After releasing a string of mixtapes, Future created a big buzz for himself in his hometown of Atlanta. But after laying the vocals on YC's infectious summer anthem "Racks" and making the smash hit "Tony Montana," he successfully introduced himself to the mainstream market back in 2011. Groomed under the wing of his cousin Rico Wade (part of the Dungeon Family), the Zone 6 rapper has gained the support of everyone from T.I. to Young Jeezy. Now signed to Epic Records, his debut album, Pluto
, was released in early 2012. Future is set to drop his sophomore LP, Future Hendrix
, in 2013 and is making even more headlines as the new boyfriend of R&B superstar Ciara.
