The release of Future’s new mixtape is a courtesy to Drake, and not a dig at his baby mama Ciara. Future dropped his surprise mixtape, Beast Mode 2, at midnight today (7/6), which also happens to be the same day as Ciara and Russell Wilson’s second wedding anniversary. Fans were quick to make a connection between the two events, and pondered if Future picked the date on purpose.
However, TMZ reports there was no ill will or planned attack in the mixtape’s release. In fact, it was originally supposed to drop on July 4th, but Future felt that date was too close to Drake’s release of Scorpion, so he didn’t want to compete or mess with Drake’s numbers. The two have a long history together, having bee onn tour together and collaborated on an album.
As for Ciara and Russell, Future’s never kept up with their relationship and didn’t connect the dots to the special date.
