Summer Jam Stadium Stage: Future

Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn (born November 20, 1983), known professionally as Future is an American hip hoprecording artist. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Wilburn first became involved in music as part of the Dungeon Family, where he received the nickname "the Future."

After amassing a series of mixtapes between 2010 and 2011, Future signed a major-label deal with Epic Records and A1 Recordings, which helped launch Future's own label imprint, Freebandz. He subsequently began working on his debut album Pluto, which was released in April 2012 to positive reviews.

Future's second album, Honest, was released in April 2014, where it surpassed his debut on the album charts.

In 2015, his third studio album, DS2, and his collaborative effort with Drake, What a Time to Be Alive, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. Future premiered his fourth solo album EVOL, in February 2016, on DJ Khaled's We The Best Radio's debut on Beats 1.
