Future has been unstoppable in 2017, as he made history with back-to-back No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 in consecutive weeks with Future and HNDRXX in February. Now, “Mask Off” has become the highest-charting single of his career, sitting at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 after peaking at No. 5 in May.
He brought that string of success to the BET Awards stage, ripping through “Mask Off” with the help of surprise guest Kendrick Lamar, whose remix of the track in May caught plenty of attention.
Starting off solo and with a mask over his face, Future quickly lost the mask and tore into the track, before Kendrick emerged halfway through, rocking black Nikes and an all-black outfit to deliver his lyrical gymnastics with the ATLien by his side.
Future is nominated for best male artist at the 2017 edition of the awards show tonight, where he’s up against Drake, Lamar, Big Sean, J. Cole and Chance the Rapper, who will receive a special humanitarian award.
