Happy 37th birthday, Future!

Future was born Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn on Nov. 20, 1983. So where did he get his nickname? After growing up in Atlanta, he entered the music scene as part of the Dungeon Family collective, where he picked up the nickname, “the Future.” That evolved to simply, “Future!”

Here are some of his best songs!
