Rising Icon: Future


Nayvadius Wilburn




Atlanta, GA

Who is that guy? That’s what a lot of rap fans have been saying about the man behind one of the biggest rap songs of the year, “Tony Montana.” That guy is Future, one of the hottest rappers coming out of the ATL right now. Between “Tony Montana” and his guest appearance on fellow Georgia rapper YC’s “Racks” this year, the cousin of Dungeon Family’s Rico Wade owned the clubs (and the charts!) and gave us plenty to talk about in 2011—even though we didn’t really know his name.

That’s all going to change for him soon, though. Future has earned his spot as a Rising Icon it’s only a matter of time before everyone is saying “Ohhhh, that guy!” when they hear one of his songs come on the radio. Congrats, Future. You’re finally about to be famous!
