Future net worth: Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, known professionally as Future, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer who has a net worth of $40 million. Future began writing and rapping on the suggestion of his cousin, Rico Wade, a member of the Dungeon Family collective.
Early Life: Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn was born on November 20, 1983, in Atlanta, Georgia. He began using his stage name while performing as one of the members of the musical collective The Dungeon Family, where he was nicknamed "The Future." His first cousin Rico Wade, a record producer and Dungeon Family member encouraged him to sharpen his writing skills and pursue a career as a rapper. He also provided Future with temporary respite from street life. He attended Columbia High School in Decatur, Georgia. Future has called his cousin's musical influence the mastermind behind his sound. Atlanta rapper Rocko signed Future to his A1 Recordings label.
Career: Future started releasing mixtapes in 2010 including 1000, Dirty Sprite, and True Story. He also partnered with rapper Gucci Mane during this time on their collaborative album Free Bricks. He also co-wrote and was featured on YC's single "Racks." After DJ Esco played his songs at the Atlanta strip club, Magic City, he gained more notice and popularity. For what it's worth, Magic City is considered a place that has been responsible for the career launch of several rap artists. His increasing profile led to an offer to sign with Epic Records in the fall of 2011. The mixtape he released just after signing with the label, "Streetz Calling," proved to be his most successful, receiving rave reviews from XXL and Pitchfork Media, among other online and print publications. He released several mixtapes, and his first studio album "Pluto" dropped in April of 2012. The album spawned four successful singles, including "Turn on the Lights," which peaked at #2 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, #4 on the U.S. Rap Songs charts, and #1 on the Heatseekers Song charts. Future released a second studio album titled "Honest" in 2014. His third studio album "DS2" was released in 2015 and a fourth studio album "Evol" was released in February 2016. In September 2015, Future released a joint mixtape with Drake called "What A Time To Be Alive." In February 2017 Future released an album titled "FUTURE" and a week later he released another album titled "HNDRXX."
On October 19, 2018, Future released Wrld On Drugs, a collaborative mixtape with the now late American rapper Juice Wrld. Wrld on Drugs debuted at number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 behind A Star Is Born by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. It became Future's tenth top-ten album in the United States, and Juice Wrld's second. In January 2019, Future released his seventh studio album, Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd. The album consists of 20 songs and was promoted by a film titled The Wizrd, released on January 11 on Apple Music. The Wizrd received generally positive reviews from critics and became Future's sixth U.S. number-one album, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200. With the release of The Wizrd, several songs from the album charted on the Billboard Hot 100, making Future the artist with the 10th most entries in Hot 100 history.
At the 61st Annual Grammy Awards held on February 10, 2019, Future won his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance for his collaboration alongside Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar and James Blake for the song, "King's Dead," from the soundtrack of the film Black Panther. On June 7, 2019, Future released his second project of the year, his debut solo EP titled Save Me, which received mixed reviews from music critics and debuted at number 5 on the US Billboard 200. In January 2020, Future released the songs "Life Is Good" and "Desires," both collaborations with Drake.
Future makes prevalent use of Auto-Tune in his songs, both rapping and singing with the effect. He's been called a pioneer of mumble rap. Pitchfork Media wrote that Future "miraculously shows that it's still possible for Auto-Tune to be an interesting artistic tool," stating that he "finds a multitude of ways for the software to accentuate and color emotion." Future's music is generally characterized in the genre of trap music.
Touring: Future has embarked on two North American tours. The first was the Summer Sixteen Tour in 2016 with Drake. The second was the Legendary Nights Tour with Meek Mill in 2019.
Personal Life: Future currently has six children with six different women: Jessica Smith, Brittni Mealy, India J, singer Ciara, Joie Chavis, and an unidentified woman. He was engaged to Ciara in October 2013. Their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, was born on May 19, 2014. Ciara ended the engagement in August 2014 due to his infidelity. His fifth child, Hendrix, was born in December 2018.
Future has been sued by both Jessica Smith and Ciara. Smith is suing him for failing to pay child support, and stated that their son "suffers from emotional and behavioral issues stemming from Future's neglect as a father." Ciara sued him for defamation, slander, and libel. In October 2016, a judge said that Future's string of tweets bashing Ciara and complaining about his visitation rights with their son did not relate to the $15 million she was asking for. In 2019, two women from Florida and Texas respectively filed paternity suits claiming that Future was the father of their respective daughter and son; if he is confirmed to be the father it would bring the number of his children to eight.
Salary Highlights: Between September 2017 and September 2018, Future grossed $30 million through touring, endorsements, royalties and more. That was enough to make him one of the 10 highest paid rappers on the planet. In the year prior he earned $23 million, bringing his total earnings over that two year period to $53 million. In the same time period, he produced 3 billion streams of his songs. Between September 2018 and September 2019, Future earned $20 million, bringing his earnings since 2017 up to $73 million.
