Future‘s career-long chart run (on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 respectively) since his 2012 debut, ‘Pluto,’ has been out of this world to say the least.
On the Billboard 200 front the rapper’s seen all six of his studio efforts and both of his “retail mixtapes” debut in the tally’s top 10 upon their releases, five of them hitting #1. In fact, to date the hitmaker (born Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn) remains the first and only act to top the chart over two consecutive weeks with two different albums.
And, while his placements on main album chart is his overall crowning glory, his mentions on the Billboard Hot 100 are certainly nothing to shake a stick at. Thanks to a plethora of guest starring appearances and a copious flow of releases as a lead act, Wilburn’s cemented his name in history books as the fifth-longest charting streak ever on the main singles chart thanks to the departure of the Kendrick Lamar-led single ‘Kings Dead’ (which features Future and Jay Rock) this week. Ending a 166 consecutive week run, only fellow rappers Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj, and singer Rihanna have spent longer spells on the Hot 100.
