Besides that little $15 million lawsuit filed by Ciara for defamation, Future’s doing pretty great. His Apple Music exclusive, EVOL, just gave him another No. 1 on Billboard, reportedly selling 108,000 copies its first week in pure sales and an additional 31,000 copies via streams. The release gives the “Codeine Crazy” rapper his third No. 1 album in just seven months. And the achievements just keep on coming because Future’s heading to SNL next. Sensational.
NBC announced Saturday night that Future and funnyman Jonah Hill will be taking over the show March 5th. It will be Future’s first appearance on the mildly entertaining program and Jonah’s fourth. His appearance also means South Carolina fans who purchased tickets to see the lean leader perform Purple Reign on March 5th will now obviously have to wait due to the conflicting schedulings. No word on a rescheduled date.
