Future Bails on NPR Concert


Last month rapper Future backed out on a coveted performance slot at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party, at the last minute, after finding out his ex Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson were there [click here if you missed that].

Future also bailed on his NPR Tiny Desk concert but it worked out better without him...

From NPR
Last month, Zaytoven arrived at Bob Boilen's desk with a full band in tow with the intent of backing up his Atlanta friend and collaborator Future, who had dropped his latest album, The Wzrd, earlier that day. The plan was to translate the bass-heavy trap sound Zaytoven helped originate to real instruments with Neil Garrard on guitar, Bernard "TreWay" Lambert on drums, DJ Spinz and Elena on flute (for what would've been a live version of "Mask Off").
After several hours of waiting, with the band all warmed up and ready, word came that Future would be a no-show. So, to our thrill, Zaytoven redeemed the occasion with his own Tiny Desk concert, featuring instrumental versions of a couple of the earliest hits he produced for Future's Beast Mode, the mixtape that helped usher their respective rebirths in 2015.

Future can't mumble over real instruments. He flaked because he knew he'd tank. The Tiny Desk is for real artist.

When an artist is afraid or not man enough to face his ex and her new spouse, when an artist is not professional and cancels last minute, that artist is no longer viable. Future acts like he owns his masters and has decades of hits to fall back on. Go on little boy.

Tiny Desk concerts are everything, and as a previous poster said are designed for true artists. So many amazing performances! Future will not be missed.

Tiny Desk concerts are fantastic. Don't know why they asked him in the first place, it's for genuine talent only, no fakers. Check out the Wu-Tang Clan Tiny Desk concert.
