How Future Achieved a Net Worth of $30 Million From His Music Career

If you do not listen to what churchgoers describe as secular music, and do not pay attention to blog posts that carry gossip about celebrities, finding out that the rapper and record producer named Future has been able to achieve a net worth of $30 million might be somewhat surprising. However, if songs like “Turn On the Lights”, “Move That Dope”, “Jumpman”, and “Mask Off” have at some time been your favorite songs to workout or dance to, then the Atlanta, Georgia native is definitely no stranger and his earnings are nothing but a confirmation that he is being duly rewarded for his hard work.

How Future Achieved a Net Worth of $30 Million From His Music Career

As a way to get Future away from the street life that results in either death or jail time for black boys in the Atlanta area, the rapper’s cousin, record producer Rico Wade, encouraged him to pursue a music career while he was a student at Columbia High School. He soon became one of the members of the musical collective The Dungeon Family which Wade was a part of, learning the ropes of the industry, sharpening his songwriting skills, and perfecting his musical style of rapping and singing, which gained the attention of Atlanta rapper Rocko, who put him under his wing and also signed him to his label, A1 Recordings.

Between 2010 and 2011, Future showed his outstanding work ethic as he released a series of mixtapes that received some airplay and was welcomed by club DJs. This put him on the radar of other mainstream rappers like Gucci Mane and YC who looked to feature him on their projects, thus giving him more exposure.

With so much hype now around him, Future was able to garner himself a recording contract with a major label in late 2011 as he released a couple more mixtapes before his debut album, Pluto, hit the shelves. Pluto was released in April 2012 and it included remixes of some of his hits from his old mixtapes with the likes of Drake, Trae Tha Truth, R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg, and T.I. featured on the album.

As you would expect, Future headed out on a number of tours, both alone and with other artists, to back the sales of his debut effort and add a few zeros to his net worth. The most notable tour he was a part of was Drake’s The Would You Like a Tour? which saw the pair, as well as other artists like Miguel, Jhené Aiko, PARTYNEXTDOOR and The Weeknd, perform across North America, Europe, and Oceania. In the end, the tour grossed over $46 million, making it one of the highest-grossing hip-hop tours of all time as his album, which achieved a US Billboard peak position of 8, was at the end certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

A second album titled Honest was released in April 2014 before another titled DS2 and a collaborative album with Drake titled What a Time to Be Alive was released in 2015. Honest was certified Gold while the two later releases gave Future his first Platinum certifications. DS2 was certified double platinum while What a Time to Be Alive was certified platinum.

Sticking to his reputation of being a hard worker, Future seemed to have never left the studio in the following years as he has kept on featuring on other artists body of works while releasing his own mixtapes and albums. As of 2019, the rapper and singer has released seven studio albums and twenty mixtapes.

Other Ventures That Contributed To His Earnings

In addition to music, Future has gotten involved in other ventures that have contributed to his net worth. Most notable among his other endeavors is a collaboration with well-known designer and fashion legend Giorgio Armani, who created a Bugatti capsule collection that the singer, who famously sang about waking up in an earlier model of the luxury $2.6 million hypercar, is to model.

If more collaborations like this come his way in the future, he is certain to see his earnings skyrocket. On the other hand, Future’s net worth might possibly take a hit in the coming years if a judge orders him to pay his ex-fiance, Ciara, $15 million after she filed a defamation, slander, and libel suit against him.
