future-7

A night after Future premiered Dirty Sprite 2 for a select group of fans and industry insiders in New York, the ATLien sees the third part of his Like I Never Left documentary discuss his back story. The relationship between he & DJ Esco is on prominent display here, an extension of how Esco helped turn Magic City Mondays into a defacto show and prove in the Atlanta hip-hop community and beyond.

Friends since 2009, Future admits showing to to Magic City and sparking up a relationship with Esco who was honored this part March with Hendrix’s 56 Nights mixtape. Esco would play Future’s records at Magic City and week after week the buzz began, translating from Future being a strip club staple to a street one and then an industry chart topper. All of it blossomed from their initial encounters at the world famous Atlanta strip club.

Future also laments in the third episode of Like I Never Left about where he’s come from and how he never wants to return to that aspect of his life. “I’m in another environment, I get a chance to live lavishly the majority of the time of the day,” Future says in a moment of reflection. “I’m in the five-star hotel, or I’m at a five-star restaurant, but I come from nothing, I come from the streets so sometimes out of my day I go back and I reminisce and I get back into the streets to what made me and I want to see the people that’s a part of that, that was a part of my life before my success, get a chance to see me successful, so it can motivate them to become successful one day.”

Part three of the Like I Never Left documentary was premiered by Complex. The episode concludes with another snippet of Dirty Sprite 2 where Future laments that he’s glad he fell out of love and then some. Dirty Sprite 2 arrives Friday.
