As he preps to drop his second album in two weeks, Ciara‘s ex Future sat down to talk to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 for part two of their Q&A.

In the interview the 32 year old rapper who was involved in long drawn out out custody battle & lawsuit with Ciara last year, talked about how he was able to make so much music in such a short time span, attributing it to being “obsessed with making music” and “addicted to the studio”.

But his obsession comes at the cost of his children.

The rapper who has four children with 4 baby mamas, sacrificies spending quality time with his children for his super star lifestyle.

He said to Lowe,

You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids. You have to just do music and you’re becoming this entertainer and so many people require so much of your time for different things, different obligations you have to make money, or just different obligations you have as a person in whatever the situation may be. You gotta leave town and miss out on certain things, that you feel like you should be there. Like, your dad should be a part of this moment. I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’

He added,

My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad. My career choice is my career choice. Just stepping out of that zone, to be able to be a provider. I understand my position as a provider and my role as a dad also…Just being able to be comfortable with it. Everybody wanna be a super dad and the best dad ever but sometimes, I’m just realizing that I’m not perfect.

Wow! Ciara was lucky to get out of this relationship. At least her son with Future now has a stable father figure in his life, while his biological father goes around being a superstar to the detriment of his relationship with his children.
