Future’s melodic and frantic vocal style, as well as his knack for selecting top-tier production to match his pliable delivery, has made him one of Hip Hop’s most fan-approved artists. Starting with his debut album, Pluto, almost all of Future’s LPs have gone platinum.

The commercial wins are a byproduct of his street-level success. Oftentimes, the star’s projects play like distillations of some of his most revered mixtapes, like 56 Nights and Monster, with some worthy songs not even making the cut. For example, one of his most popular tunes, “March Madness,” isn’t found on any of his proper albums. Then, there are his collaborative projects like the critically acclaimed What A Time To Be Alive with Drake.

But, the focus of this list will be his discography of official solo studio albums that feature dozens of his trademark hits such as “Tony Montana,” “Turn Off The Lights,” “Mask Off” and “F**k Up Some Commas” that will now and forever be classics. Check out Future’s solo albums ranked below.


The searing, Southside-produced track “Wicked,” originally a mixtape record, resonated so strongly with Future’s fans, plans shifted and it became the lead single for his fourth studio album EVOL. The usual cast of characters (Metro Boomin, TM88, Southside) handled the sounds for routine tunes about sex, drugs and flexing. A short affair by Future Hendrix standards, the 12-track project’s only guest is The Weeknd on the moody “Low Life.”

8. High Off Life

Released less than a year after the well-received The Wzrd, Future must have felt he could come better -- and he did. Albums deep at this point, the star’s High Off Life delivered on his consistent mix of grooves and trap life tracks about overconfidence, toxic romance and introspection. High Off Life saw Future teaming up with some of his most talented contemporaries like Drake on the anthemic “Life Is Good,” Travis Scott on the numbing “Solitaires,” and Meek Mill and Doe Boy on the fiery “100 Shooters.”

7. The Wzrd

Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd is Future’s seventh album and found him fully in control of his rap powers. Interestingly, his longtime collaborator Metro Boomin was absent from the project, but plenty of talented producers picked up the weight. Southside produced the upbeat “Jumpin On A Jet” while ATL Jacob cooked up the breezy “First Off” featuring Travis Scott. Though this album may have been less ground-breaking than some of his others, Future still delivered another winning entry into his ever-growing catalog.

6 . Honest

This sophomore album managed to up his star power exponentially with guests including André 3000, Kanye West, Drake and Lil Wayne. The Atlanta rap titan was arguably at the peak of his promethazine-fueled powers and managed to be the focal point despite his heavy-hitting features.

Future benefited from pressing the gas on his own flows, like when he experimented with a staccato delivery on “Karate Chop.” Although Young Metro held down the aforementioned lead single, Mike WiLL Made-It knocked it out of the park with smash singles “S**t” and “Move That Dope,” featuring Pusha T, Pharrell and Casino.

5. Pluto

Pluto was Future’s first proper album after a string of scene-stealing guest spots and high-quality mixtapes, and it quickly confirmed that there was no dip in quality after he linked with a major label: Epic Records. The album’s lead single, “Tony Montana,” was already a monster hit by itself, then it soared to new heights when Drake jumped on the official remix.

The LP’s guest list featured Hip Hop star-power like Juicy J and Snoop Dogg. Hits like “Same Damn Time” and “Magic” went hard off the strength of Future’s earworm hooks and vibes. But, the remixes — featuring Diddy and Ludacris, respectively — also fared well.

4 . Future

While Future would tap into his somewhat softer side on Hndrxx, the “Too Many Nights” rapper stayed rooted firmly in his trap anthem mode. However, the project’s biggest hit was the hypnotic, Metro Boomin-produced “Mask Off,” which features lush flutes. With the lion’s share of production handled by Metro, Southside and Zaytoven, this album plays like Future in his most purified form.

3. I Never Liked You

By this project drop, listeners were so accustomed to Future’s music delivery that his talents were slightly taken for granted. While I Never Liked You was the Atlanta rapper’s ninth studio album, if you were to count mixtapes, it might as well be his 30th. But there were no signs of creative fatigue in sight as the album delivered popular tracks including the lushly atmospheric "Wait for U," featuring Drake and Tems, and the pulsing “I Never Liked You,” featuring Kanye West — both produced by ATL Jacob.

2. Hndrxx

Future and Hndrxx were released in back-to-back weeks in 2017, with the latter being the more sublime and introspective product while the former stayed in his trap rap lane. Both albums went No. 1, and on Hndrxx, the Atlanta rapper proved he was equally adept at getting thoughtful and romantic with his musical output.

The stutter stop flow and occasional crooning was still there, but any harshness was smoothed over by lush melodies and effervescent production, particularly from Detail. The roster is succinct with Chris Brown, Rihanna, The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj as the only guests on the project.

1. DS2

DS2, also known as Dirty Sprite 2, was released after Future dropped a trio of critically acclaimed mixtapes (Monster, Beast Mode and 56 Nights). The LP’s intro track, “Thought It Was A Drought,” has a hook that saw Pluto bragging about fornicating in Gucci flip-flops, and it set the tone for the irreverent, codeine-infused musical milieu listeners were about to get served. It includes songs that long served as social media inspiration and dancefloor motivators like lead single “F**k Up Some Commas,” “Stick Talk” and “Where Ya At,” featuring Drake. This project was also a fan favorite. It went No. 1 and, eventually, triple platinum.
