Future is facing backlash for his controversial comparison to Nipsey Hussle.

“WE Require Much more NI**AS LIKE NIPSEY HUSSLE #LEGENDSNEVERDIE,” wrote Scooter. “IT’S [TOO] Significantly GREED AND NI**AS HATING ON THEY Personal People today JUST WAIT YA TURN PLAY YOUR POSITION.”
Future responded in the comments by seemingly comparing himself to Nipsey. “Yeah we do have to have much more like us,” he stated, adding, “I been teaching and preaching for a decade also displaying and proving what tough operate and dedication get u #RIPNIP.”
The comment sparked backlash from social media, who didn’t hesitate to drag the “Mask Off” rapper. “@future do not ever in your life evaluate oneself to @nipseyhussle,” wrote a single Instagram user, whilst yet another fan tweeted, “Leave it to future to somehow make a nipsey tribute post about himself. Excellent music but anything incorrect with dude.”
