Nayvadius Cash, better known by his stage name Future, is an American hip-hop artist and rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. Since he burst onto the scene in 2010, Future has defined himself by his unique style, which embraces the robotic, gurgling weirdness of autotune in a way no one else does. He’s collaborated with everyone, from Drake and Pharrell Williams, to Miley Cyrus and Kanye West. The man has a net worth in the millions, and if he keeps putting out projects at such a rapid pace, it’s a number that’s only going to increase.
Future Net Worth as of 2018: $3.5 Million
Now, we’ll take a look back through Future’s past to see how he accumulated his net worth.
2010 – 2011
Over the years, Future has gained a reputation for being a prolific rapper, nearly constantly releasing new music. No where is this better seen than in his early career. From 2010 to early 2011, Future released a series of mixtapes—1000, Streetz Calling, Dirty Sprite, and True Story. Keep in mind, that’s over the course of two years. His hard work paid, though. In 2011, Future signed a deal with Epic Records.
Future’s debut album Pluto is released in April to generally positive reviews. “At times tasteful and other times tasteless,” wrote one reviewer, “Pluto demonstrates a bravado that knows no shame.” The album produced five singles, all of which managed to secure a spot on Billboard‘s Hot Top 100 chart.
Astronaut Status, another mixtape, was actually released shortly before Pluto because, why not?
Of course, the Future wasn’t done with 2012 yet. In November of that same year, he re-released Pluto—the re-packaged album was dubbed Pluto 3D. It featured 3 new songs and 2 remix songs including the remix for “Same Damn Time” featuring Diddy and Ludacris, as well as his newest street single “Neva End (Remix)” featuring Kelly Rowland.
2013 – 2015
Honest, Future’s second album, was released in April 2014. “Lots of rappers talk about drugs, but Future is one of the few whose music makes you feel like you’re actually on some,” wrote The Rolling Stone in its review. “When he raps, it’s in pulse-racing staccato bursts; when he sings, his Auto-Tuned vowels stretch and melt like alien dreams.”
But, Future wasn’t done surprising. In July of 2015, he unexpectedly dropped his third album—DS2—which got him his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
On Sept. 20, Future collaborated with Drake to make the mixtape What a Time to Be Alive, which was released on iTunes and Apple Music.
2016 – 2017
With only eleven hours notice, on Jan. 17, 2016, Future released his first mixtape of the year: Purple Reign. He’s stayed extremely busy in 2016 and 2017, dropping three studio albums called EVOL (2016), FUTURE (2017), and HNDRXX (2017).
Future started his New Year by spending the eve with the mother of Bow Wow’s six-year-old daughter Joie Chavis.
