Atlanta’s Future, who plays the Neptune Theatre Thursday, is one of the leading voices in rap, R&B and even pop music in 2014, with multiple radio hits (“Move That Dope,” “Honest”) and collaborations with everyone from Kanye West and Andre 3000 to Miley Cyrus.

But the 30-year-old’s path to the top has been an arduous one.

First thing on the phone, Atlanta hip-hop/pop star Future says he heard weed is legal in Washington state, and tells a story he’s told several other writers, about the time he and Snoop Dogg (and 15 other people) smoked two pounds.

If you imbibed like that, you might also forget you’d told the story a bunch of times.

Future opens for Drake on Wednesday at the Tacoma Dome, with the R&B singer Miguel.

Future is all about being spacey. In the video for “Real and True,” a ballad from his upcoming second album, “Honest,” he can even be seen on a spaceship with Miley Cyrus (a new collaborator aiding in his pop crossover) and singer Mr. Hudson. Future’s first album was called “Pluto.” He frequently chooses to treat his recorded voice with a severe application of Auto-Tune software, making himself sound like an android.
