Quotes/words From Future
Future~ I don’t write hits for myself, or for other artists, or to just be writing it. I write it because I was born to do this. I was given this gift and I’m making the most of my opportunity. Future~ If you want to play the piano, you just gotta love the piano, and I loved the way that music sounded from the beginning. Always did everything about an instrument I loved.
