Michael Phelps stepped out of the pool to introduce Future at the VMAs on Sunday evening. The Olympic superstar said there was “no more inspiring rapper” than the EVOL rapper emcee, adding that he used his music to pump him up before a competition. “I may have a lot of gold, but Future has all the platinum,” Phelps quipped before welcoming his personal hero to the stage. To prove it, Future performed his smash “Fuck Up Some Commas” from 2015’s DS2.
