In early March, speculation of guest features hit the Internet.
Future is launching into space with some familiar faces this spring. The hip-hop newcomer has enlisted a star-studded cast of collaborators for his debut Pluto. The Dungeon Family-bred rapper’s Epic Records debut will land in stores on April 17 featuring appearances from hip-hop heavyweights T.I., Drake, Ludacris, R. Kelly, and Snoop Dogg. The album will include the T.I.-assisted single “Magic” and street anthem “Tony Montana” featuring Drake. Prior to Pluto’s arrival, Future will drop a video for “Same D*mn Time,” described as a “super-charged call out record.” The visuals, directed by Dr. Teeth, were filmed in his hometown of Atlanta and will premiere later this month.

Although not actually listed to appear on his new album, Future recently named rap heavyweights Kanye West and Lil Wayne as his two favorite emcees.
“My three wishes are just be respected out the game. I want respect from everybody. And just make a successful clothing line and company. I’m not going to put a number on it. Just to have a great career…My favorite rappers are, I can’t really say. I like Kanye because he’s so creative. He’ll just do anything. I like what Kanye [West]‘s bringing to the game. Lil Wayne. I like Wayne…[The future?] [I see myself] running rap, running this era. The radio is going to sound like Future.” (Global Grind)
In November, Future spoke openly about rejecting Lil Wayne’s request to hop on his “Tony Montana” remix.
According to Future, not only was Drake vying for a guest spot on the hot track, but his Young Money labelhead Lil Wayne wanted to jump on it, too. “He told me how much of a fan he was of mine and he was like, ‘Wayne wants to get on it, too,’” recalls Future, who declined the offer. “I was like, ‘Wayne not gonna get on it.’ Too many big artists on the song already… That’s why I didn’t want him and Wayne on the song.” (XXL Mag)
Future’s Pluto is slated to drop, Tuesday, April 17th.
