So, to begin, it’s no secret that I’m the treasurer of #FutureHive. I mean, I’ve confirmed this on my platform numerous times. In any case, I have a message for my fellow bredren: I think it’s about time we left Russell Wilson alone. Ultimately, a man shouldn’t be attacked for being a good stepdad. All in all, Wilson should be applauded for taking an active role in Future‘s son’s life. On the real, any thought to the contrary is truly misguided.
So, I was inspired to write this post because Wilson has taken some unnecessary heat over the last few weeks. The fuckery began on this past Mother’s Day. In the middle of an Instagram post to Ciara, Wilson used the words “our kids.” Now, for anyone who is unaware, in addition to Baby Future, Wilson and Ciara just had a biological child together. Needless to say, #FutureHive wasn’t with the shits and bashed Wilson for claiming Baby Future as his own.
Moving on, the second hit came on Baby Future’s birthday. So, in another IG post, Wilson showed love to the little tike and christened himself “Papa Russ.” Anyway, as we can all imagine, the pro-Future crowd wasn’t happy with this proclamation either. Once again, Wilson was criticized for not being Baby Future’s “real dad” and for “disrespecting Future.”
Ok, with all of that being said, I feel like Wilson’s detractors are missing the big picture here. Look, what the fuck else should Wilson be doing? I mean, if we’re all keeping it a buck, Baby Future spends more time with Wilson than Future. Bruh, he’s married to the child’s mother, for God‘s sake. I really don’t believe he’s trying to usurp Future as the boy’s father. He’s just showing the child as much love as he possibly can. Shit, what do people really want, fam? Would they be happier if he treated the child like shit and only paid attention to his biological seed? Man, I’m pretty sure Wilson would be crucified for that too.
Listen, Wilson is doing what a good stepparent is supposed to do. In the grand scheme of things, it’s better when a stepparent shows a child that type of attention. It ensures that the kid never feels less than or underappreciated. Frankly, it creates a more balanced household and provides a loving environment for everyone involved. Ultimately, if Baby Future is loved by Future, Ciara AND Wilson, is that really a bad thing? In any case, hating on a man for loving his wife’s son is fucking ridiculous, man. We all need to grow up, fam.
In the end, let Russell Wilson live. If Baby Future is happy and Ciara is happy, then no one else’s opinion matters. Shit, if some of these naysayers got more hugs when they were younger, then maybe they wouldn’t be so damn bitter, son. In the words of Funkmaster Flex, “who you mad at? Me or yourself?” LC out.
