The short story is this… Future dissed Drake, Drake dropped Future from tour, Future sues Drake for $1.5 million dollars.
While both of the popular ‘rappers’ are known for ‘singing’ in many of their hit songs, Future made a statement in which he reportedly insulted Drake’s music.
According to Page Six, the two are now set to face off over a $1.5 million lawsuit after Drake demanded that Future be kicked off of his tour over a few disrespectful quotes from a Billboard article.
The battle started Oct. 4th when Future visited Billborad to play his new album, Honest. Billboard’s Erika Ramirez, wrote a story on Future’s visit, including everything he said in their interview and apparently some serious disses that were meant to stay off the record.
Future was quoted on Erika’s Twitter, saying:
While the tweets are still posted to Erika’s account, the quotes were deleted from the actual Billboard story.
Here’s where it gets interesting. Drake’s tour starts Oct. 18 in Pittsburgh, Penn. and Miguel and Future were scheduled to appear as supporting acts on the roster for 39 scheduled concert dates.
After hearing about the article, Drake was reportedly all up in his feelings and demanded that Future get the boot from his tour, or else!
“[Drake] told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source told the publication.
The deed was done and Future is now reportedly going to file a $1.5 million dollar lawsuit for lost wages since he was kicked off of the tour.
[Sidebar: Ticketmaster has also pulled Future’s name from the lineup for Drake’s ”Would You Like a Tour?” tour.]
