Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn was born on November 20, 1983, in Atlanta, Georgia, to parents Nayvadius and DeMun Wilburn. His nickname “The Future” came about after he became a member of the musical collective known as The Dungeon Family.
Future’s cousin, Rico Wade, was a member of “The Dungeon Family” as well as a record producer, and he urged Future to hone his songwriting and rapping skills in order to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Wade also provided a safe haven for his young cousin, who had been living on the streets. Since his debut album, Future has repeatedly credited his cousin with being the creative force behind his distinctive style.

Career of Future
Future began producing mixtapes in 2010, with titles such as “1000,” “Dirty Sprite,” and “True Story” among them. Future collaborated with Gucci Mane on the album “Free Bricks,” which was released in 2017. When DJ Esco began playing Future’s tracks at Magic City, a prominent Atlanta strip club, Future’s music began to gain more attention and become more well known and popular. Magic City is well recognised for launching the careers of a number of Atlanta-based rappers; nevertheless, the club is also noted for other things, such as girls stripping down to their underwear.
Epic Records approached Future in the fall of 2011 about a possible collaboration. The following day, he secured a record deal and almost instantly released the mixtape “Streetz Calling,” which went on to become his most popular mixtape to date. ‘Pluto’ was the title of his debut studio album, which was released in the spring of 2012. The album contained four popular singles, the most successful of which was “Turn on the Lights,” which peaked at number two on the hip hop and R&B charts in the United States.
“Honest” was the title of his second studio album, which was released in 2014. His third studio album, “DS2,” was released in 2015, and his fourth, “Evol,” was released in 2016. The album “FUTURE” was released in February of this year. “HNDRXX,” his second studio album, was released a week later.
Future and the now-deceased rapper Juice Wrld collaborated on the mixtape “Wrld on Drugs,” which was released in mid-October 2018. It opened at number two on the Billboard 200, trailing only the soundtrack to the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga film “A Star Is Born.” Future’s tenth top ten album in the United States was “Wrld on Drugs.”
It was his seventh studio album, “Future Hndrzz Presents: The Wizrd,” that was released in January 2019. The album served as a soundtrack to the film “The Wizrd,” which was made available for streaming on Apple Music on January 11, 2019.
Future earned his first Grammy Award in February 2019 for Best Rap Performance for his contribution on the song “King’s Dead,” which was featured on the soundtrack of the film “Black Panther.” Future was also nominated for a Grammy Award in the same category the previous year. Future’s solo EP “Save Me” was published in June of this year, and it debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 rankings in the United States.
Future’s tracks “Life Is Good” and “Desires,” both of which were duets with Drake, were released in January 2020.
Future has been dubbed a “pioneer of mumble rap,” and he frequently employs Auto-Tune in his musical compositions.
Tourings of Future
Future will be embarking on two North American tour dates in the coming months. The first was the Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake, which took place in 2016. The Legendary Nights Tour with Meek Mill, which took place in 2019, was the second.
Observations on Future’s Life
Future is a prolific dater and breeder who produces a lot of offspring. He has six children from six different relationships. He can identify five of them, and one of them he is unable to identify at all. Jessica Smith, Brittni Mealy, India J, singer Ciara, and Joie Chavis are just a few of the women who have been his baby moms. He was briefly engaged to Ciara in 2013 and 2014, however the relationship ended as a result of his infidelity. Future and Ciara are the parents of a kid named Future Zahir Wilburn, who was born in May 2014 to them.
Future has been sued by both Jessica Smith and Ciara. Among other things, Smith is suing the rapper for failing to pay child support and accusing him of neglecting his son. Ciara, on the other hand, has filed a defamation, slander, and libel lawsuit against Future, alleging that he defamed her and complained about her visitation schedule in a series of Twitter posts.
In 2019, two ladies, one from Florida and the other from Texas, filed paternity claims against Future, claiming that he is the biological father of their children. Future allegedly declined to submit to a DNA test, and one of the women, Cindy Parker, withdrew her complaint, leading to the conclusion that a settlement is likely to be reached.
Eliza Seraphin, the other woman named in the case, is continuing her pursuit. As far as Seraphin is concerned, Future kept in touch with her throughout her pregnancy. She said that he instructed her to notify him when the baby was due and promised to provide financial support for the child. As of August 2020, Eliza will be requesting that the courts place Future in prison.
So, officially, Future is the father of at least seven children, and possibly as many as eight.
As stated by the New York Post, Future is currently dating Lori Harvey, the daughter of television personality and comedian Steve Harvey.
