In the music industry whether hip-hop or any other form of show, reaching the standard of a billionaire is one of the targeted goals that very few performers attain.
Not just the funds but also a generous proportion of business awareness is included as one of the requirements too, which is the reason why only a few performing artists have successfully reached the feat.
Just of recent, Future made his intentions of joining the club known in an interview with Billboard.
A Billboard interviewer questioned Future about his plans for his tenth studio album after he had released his ninth. Future’s aspirations were expressed in simply financial terms rather than focusing on his creative aspirations:
“Right now, all of my attention is on trying something new. I haven’t ever made a billion bucks, for one reason. I’m focused on that because I haven’t done it.”
Future elaborated that he’s contacted nameless billionaires for advice on how to achieve that coveted position, which almost seems like he’s boasting or self-promoting, but it seems like Future is taking the aim of being wealthy seriously.
“If I encounter a millionaire, I occasionally inquire about how they arrived at their position. Alternatively, “How did you manage to accomplish everything you have?” “he clarified “With diverse, accomplished people, I have those chats. I might acquire mine in a different manner, though. When I speak with folks who have billions, it simply helps me to recognize that I’m on the correct track.”
The billionaires from whom he has sought counsel appear to believe that he might just join the club, he continues:
“I immediately feel like I’m on the correct track after hearing them speak. I feel more confident knowing I’m acting morally thanks to them. I want to be able to have that friend who always has my back, no matter what my music career entails and simply priceless people who can get me where I need to go. I know I have wonderful individuals around me, even when things are stressful for me. I received unwavering love.”
Of course, it’s important to note that every famous musician who has amassed enormous wealth, such as Jay-Z and Rihanna, didn’t do so just via their jobs as musicians and record producers; has also made significant investments in other fields to achieve this.
Future probably won’t become a billionaire based only on the success of his upcoming record, even if it is a huge hit.
Future is undoubtedly aware of this, and if he is, his billionaire goals must go much beyond merely making music if he is sincere about achieving them.
With a very solid $50 million net worth, Future has already seen a lot of success in the music industry, but he still has a long way to go before reaching the billion-dollar milestone.
