Future Headed to ‘Saturday Night Live’ in March
The Atlanta rapper will be a guest performer on the March 5 episode of the long-running sketch comedy show along with actor Jonah Hill, who will be guest host, NBC reports.
The "Fly Shit Only" rhymer is enjoying a hell of a run which includes putting out three projects that have topped the Billboard 200 in the last seven months.
He started off dropping DS2 last July, which quickly nabbed the No. 1 spot after moving 126,000 copies in its first week on sale. That was followed by his collab with Drake What a Time to Be Alive, which dropped in September 2015, and has since been certified gold off the strength of one single, "Jumpman." Earlier this month, he dropped his latest album, EVOL, which pushed 100,000 copies off the shelf in seven days. Future has yet to push an official single off the project. All three of those albums have hit #1, making Future the fastest act to reach that mark three times since the cast of Glee.
While he is doing nothing but winning on the music front, Hendrix has been going through it on the co-parenting side of things. Recently, he and former fiancee Ciara have been going through an ugly battle over their son that has spread into social media. After taking to Twitter vent his frustrations about the situation, Future now finds himself being sued for libel by Ci Ci for $15 million. Sources say he has plans to counter her suit. While this is getting really messy, it seems to be all the battery Future needs to pump out hit after hit.
