Nayvadius D. Wilburn aka Nayvadius Cash aka Future is an Atlanta-based rapper and songwriter with a net worth of $3 million. He broke out of the underground in 2011 with the hit song “Tony Montana.”
Born in 1983, Wilburn was dubbed “Future” by his Atlanta crew the Dungeon Family because they saw him as “the future of rap.” After leaving the Dungeon Crew, he signed to the Atlanta-based label A1 Recordings, and began to release mixtapes on his own. His “True Story” mixtape included the single “Tony Montana,” which became a huge underground street hit. In 2011 he also partnered up with Gucci Mane to release the collaborative mixtape “Free Bricks.” That same year, he also wrote the song “Racks,” which became a hit single for rapper Y.C.
After the success of “Tony Montana,” Future signed with Epic Records and started work on his first studio album, titled “Pluto.” In the meantime, though, he continued his habit of releasing successful mixtapes.
In 2012, “Pluto” officially dropped. The album featured guest appearances from rappers like Drake, R. Kelly, T.I., and Snoop Dogg. This album also spawned the single “Magic,” featuring T.I., which became Future’s first song to hit the Billboard 100 chart.
“Pluto” was later repackaged as “Pluto 3D” featuring new tracks and contributions from Diddy and Ludacris.
In 2012, after signing with Epic, Future formed Freebandz Records as a joint venture with Epic Records. The label’s roster includes up-and-coming hip-hop artists like Slice9, Casino, Mexico Rann and Maceo. The label has released solo mixtapes for several artists, as well as two group albums.
Future has announced that his next album, to be called “Future Hendrix,” will be released sometime in 2013. The album is said to be more musically ambitious than “Pluto,” and will also include guest appearances by a number of stars including Kanye West, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Andre 3000.
Future has also become a popular guest star on other rappers’ recordings. In 2013, he appeared on a remix of Rick Ross’ “U.O.E.N.O,” which peaked at number 33 on the Billboard 100 chart.
