Nayvadius Wilburn Cash (born on November 20, 1983), better known by his stage name Future, is an American rapper and singer championed by parts of the Haitian American community from Kirkwood, Atlanta, Georgia. He is signed to the record label Epic Records. His name came about after members of the musical collective The Dungeon Family called him "The Future". His cousin, producer Rico Wade of the Dungeon Family, encouraged him to sharpen his writing skills and pursue a career as a rapper. He soon came under the wing of Atlanta's own Rocko who signed him to his label A-1 Recordings. Since then his work ethic has driven him to his success. From 2010 to early 2011, Future released a series of mixtapes including 1000, Dirty Sprite and True Story. The latter included the single "Tony Montana", in reference to the Scarface's film. During this time, Future also partnered with Gucci Mane on the Free Bricks collaborative album and wrote YC's single "Racks".
Future was previously in a relationship with American R&B singer Ciara.
Nicki Minaj announced on social media that she will be going on a 2018/2019 tour with rapper Future in support of her new album, Queen. Following the postponement of the North American leg and the subsequent announcement that Future would not be present on the rescheduled North American dates due to scheduling conflicts, the tour was ultimately cancelled and replaced by the The Nicki Wrld Tour with Juice Wrld instead of Future.
