Despite dealing with drama back home, Future is keeping his professional life booming, and appears on the cover of GQ this month for their annual style issue.
“Wide-brimmed hats are to the slurring, swerving Atlanta rapper born Nayvadius Wilburn what white suits are to Tom Wolfe: an instantly recognizable daily uniform,” the mag writes. “Look closely at these three and you’ll notice they’re all the same basic style. They’ve got the teardrop crown of a traditional fedora, and the brims have an Outback flair.”
Says Marc Williamson, proprietor of FlameKeepers Hat Club in Harlem, to GQ:
“They were definitely considered an old guy’s hat until Future started wearing them. Now we get plenty of calls from guys wanting the ‘Future hat.’ It’s a look that’s enhanced by just a leather jacket or a T-shirt. And that’s how Future gets down.”
