From the courtroom to the studio, the battle between Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson and rapper Future is getting better by the day.
The ongoing feud between Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and rapper Future has become one of the bigger talking points in the rap game recently. For some background, let’s start at the beginning.
Future is the father of a child he had with R&B singer Ciara, who is currently engaged to Wilson and has been all over the place with her new flame while her old one continues to seemingly burn for her (or at least just doesn’t want to see his baby mama with anyone else).
Ciara is currently in a court battle with her ex over a defamation lawsuit she brought against him. In those filings, she mentions what she views as threatening comments toward Wilson by the rapper, according to NBC Sports Pro Football Talk:
"Ciara’s lawyers mention in the documents a social-media posting by Future with a pair of football emojis followed by three gun emojis. The lawyers also point out a recent song from Future with these lyrics: “Try’na f–k my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pulling up on you.”"
For those of you who aren’t hip to the game, “that heat” is lingo for a gun — which explains why Ciara is worried. It should be noted that it likely has nothing to do with her case against him, but it makes for good storylines.
The beef between these guys goes so far as to the point where Wilson made sure that no songs by Future were played inside the Seahawks’ stadium before, during , or after the game (something that reportedly cause an issue with his teammates, who like Future’s songs).
