His name came about after members of The Dungeon Family called him "The Future". His cousin, producer Rico Wade of Dungeon Family, encouraged him to sharpen his writing skills and pursue a career as a rapper. From 2010 to early 2011, Future released a series of mixtapes including 1000, Dirty Sprite and True Story. The latter included the single "Tony Montana", in reference to the Scarface film. During this time, Future also partnered with Gucci Mane on the Free Bricks collaborative album and wrote YC's single "Racks".
Future signed a major label deal with Epic Label Group in September 2011, days before the release of his next mixtape, Streetz Calling. The mixtape was described by XXL magazine as ranging from "simple and soundly executed boasts" to "futuristic drinking and drugging jams" to "tales of the grind." Jordan Sargent of Pitchfork Media remarked that on the mixtape, Future comes "as close as anyone to perfecting this thread of ringtone pop, where singing and rapping are practically the same thing, and conversing 100% through Auto-Tune doesn't mean you still can't talk about how you used to sell drugs. It would almost feel antiquated if Future weren't amassing hits, or if he weren't bringing some subtle new dimensions to the micro-genre."
Though Future had told MTV that Streetz Calling would be his final mixtape prior to the release of his debut studio album, another mixtape, Astronaut Status, was released in January 2012. Before his album being released in April 2012. XXL's Troy Mathews wrote, "While Astronaut Status is up and down and never really hits the highs like 'Racks', 'Tony Montana', and 'Magic' that fans have come to expect from Future, it’s apparent that he’s poised to continue the buzz of 2011 humming right along into 2012." Future was selected to the annual XXL Freshmen list in early 2012.
His debut album Pluto, originally planned for January, was eventually released on April 17. It will include remixes of "Tony Montana" featuring Drake and "Magic" featuring T.I.. According to Future, "'Magic' was the first record T.I. jumped on when he came outta jail. Like, he was out of jail a day and he jumped straight on the 'Magic' record without me even knowing about it." The track became Future's first single to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Other collaborators on the album include R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg and Trae Tha Truth. On October 8, 2012, Pusha T released "Pain" featuring Future, the first single from his upcoming debut album.
It was announced that future will be repackaging his debut album Pluto on November 27th, 2012 under the name Pluto 3D featuring 3 New songs & 2 Remix songs including the Remix for Same Damn Time featuring Diddy & Ludacris, as well as his newest street single Neva End (Remix) featuring Kelly Rowland. In 2012, Future wrote, produced and featured on "Loveeeeeee Song" taken from Barbadian singer Rihanna's seventh studio album Unapologetic. After his album release he will release a new mixtape entitled, Super Future. Future said of his second studio album Future Hendrix it will be a more substantive musical affair than his debut album and will feature R&B music along with his usual "street bangers." The album will be released in 2013. The album will feature Kanye West, Rihanna, Drake, Kelly Rowland, Jeremih, Ace Hood, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, & many more. Including same productions from Mike WiLL Made It, Sonny Digital, Will-A-Fool, DJ Spinz & more
