Atlanta Falcons DJ Plans to Play Future Set During Seattle Seahawks Game
Football might be an inherently vicious sport, but the Atlanta Falcons head coach may have just proven that it's not as ruthless as the Internet. When Atlanta radio personality Hugh Douglas asked Falcons coach Dan Quinn if the organization would request Future songs to be played to taunt Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at their game this coming Saturday, Quinn explained that his organization would "absolutely not go down that road."
But the official Falcons DJ, Jay Envy, seems to have other plans. On Monday (Jan. 10) he posted the playlist for Saturday's game on Instagram, and it features solely Future tracks—like "Same Damn Time" and "Tony Montana," for example.
"This is Atlanta. I play Future at every home game," Envy told Complex. "That’s like not playing [Kanye] in Chicago. It just doesn’t happen. I’m not not going to play Future because of a certain team or player...I’m going to play it and, to be honest, no one has hit me up directly saying I can’t play the records I normally play."
In case you didn't know, Wilson is the husband of Ciara, who is Future's baby mama. Seattle is all set to play the Falcons in Atlanta on Saturday (Jan. 14), and that could've been an awkward situation, but if Quinn stays true to his word, everything should go smoothly, and Wilson won't have to worry about hearing "March Madness" at the Georgia Dome.
A while back, Ciara allegedly believed that Future wanted to kill Wilson, likely because of a few choice song lyrics the rapper used last summer. In the song, titled "Juice," the ATL artist raps, "Tryin’ to fuck my baby mama, dawg what’s up with you?/You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pullin’ up on you.” Future himself never spoke out on the issue, but maybe his lyrics said enough already.
In other Future-related news, he's been extremely successful over the last year or so. Drake announced that the Summer Sixteen tour, which featured the DS2 rapper as a co-headliner, had grossed a total of $84 million. That figure made their concert series the highest-grossing hip-hop tour of all time. Combine that with news that Ciara has officially dropped her entire defamation suit against Future, and safe to say Hendrix is coming into 2017 nicely. But where's Beast Mode 16?
