Kanye West Was Almost On Future's 'Purple Reign'

By Sermon

Future recently put out his Purple Reign mixtape. It has no features on it, but there was a chance of having one huge one: Kanye West. What started out as a Twitter rumor is now confirmed through DJ Esco's interview with Complex.

I was scrolling through Twitter that night while we were waiting for it. People were saying there might have been a Kanye verse. Is there any truth to that? Nah, I heard he was going to try to drop the verse before he put it out. But it was so last second. I’m sure Kanye could have pulled it off because he's Kanye. He could probably do anything musically. I don’t doubt him in any way musically, so I’m sure if he could have had enough time, I’m sure he could have done it. I think he actually wanted to do it, but I felt like we just ran out of time. I know he’s such a perfectionist and all that. We didn’t want to rush anything with Kanye. But yeah, it would have been so dope and so fun to have Kanye on Purple Reign. I wish we would have enough time. We just ran out of time. What song would he have been on? I think the actual song he would have been on isn’t even on Purple Reign. I think it was a whole different song. So that might be released one day. [Laughs]
Also in the interview, DJ Esco says that Future is planning to break his personal release record in 2016. Last year, he delivered four projects, so expect more. Esco explained that instead of letting one album drop a year and stack up 500 unreleased songs, they'd rather feed the fans consistently.
