Video: MTV’s Hottest MCs In The Game: #9 Future

Future Hendrix takes MTV News‘ #9 “Hottest MCs In The Game” spot.

What began as a strictly underground run began to take off in 2011 with Future’s “Tony Montana” single and its Drake-assisted remix. During 2012, however, Future sky-rocketed to new heights with high-powered pop hooks, while still keeping his hold on the streets. His mix of melodic arrangements and raspy rap bars were a sure-shot formula for some of the year’s biggest hits.

Whether it was the gold-selling, chart-topping syrupy ballad “Turn on the Lights,” the T.I.-backed “Magic” or the infectious “Same Damn Time,” Future seemed to have club staples on lock. But it was his guest spots on songs like Rihanna’s “Loveeeeeee Song” and Lil Wayne’s “Love Me” that helped create a sense that the Atlanta rapper/songwriter was omnipresent. “Love Me” is a top 10 Billboard hit, and if the Rihanna record ever gets released as a single, it has the potential to do the same.
