Future Net Worth: $10 million
Future, a rapper from Atlanta, Georgia has an estimated net worth of $10 million as of January 2017. He was encouraged to pursue rapping as a career by Rico Wade, a cousin who is also a producer and member of the hip hop collective group Dungeon Family.
“Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn”, now legally known as Nayvadius Cash, began being called Future when he started contributing rap songs for the Dungeon Family. Future comes with a lot of monikers including Future Hendrix, Super Future and Astronaut Kid.
His career as a rapper began in 2010 when he started releasing mixtapes. He eventually did a recording with fellow rapper Gucci Mane. This gave his emerging career a big boost
In 2011, days before the release of his ‘Streetz Calling’ mixtape, he got himself a recording deal from Epic Records. He continued releasing several mixtapes until the release of his first full album, “Pluto” in 2012. “Pluto” produced four hit singles, the most successful of which was “Turn on Lights” which hit # 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Song Chart. This same single also rose to the top 5 slot of the US R&B Charts, the Hip-Hop Song Charts and the US Rap Song Charts. In 2014, Future released his second album, “Honest.” In his 12 years singing career, 3 of his albums became number one hits.
Future’s huge net worth as a hit rapper mainly comes from his albums. His highest earning albums earned for him a vast fortune. He earned $480,000 for ‘Streetz Calling,’ $850,000 for ‘Astronaut Status,’ $1 million for ‘Welcome 2 Mollyworld,” $1.25 million for ‘Future Hendrix and $2 million for ‘Pluto.’
Future has hit it big on the music scene through successful career strategies. He’s continuously collaborated with well-known pop artists so he could reach a wider market.
His net worth was also hugely augmented by endorsement deals, the most notable of which were with Reebok’s ‘Zoku Runner Campaign.’ This Reebok line includes a sneaker Future co-designed with the shoe brand. Future also earns huge amounts from royalties and merchandise sold during his concerts. There are however conflicting reports as to Future’s exact net worth. Some sources say that he is worth between $2 million and $10 million.
