Future has always been about his money, and he’s now reportedly taken this a step further by changing his last name to Cash.
The Atlanta rap star (born Naydavius Wilburn) apparently endorsed a post announcing the news on his Instagram story. “FUTURE LEGALLY CHANGED HIS LAST NAME FROM WILBURN TO ‘CASH'” the post read.
Future then issued a response by claiming he had secured the bag. “Bag secured. Da Biggest,” he wrote in his own IG Story, reposting the original post.
Future’s last name being “Cash” has been rumored for a while, but this is the first time he’s addressed the speculation.
