The Zaytoven-produced project happened to coincide with Ciara and Russell Wilson’s second wedding anniversary. But despite the timing, the release was not a deliberate move against his ex, despite what fans may think.
Pure coincidence Future drops the tape on Ciara and Russell Wilson's anniversary, right?

Sources close to Future said that the Friday release date was not a calculated move. The album was originally supposed to drop on July 4, but Future felt that date was too close to the release of Drake’s Scorpion, and he didn’t want to compete with his friend.
Additionally, Future does not keep track of Ciara and Wilson’s relationship and he wasn’t aware of their anniversary.
