The Atlanta rapper Future's son with Ciara, Future Zahir Wilburn, was born on May 19, 2014. The couple later separated and Ciara began a relationship with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Many fans believed the lyric was about Future's son being seen with Wilson at football events. However Jay explained during an interview with the Rap Radar Podcast
that he didn't intend any ill will.
"It was a line to say, 'That could happen to me in my future,' and it just so happens that his name is Future," he said. "I don't mean any malice, that was really my fear."
