Future, coming off of what has most certainly been a banner year, is on the cover of the latest issue of XXL. In his interview with the magazine, the Atlanta rapper opened up about topics ranging from his relationship with his son to the flip-flops that inspired one of DS2's most memorable lines. In the interview, Future also discussed the nature of his relationship with his good friend Drake saying "I feel like genuinely we’ve been building a great relationship over these years. We got history together."
Of the famous designer sandals, Future said:
“Man, this gon’ sound crazy but I had a pair, one pair of Gucci flip-flops that inspired me to make the song. But with that said, man, my grandma was over the house and she went swimming in the swimming pool and she needed some shoes. She needed some flip-flops and she like, ‘What you got?’ and the Gucci flip-flops was sitting by the door. And she put my Gucci flip-flops on and ain’t bring them back. I’m like, that’s kinda weird. [Laughs] The album come out, then it made it a little more weird that she got my Gucci flip-flops on and it’s my grandma… Yeah, she heard the song. She don’t even understand it though. Like, ‘You don’t even understand, those the Gucci flip-flops that inspired the song that you wearing. And you my grandma and you wearing them. Ugh.’”
