While visiting Atlanta radio station 107.9, the Atlanta rapper expressed a bit of discontent with Hov's words, but isn't dwelling on them.

After explaining that he spoke to JAY-Z, who said “I didn’t mean it like that,” Future said, "You’re supposed to be bigging up the rap community. We come from the trenches. You come from the street, I come from the street....You not supposed to be giving that no negative attention for a hot line that’s always gonna be out."

He left things by saying, "It is what it is. I’m not even tripping off him.”

The line comes from 4:44's intro track "Kill JAY-Z," and goes: "I don't even know what you woulda done / In the future other niggas playin' football with your son," which may allude to Future and Ciara's son spending time with her husband, NFL Quarterback Russell Wilson.

Elsewhere in the interview, the "Crushed Up" rapper spoke on his current situation at Epic records, and what he's got planned for the Future.
