Theo Wenner on Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone's new cover boy is Future, and the interview's the first one the dude has given since ending his legal battle with ex-fiancé Ciara.

"I can't even think about it," Future says of the court case that ended with him securing joint custody of his and Ciara's 1-year-old son. "I never imagined my life would be like that: 'I'm going to sue you and take away from you.' I don't know how to deal with something like that. All I know is record, record, record, record."

Future dropped a countersuit against Ciara's $15 million defamation suit shortly after the custody battle concluded, and tells Rolling Stone he has warm feelings for his "Body Party" collaborator:

"Her being successful, her being happy, helps me. I'm attached to you. If you're happy, I'm happy. You're connected for life. I don't want you to go through this shit and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation."

Elsewhere in the Rolling Stone story, we learn that Future records in front of a Jay Z portrait (the two just dropped "I Got the Keys" with DJ Khaled) and, like you and I, gets his credit card declined sometimes. (In this case at the Chanel store, where he solves the issue with "an Instagram-ready wad of cash.") Also, if you're waiting for Future to "settle down and create a whole different kind of music," don't hold your breath: he sees it being "super hard to make that transition."
