be afraid to be exactly who you are.”

On his relationship with Ciara:

"They had me going the cornball route. What the people don’t ­understand is, I been kicking it with superstars when it comes to females for a minute -- on the low-low with nobody don’t know-know."

I feel like everything happened for a reason. I'm happy with life now. I'm happy with life, period, even with the end of a ­relationship being..."

On Hndrxx and where he’s at in life right now:

“I’m opening you up to where I’m at. It’s about being ­vulnerable and not so cautious about what you say as far as your love life — if you was hurt or happy or in love.

I feel like everything happened for a reason. I’m happy with life now. I’m happy with life, period, even with the end of a ­relationship being… I’m just not going to settle for anything, you know? Even in my life now, I know I can be a better person. I ain’t giving up on myself, so if you give up on me, I ain’t got nothing else to say for you. Because if you give up on ­something that’s real, it wasn’t real to you.”
