Your guide to Philly's diverse creative scene, nightlife, music, food & more
Hailing from the dirty south, Future has worked hard to solidify his position as one of the hottest rappers in the game. His career started to take shape when he hooked up with his hit-producing cousin, Rico Love, who made a name for himself working with notable acts like TLA, Outkast and Goodie Mob. Capitalizing on his building buzz, Future made major moves after penning the hook for Ludacris' 2004 track "Blueberry Yum Yum" on his The Red Light District album.
He later would achieve certified Gold status for YC's hit song "Racks," for which he wrote and was also featured as an artist. The song would go on to be remixed by an insane list of major artists, including Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Nelly. In 2012 and 2013, Future released his debut and sophomoric album featuring hitmaking acts like Drake, R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg, T.I. Juicy J, Pusha T, Pharrell, Casino, Kanye West, Young Scooter, Andre 3000, and Lil Wayne.
