Nayvadius DeMun Wilbur (born November 20, 1983), better known by his stage name Future, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. Future first became involved in music as part of the Dungeon Family collective, where he was nicknamed "the Future". After amassing a series of mixtapes between 2010 and 2011, Future signed a major record label deal with Epic Records and A1 Recordings, which helped launch Future's own label imprint, Freebandz. He subsequently released his debut album, Pluto, in April 2012 to positive reviews. Future's second album, Honest, was released in April 2014, surpassing his debut on the album charts.

Between late 2014 and early 2015, he released a trio of mixtapes to critical praise: Monster in 2014, and Beast Mode and 56 Nights in 2015. His next releases, DS2 and his Drake collaboration What a Time to Be Alive (2015), EVOL (2016), FUTURE and HNDRXX (2017), and The WIZRD (2019) all debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. The latter two made him the first artist to debut two albums in consecutive weeks at the top of the chart. Future has also released several singles certified gold or higher by the RIAA, including "Turn On the Lights", "Move That Dope", "Fuck Up Some Commas", "Where Ya At", "Jumpman", "Low Life" and "Mask Off".
