Hip-hop heavyweight Future gifted his son, Future Zahir Wilburn, one swanky accessory for his 5th birthday. 

The Atlanta-bred rapper, who headlined the Maxim Big Game Experience on the eve of Super Bowl LIII, posted video of the little guy unboxing a glistening gold Rolex watch at his superhero-themed birthday bash. 

As Bro Bible notes, the kid hilariously responded by simply muttering the word, “Thanks.”  

While Twitter users were busy criticizing The Wizrd hitmaker for giving the youngster such an extravagant present, he went ahead and ‘grammed a swaggy pic of “Baby Future” donning his blingy new bauble.


“Man he ain’t want no damn Rolex, get him some HotWheels,” one commenter wrote. Another accused Future of trying to buy his son’s “love, respect and honor.” Lighten up, Francis.  



But some Twitteratti actually defended Future. One person aptly pointed to the praise DJ Khaled received when he gave his 1-year-old son a diamond-encrusted timepiece valued at $100,000

All we know is that when your nickname is Nayvadius Cash and you’ve got $30 million in the bank, a gold Rolex is a drop in the bucket.
