Although Falcons head coach Dan Quinn denied it, it looks like the Falcons will be using their home field advantage to get under Russell Wilson’s skin this weekend. And for that, you can thank the stadium DJ, of all people.
Russell Wilson has a public feud with Atlanta rapper Future, who used to date and has a child with Wilson’s wife Ciara. Future and Ciara have had very public disputes over child support issues, a child that Wilson now raises with Ciara. So naturally, the stadium DJ made sure to pack the playlist full of Future tracks.
The last few days has been hella funny and so dope to see my Falcons Family hitting me up asking if I know what I'm going to play for the game on Saturday. But y'all do know I was born and raised in South Atlanta right? I was a Falcons fan since birth. It's tatted on my neck and I rep this city and this team to the fullest. So just in case you're not sure what I'm playing… here's my playlist I made for Russell. #riseup #FutureMixforRussell
The DJ defended himself by saying that he plays Future songs at every home game, and that not playing Future in Atlanta would be like not playing Kanye in Chicago. Head coach Dan Quinn denied that the team would stoop to such methods, but when Complex reached out to the DJ, he said no one from the Falcons had contacted him about the music choices.
“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.”
