Future Explains Why He Left Instagram

By Daryl Nelson

Why did Future delete all of his Instagram messages a while back?

He revealed his decision to leave social media during his interview with Zane Lowe.

"It was probably the best thing I ever done," Future said. "'Cause [...] I don't have to respond to certain things that's going on, even in my life. "I wanted to give attention to my music, my kids, my family," he continued. "Social media can take up a lot of your life. I wanted to be able to give my fans all of me."
When he did return to the Gram earlier this week, he apologized to those he's hurt in the past.


With all due respect, Im asking you to be loving, patient, and kind enough to understand my creativity is to heal wounds, not make new ones. However, the greater the risk, the greater the reward. Especially when you have great intentions for every individual that has played a major role in your life experiences. Now bare with me through my trials and tribulations, my wrong's and my rights. Find time to forgive me for any hurt or heartbreak I may have caused loving selfishly! I'm not perfect, no man walking this earth is. I'm at a place in life where I wanna make my weaknesses my strengths to become a better person than I was yesterday. -Future

So there may be more to the social media wipe than Future just wanting to pay attention to other things. But whatever it is, he seems to be working on it.
