After amassing a series of mixtapes between 2010 and 2011, Future signed a major-label deal with Epic Records and fellow American rapper Rocko's A1 Recordings, which helped launch Future's own label imprint, Freebandz. Future subsequently began working on his debut album Pluto, and in April 2012 released the album to positive reviews. The album spawned five singles, all of which charted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. He unexpectedly released his third album, DS2, in July 2015, which earned him his first number one placement on the Billboard 200. Future premiered his fourth album EVOL, in February 2016, on DJ Khaled's We The Best Radio's debut on Beats 1.
