Future stays winning. After dropping his successful album, EVOL, the Atlanta rhymer is gearing up to perform on Saturday Night Live next month.
The “Where Ya At” rapper will be the musical guest on the March 5 episode of the venerable sketch comedy show along with actor Jonah Hill who will be that week’s host. This will be the first time F. Hendrix will perform on SNL.
In other good news, Future notched his third No. 1 album with EVOL. The collection debut atop the Billboard 200 chart with 130,000 units sold. Of that total, 100,000 was from pure album sales.
EVOL’s arrival at No. 1 comes just six months after Future premiered at the top spot with his solo effort, DS2. And let’s not forget he debuted at No. 1 with What a Time to Be Alive, his collaborative project with Drake.
Future is having a fantastic year so far. Aside from a defamation lawsuit from his ex-fiancee Ciara, the “Wicked” rapper is winning musically.
The Freebandz leader is currently on his Purple Reign Tour and is set to perform at the 2016 Roots Picnic in Philadelphia in June.
