Future, the soulful versifier, originating from Palm Beach, FL, has ambitions not common among other 20-year-old rappers. “I want to inspire with my music, and encourage people to focus on their opportunities, instead of their insecurities.” Dubbing his sound “deep at the core, but something with life,” Future stimulates thought with each verse and movement with every bass line.

Young Future

The mature, goal-driven artist relocated to New York City in 2003, where he developed his creativity, talent, and love for hip-hop. His rap debut began on a gospel note when he performed a spiritual cover of Snoop Dogg’s hit “Drop It Like It’s Hot” for his Brooklyn church. His ability to carve precise, heartfelt lyrics, no matter the topic at hand, allows Future to be absorbed by a variety of audiences. Captivated by the ardor and dynamic resonance of the north east, Future ignites his dream by beginning to first produce, then write, engulfing his life with music. “Music is my food.”

and the FUTURE was born…

Future presents himself as a steady contender among the new faces of young hip hop today. His appearance on RockMeTV’s Round Table, hosted by Lenny S, Maya the B, and Big Lite in November 2008, landed Future the opportunity to disclose his first mixtape “Focus on the Future, Forget about the Past.” He partnered with Theophilus London, a major figure in the indie-rap game, on the single “Weakas,” as well as on projects at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn. Circulating on mixtape sites, the release has brought Future to the attention of popular blogs such as Nah Right, 2dopeboyz, Ill Vibes, and many more.

Future’s August 2008 collaboration with electro hip hop artist Mickey Factz on the track “Rollin’ Stone” earned him the “Heater of the Day” feature on In April 2008, Future graced the stage of HOT 97’s Who’s Next Contest, hosted by Peter Rosenberg, taking home the winning title. Future’s laid-back facade and syncopated stream was also demonstrated at the notable SOBs, in New York City, alongside 9th Wonder and Buckshot. His emergence among the metro-area is paramount and reveals his enthusiasm for the art, while staying true to his Palm Beach pedigree.

Future lives the motto of his mixtape – “Focus on the future, forget about the past,” whether it pertains to his life, music, or the reality of the everyday world. The doting humanitarian wears the colors of commercial appeal, but carries his rhymes with the sweltering force of an underground approach. Future’s espionage, “James Bond of rap” manner surpasses the ability to tag his sound as one, allowing listeners to call the music as they feel it.
