FUTURE is music’s most prolific artist. There is no other rapper, singer or writer who simultaneously moves the streets and the Billboard charts with an influence that resonates with stars like Drake, Rihanna and everyone else in between. With 13 gold and platinum singles and top selling albums like DS2, EVOL and What a Time To Be Alive to his name, Future’s rank in the game is unmatched.

Coming up under the Dungeon Family, his producer cousin Rico Wade, Goodie Mob and OutKast, Future had the best teachers any aspiring hip-hop artist could ask for. But it didn’t take long for the student to become a master. With a style that mixes rapping with melodic chants and psychedelic street harmonies, Future has become one of music’s most sought after features, collaborating on tracks with Lil Wayne (“Love Me”), Ariana Grande (“Everyday”), DJ Khaled (“I Got The Keys”), Justin Bieber (“What’s Hatnin”) and Usher (“Rivals”).
For the uninitiated, it may be hard to imagine Future’s star shining any brighter. But longtime fans know that he will raise the bar higher each time out.
