A true music entrepreneur, Futuristic embodies everything that is bold and exciting about hip-hop music today. From his early days as a rapper in Tempe, AZ to making videos on the streets of LA, Futuristic has always been the ultimate charming hustler. He uses the power of the internet, social media, and his own business savvy to distribute music online while never having to hand out free mixtapes. He has smartly and steadily built himself a bigger audience by booking and promoting shows for more established artists while adding himself to the bill as the opening act. The result: a huge, new loyal following in the US and abroad as well as cash flow from album and ticket sales.
