Future (born Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn) is one of the pioneers of putting autotune into trap music. He’s also known for bringing his toxic lyrics to the forefront of his songs. The rapper’s debut studio album Pluto was in 2012. It contained songs such as “Turn On the Lights,” “Tony Montana” (featuring Drake), and more. He followed up with Honest in 2014, which had singles “Move That Dope” (featuring Pharrell Williams and Pusha T), “I Won” (featuring Kanye West), and the title track. The rapper kept cranking out projects, including 2015’s DS2, which had the single “Where Ya At” (featuring Drake), and its follow-up Evol in 2016 with the popular track “Low Life” (featuring The Weeknd). Future was becoming hard to ignore.
The rapper has released nine studio albums to date. His last LP was I NEVER LIKED YOU, which was nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammys. It also earned a nomination for Best Rap Song (“Wait For U”) and a win for Best Melodic Rap Performance (“Wait For U”). “Wait For U” features Drake and Tems.
Future’s Lyrics Making Headlines
Like most artists, Future raps a lot about his personal life. He previously had a relationship with Ciara, and they share one son, Future Zahir, who is nine. The two got engaged in October 2013 and broke up a few months after their son was born in May 2014. The cause of their breakup was that he allegedly cheated on Ciara with his stylist, but he denied those rumors.
“I feel like 95 percent of relationships end with cheating, but me and her relationship had nothing to do with cheating,” the rapper said to Entertainment Weekly at the time.”We grew apart.”
Ciara has since moved on with Russell Wilson, who they have two children together and one on the way. However, since the break-up, the NFL star has caught a couple of strays, with many fans insinuating Future is a scornful ex.
In his feature on Quavo’s “Turn Yo Clic Up,” Future takes aim at Wilson.
“Big dawg status, bill hopper/ I ball in his mall for my brothers/ Goyard bag, tote the Corduroy/ I got it out the field, f— Russell,” Future raps.
