Future does not play with social networks too often. The rapper saves some pictures on his Instagram page and shows up to post on his story. His posts often involve upcoming or recent performances, tuning checks, and music illustrations. On Twitter, Future could drop a line a day for a few days, then disappear from the platform for weeks. But on Wednesday (September 21), Future appeared on Twitter with what looks like a shadow to anyone talking about the literal business of him.
“People who are not successful have no idea how success works,” Future tweeted.
