Future Gets Kicked Off of Drake’s Tour, Files $1.5 Million Lawsuit
This after Future made some unflattering remarks about Drizzy’s album ‘Nothing Was the Same’ in a Billboard article. In the interview, the Atlanta rapper-producer was touting his delayed album, ‘Honest,’ and was explaining why his project was better than some of the rap albums out now.
“Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you,” he reportedly said. “They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do. I want to make you want to fall in love.”
Future claims that he was misquoted in the article, but that didn’t stop Drake from booting him off his tour.
According to the New York Post, the ‘S—‘ rapper, was set to earn about $40,000 per show, but Drake’s team wanted him to take a pay cut. When he refused, he got axed.
Now Future is set to file a lawsuit this week against Drake for lost wages totaling up to $1.5 million.
Attorneys for both Future and Drake had no comment on the matter.
And with Drake’s tour kicking off in Pittsburgh, Pa., this Friday (Oct. 18), this legal issue might not get resolved.
And somebody needs to tell Miguel, who is also on the jaunt, what’s going on because he seems to think everything is hunky-dory.
He posted a photo on Instagram last night and wrote, “last nights rehearsal wrap photo. CANT WAIT TO ROCK! Drake’s #wouldyoulikeatour w Me and Future starts this Thursday in Pittsburg. All trouble. Peep the distressed #artgang hoodie too… AVAILABLE ON TOUR #turnup #artdealerchic.”
Turn up, indeed.
