Growing up around music, it was inevitable that Futuristic would follow the path of his elders. Father Joe Beck was constantly consumed with his drumming skills, leading bands and competing in national drumming competitions while still running his greatly respected local DJ service. Future's brothers Jason, Joseph, and Brandon are also musicians and participate in a wide variety of genres including Heavy Metal, Acoustic Guitar, Hip-Hop, Production, and Engineering. The youngest of this bunch of taleneted artists, Futuristic moved away from his family in Illinois and began to create a buzz of his own in Arizona opening up for acts such as Willy Northpole and Sean Kingston. His feature on James Wades highly anticipated mixtape "Popular Stranger" received over 60,000 downloads in two weeks. Accumulating fans accross the country, Futuristic unloads an array of lyrical genius on his first major album named his trademark phrase "I HAD TO DO IT"
