The Seattle Seahawks DJ Feels Weird Playing Future Because of Ciara

For the most part, any tension between Russell Wilson/Ciara and Future has blown over, save the relentless trolling by fans of both parties on social media. The interviews and comparisons have died down, and with the football season back in full swing, surely, attention is being directed towards Wilson’s performance on the field, as opposed to off of it.

Well, apparently, this soap opera has even spilled over to the field. The Seahawks’ DJ, DJ DV One, has admitted that while players consistently want to hear music from Future’s latest album, DS2, on the field during games, he feels “weird” about playing some of the Atlanta rapper’s records in an interview with Billboard.

Among the players, last year it was Drake and Rick Ross. This year, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for Future. But that dynamic is weird too, because I can barely play Future with Ciara running around and that’s her baby’s dad. It’s just that he has a dope-[expletive] album out right now, players like to hear it, it definitely gets you pumped up—even though it’s low-tempo, it’s still stuff that you want to hear—and then you’ve got Ciara running up with little baby Future and she’s dating Russell so it’s like, “Oh f–k.”

If they were to ask me to play “Tony Montana” I’d be like, get the hell out of here. If they ask me to play “Commas” or “Trap N—-s” or any of this type of [stuff], I’m playing that all day. It’s a weird balance—how do I play this and feel comfortable?

It’s a pretty interesting dynamic, especially considering the other team Billboard looked into was the Atlanta Falcons, Future’s hometown team, and the “Commas” rapper’s name wasn’t mentioned. Instead, Falcons DJ, DJ Jay Envy, pointed out that perennial Atlanta favorites Outkast and Young Dro often dominate, not to mention new standout Young Thug, who could probably do more than just soundtrack a Falcons practice one day.




Ciara Speaks On Russell Wilson Being In Baby Future’s Life

Last month on Future’s interview with The Breakfast Club he expressed his strong disagreement about Ciara’s current boyfriend, NFL player Russell Wilson photographed holding his son and pushing his stroller:

If I was a kid, and my momma had some dude pushing me, I would’ve jumped out the stroller and slapped the shit out of him. You never do that in our community…you’ve only known this dude for a few months and bring him around your son, who does that?!

Ciara didn’t say much in a response, just a few tweets, but she was on CBS In The Morning today and shed light on her position in the situation:

At one point in time when we were together, I took care of [Future’s] kids as well, at a very young time in our relationship. Well, what’s the difference here?

Double standard much? Well Ciara said that she tried to get Future and Russell to speak but Future wasn’t having that.

Watch Ciara’s appearance on CBS in the Morning in its entirety above. Do you think she supported her argument well?

The New Triangle Offense: The Issues Between Ciara, Future, and Russell Wilson

Music and sports have always been intertwined.  Players use music to get themselves motivated for a big game on the field, and musicians try to copy the mindset of an athlete when they’re in the booth making an album. There has never been a mash-up like the one between Ciara, Future, and Russell Wilson. There have been so many up-and-downs, twists and turns involving a #1 album, a new NFL contract, and multiple confusing and misguiding tweets. Here are some of the key points in this love triangle:

May 19, 2014:

Baby Future is born

Baby Future

Ciara gives birth to “Future Zahir Wilburn” on May 19th of last year. The birth of baby Future seemed to be just the icing on the cake for Ciara. She was coming off a year in which she made a true comeback to mainstream stardom with “Body Party”–co-written by Future and produced by his go-to beatsmith, Mike Will Made It–and prepared to release a new studio album. Everything seemed to be lining up for Ciara and her two Futures at this point.

August 13th, 2014:

Ciara and Future break up

Ciara Future

Just a few months after baby Future is born, Ciara and his father split up. Reports were that Future Sr. cheated on the 28-year-old singer. This is a major point in the timeline, not just considering how it altered their personal lives, but how it affected the trajectory of their respective music careers.

October 28th, 2014:

Future drops Monster

After his last album, Honest, failed to meet expectations, Future dropped the Monster mixtape just 6 months later. This was the beginning of Future’s road to becoming the hottest rapper in the game, a run that would rival Lil Wayne’s iconic 2007 mixtape run at its culmination the following year. He would go on to drop Beast Mode in January, and 56 Nights a couple months later, in March.

April 23, 2015:

Ciara links up with Russell Wilson

Rumor started with Russell Wilson and Ciara becoming an item during this time of the year. Wilson was coming off the worst moment in his career by throwing the game ending interception in the Super Bowl. Seems as a great way to pick yourself up after a lost.

May 4, 2015:

Ciara album flops

Ciara album was clearly a disappointing.  The album failed to produce much success in numbers, as it only sold approximately 20K copies. Billboard noted in a review that although the album was filled with uptempo dance songs and vulnerability, the album has been seen before by Ciara.

July 10, 2015:

Future drops “Like I Never Left” video, Ciara responds

In a video doc, Future goes on to talk about how he didn’t understand why Ciara didn’t want to work with him on her upcoming album. Many believed that this was a  shot at Ciara. Ciara took to twitter feeling some type a way about the comments.

Future sits with the Breakfast Club

Before his new album Dirty Sprite 2 dropped, Future explains his feelings towards his situation with Ciara and her new boo Russell Wilson. He express how it is weird for another man to be around his son at such a earlier age.

July  31, 2015

Russell Wilson signs new contract.

Russell Wilson, Baby Future

Wilson and the Settle Seahawks agreed to a contract extension of 4 years-87.6 million dollars. After the contract was signed and sealed, the 26-year-old quarterback was able to get back to football, and have his girl right by his side. Pictures surfaced of Russell Wilson holding baby Future in his arms, playing daddy.

These pictures seem to get back to Future who responded with a classic twitter rant.

Many people have already pick their sides or “Hive” if you will, but it seems as if the beef that is in the air between them is just getting cooked up.

Russell Wilson and Ciara Dance on Stage Together at the Kids Choice Awards

Love and Hip-Hop

Ciara and Russell Wilson‘s relationship has been all over headlines over the past week for a number of reasons. First, Russell Wilson revealed in an interview that he and Ciara haven’t done the deed yet–“God’s plan”–then Future did a string of interviews in which he clowned Wilson’s aforementioned comments, and revealed he thought it was too soon for him to be pushing the child he had with Ciara around in a stroller.

Last night, at the Kids Choice Sports Awards, Wilson and Ciara showed off their much-talked about relationship on stage, when they joined forces on stage for what looked like a pretty fun series of whips and Nae-Naes. Video clip above.

Russell Wilson Says He & Ciara Aren’t Having Sex

Russell tells all in church Q&A

Russell Wilson is Ciara‘s boyfriend, and that’s been official for some time now. It is a safe assumption, that after a few months of being romantically involved, there has been some form of sexual intercourse. That’s not an unsafe presumption to make.

Well, if you think like we do, you’re apparently wrong. In a Q&A with The Rock Church in San Diego, as he sat down with someone he has apparent history with, Wilson detailed that he declared that he would be with Ciara before they even met, and they have yet to engage in the physical part of their relationship.

I told her…If you can really love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.

Wilson is sticking to his religious guts, and later in the interview, he and his interviewer will share a joke alluding to the fact that he’s got marital plans for the “I Bet” singer, who, less than a year ago, was engaged to the rapper Future.

You can watch the full interview above, or skip to the Ciara segment, which gets kicked off shortly after the 22-minute mark.

Ciara just dropped her mic

For many days, the rumor was that Russell Wilson would be taking his rumored new girlfriend, Ciara, to the White House Correspondents Dinner, but after Russell Wilson was spotted at the Obama residence with his grandmother on his arm, the rumors slightly quelled.


Russell Wilson and Ciara walked in, and nearly broke the internet. Stunning images of the former Superbowl champion and the “I Bet” singer, who recently broke off her engagement with “March Madness” rapper Future.

What do you think. Did CiCi upgrade? Or are you still here for her and Future Hendrix? One thing’s for sure. Ciara’s latest single is incredibly timed.
