In the early 2010s, Future, an Atlanta rapper, rose to prominence as a result of his prolific and consistent output, as well as his distinctive rapping style. He’s a household name around the world, and each of his albums consistently hits the top of the charts. The rapper rarely ventures outside of the music industry and relies on it as his major and practically sole source of income.
On November 20, 1983, Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn was born in Atlanta, Georgia. When he joined the band The Dungeon Family, he was dubbed “The Future” because of his bright future. When Future was growing up, his cousin Rico Wade, who was also a musician and record producer in “The Dungeon Family,” urged him to pursue a career in music. Wade also provided a haven for his street-dwelling cousin. Future has given his cousin a lot of credit for his distinctive sound over the years.
