Atlanta rapper Future is doing his part. As the United States still battles coronavirus and many are left without jobs, the hip-hop heavyweight has stepped up and launched a new scholarship program for recent high school graduates.
Future x Scholarship
Future took to his Instagram Story this week to reveal the massive news. While there weren’t many details on his post, more can be found on his foundation’s site.
The deadline for the “I’m Still a Dreamer” scholarship application is July 27. Future and the FreeWishes Foundation will award up to $2,500 to those who’re approved.
“You don’t have to be in the perfect situation or come from the perfect background to reach for your dreams. Despite this Covid-19 pandemic, I encourage all dreamers to continue to dream big.” -Future
Wait, There’s More
Future also let followers know about the new scholarship through his Twitter page.
Before You Go
Future is out here becoming a living legend. After charting 12 – not including his “Life Is Good” single with Canadian rapper Drake that had already charted – songs on the Billboard 100 list from recent new High Off Life album, he’s seriously leveled up. Future now has the fourth most entries on the Hot 100 ever. He’s just surpassed the legendary Elvis Presley, sitting at 109.
As Future celebrates his seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 (dated May 30), as High Off Life opens with 153,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, he debuts 12 songs from the set on the Billboard Hot 100, bringing his total to 110 career Hot 100 entries. In the history of the Hot 100, which dates to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception, only three acts boast more entries: Drake (222), the Glee Cast (207) and Lil Wayne (163). Future becomes just the ninth act to tally at least 100 career Hot 100 entries, and, as he moves up to fourth place, he passes the totals of Nicki Minaj, Elvis Presley (whose career predated the Hot 100’s launch), Kanye West, Chris Brown and Jay-Z. .
