Atlanta rapper Future has social media buzzing this weekend after appearing to take a shot at fellow hip-hop artist Desiigner.
Footage of Future shooting off a subliminal presumably at the hip-hop newcomer has surfaced online.
Recently, G-Unit leader 50 Cent compared Desiigner to Future’s sound.
“I see artists having the ability to be artists because they’re meeting the audience before they’re meeting the record companies. I got a chance to hear this kid, I think he signed with Kanye [West] and them. Desiigner. I’m not sure if he’s going to be able to make another record because he only recorded two songs but the one that he did reminded me of Future. Now how good is that? See, this is what I’m saying to you – because I don’t personalize because it’s not me. If Future said he was uncomfortable with it, then maybe I would be like, ‘Nah, yeah, you did kinda bite that, that style.’ But when he doesn’t say that, for me, I’ve had artists that reminded me of me like Troy Ave and when it came out I was like this [‘Hmmm…’]. I didn’t say nothing the whole time he was talking because I wanted to see who he is. And then when you see that he’s consistent – then it’s like, ‘Nah, I kinda like it,’ because I want the style to survive.” (“Shade 45 StreetzIzWatchin”)
