Future is playing a show at New York City megaclub Pacha for New Year’s, and TMZ sourced a bit of his rider. Not only is he pulling $200,000 for his performance, he’s also nabbing the real 2015 gold: “two large bags of white cheddar popcorn.”
After reports that everyone’s fave junior-high recreational drug Robitussin possibly nodded to Future’s Dirty Sprite 2 art in a recent ad—an awkward corporate attempt at being down with pop culture that, if true, is irresponsible at best—it’s nice to know Future also indulges in some slightly healthier vices. Also on his rider: “fresh white powdered doughnuts” and “scented candles,” though unlike many of his peers the brand is not specified. (His ex Ciara, among others, prefers those by French perfumier Diptyque.)
This appears to be similar, though, to a Future rider shared by a Twitter user in August which included the above, as well as Lifesaver gummies (hella good), gummy worms (also the best), Moet Rose (hi) and, specifically, a candle from New Yorker perfumer Le Labo in PREFERRED SCENT “Santal 33,” which is described on Le Labo’s website as follows:
Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him... From this memory is born SANTAL 33: a perfume that introduces our use of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood, cedarwood) some spicy, leathery, musky notes, and gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort.
Future may be a loping, rugged cowboy in his own eyes, but in ours he’ll always be the guy with the best snacks at the slumber party.
Also in TMZ’s tiny rider bounty: Fetty Wap would like three packs of cigars (which he will most obviously not empty and refill), Rich Homie Quan prefers his water at room temperature, Dej Loaf wants a Benz Sprinter van and tons of booze. Tour riders are part of the package and always serve as a functional wish list—I know a guy who put eight-packs of AA batteries on his rider for a year, keeping him in remote-control juice for at least two thereafter—so what’s on your dream NYE tour rider? Jezebel’s is basically the same as Future’s, but more gummies.
