Future must be desperate for some press following the release of his new album, The WIZRD. While sharing inspiration for his album, Future discussed his thoughts on his ex-fiancée, Ciara, and her husband Russell Wilson.
Future and Ciara have not been a couple for years. We all know if the roles were reversed, CeCe would be every kind of low-down descriptor used for women clinging to their ex. Still, her bitter ex will get no pass from me. Being the bitter baby daddy that he is, Future decided to put his unnecessary two-cents in on how Russ and Ciara’s relationship works.
While the dynamics of a healthy relationship are completely unknown to the five-time sperm donor, Future thought it was his place to discuss Ciara’s happy marriage. Eloquently stating, “he do exactly what she tell him to do”, Future seems to resent Russell valuing his wife’s opinion enough to love and obey her. The audacity?! The unmitigated gall?! How dare Russell Wilson show respect and admiration for the mind of a woman and care for a child not his own? Behaving so childishly, you’d almost think Future was jealous.
Future thought it was his place to say Russell should be a “man” and tell Ciara to stop mentioning his name in public indefinitely. Gathering all his ignorance like a spirit bomb, Future spewed the following:
“He not being a man in that position. He not tellin’ her, ‘Chill out with that on the internet. Don’t even talk to him. I’m your husband! You better not even bring Future’s name up!’ If that was me, she couldn’t even bring her exes’ names up.”
Now I don’t know just how fried the remainder of Future’s synapses are to formulate such ass-backwards opinions about how successful, functioning men who aren’t abusing prescription substances should govern their marriages. But I do know narcissistic abusive behavior when I see it.
What is clear from Future’s commentary on Ciara and Russell’s happy marriage is this — he’s jealous it is not him and is too prideful to admit he wants the prayer like the rest of us. He does not understand the practice of co-parenting or parenting for that matter. In the past, he has said the mothers’ of his children should simply explain “they gotta make a sacrifice having a superstar dad.” And so he should understand this, Ciara is happy and doesn’t care. But I know that it hurts, I know that it hurts his pride, and he can just go cry in a Nissan.

Beyoncé Drops New Song “Black Parade” [LISTEN]
Beyoncé celebrates Juneteenth with her new song “Black Parade“. Take a listen.
Also, listen to the extended version exclusively on Tidal.
Noname Drops “Song 33” in Response to J. Cole Diss
Chicago musician Noname has responded to J. Cole in her latest release “Song 33.” If you recall, two days ago we broke down the Noname/J.Cole beef and why many were calling Cole’s controversial song “Snow on Tha Bluff” misogynist and patriarchal. Noname appears to address the diss track and more on her latest release “Song 33.”
As soon as you press play the track hits you right in the feels. A sample saying “Oh, I have ambitions, dreams / But dreams don’t come cheap” opens the song, then immediately we listen to Noname discuss the patriarchal society in which Black women are forced to exist – a society that undervalues and ignores Black women. She said Oluwatoyin Salu’s name.
I saw a demon on my shoulder / it’s looking like patriarchy
Like scrubbing blood off the ceiling and bleaching another carpet
She takes aim at J. Cole for staying silent while Black women routinely “go missing,” yet immediately having something to say when she called him out on it.
One girl missing another one go missing / One girl missing another
But niggas in the back quiet as a church mouse / Basement studio when duty calls to get the verse out
Noname lists all the brutalities happening to Black people and Black women while at the same time, calling him to action. She reminds us Black women are going missing.
I guess the ego hurt now / It’s time to go to work / Wow
Look at him go / He really ‘bout to write about me when the world is in smokes?
When it’s people in trees?
She then criticizes the internet at large for being too easily distracted by the “beef” and losing sight of “the new world order.”
It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer?
And this is all y’all receive? / Distracting you from the convo wit organizers
They talkin abolishing the police
This the new world order
Noname has always been an outspoken champion for Black women’s rights, often bringing attention to crimes committed against Black women that regularly go unheard. In her response to J. Cole, the musician again uses her platform to not only highlight the inherent patriarchy that causes so many Black female victims of violent crime to go unnoticed and forgotten, but to also galvanize Cole, to publicly and boldly challenge him and everyone listening to be the vanguards of a more just and equitable society.
Noname’s call to action is one that has been repeated by women of color for years. Tarana Burke (below), a woman of color and the founder of the “Me Too” Movement, initially began saying the phrase to remind women of color that they are not alone when they struggle with coping with sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Kimberlé Crenshaw (below), another woman of color and an outspoken feminist and civil rights activist, coined the term “intersectionality” to explain the myriad obstacles Black women face in society and how those obstacles compound on one another to create a unique brand of discrimination against them.
As we take each and every day, but especially this Juneteenth, to reflect on the painful history of the United States and remember the priceless cost of freedom, we must heed Noname’s call and begin to acknowledge the ways we Black Americans are not free, the ways Black women are not free.
And we must do it in a QUEEN TONE!!!
