The world (well, Future Hive at least) is looking forward to Future’s upcoming Dirty Sprite 2 release. The Atlanta rapper has by far been the most consistent artist of the year, a string of mixtapes and a rabid fan base has obviously resulted in recharged emotions and creativity. However, unlike Honest, his 2014 retail release that didn’t fare as well as Pluto with sales registers, he’s opening himself up even more with a brand new documentary, “Like I Never Left”.

The first part of the series, premiered by Complex features and introduction from Dungeon Family original Big Rube and footage of Future performing at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. The meat of the documentary, at least the first part of it comes in a sitdown between Future Hendrix and journalist Elliott Wilson.

For the first time publicly at least, Future admits some of his fears and paranoia while creating Honest (“I feel like I’m losing by myself”), how he felt after Ciara didn’t want to work with him or Mike WiLL Made-It on her latest album Jackie after creating a hit with “Body Party” and how he didn’t want to rush their wedding when they were still together, adding that he didn’t want it to be a big public event for the media because he felt uncomfortable with the idea.

“I’m not comfortable with where I’m at in my career, I’m not comfortable about compromising, about just being the person that I am, being the man that I am,” Future tells Wilson. “And I feel like, my better judgment is to go back and record and make music, make the music that I know the people want. I know they want the ratchet shit from me, I know they want me to say the most disrespectful shit it is because that’s just what they come from me, I came in like that.”
