Wow it looks like Future’s thoughts about Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same” album pissed Drake all the way off! Word is Drake allegedly kicked Future off his tour and now Future is suing!
Future’s honesty might have backfired on him following some comments he made in a recent interview with Billboard magazine. He was set to open Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same Tour” but when Drake heard about the quote Drake axed him from the line up.
According to PageSix:
Future went to Billboard magazine’s office on Oct. 4 to give editors a listen to his latest album, “Honest.” Associate editor Erika Ramirez published a story with quotes from Future, which she also posted on her Twitter feed.
“Not only is future’s #honest album interesting, so are his thoughts on Drake’s #NWTS album,” Ramirez wrote. She then went on to quote Future: “ ‘Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do’ — Future.”
After reading the story, Future’s horrified managers argued with the mag that his quotes were off the record and taken out of context. We’re told the online story was edited, but Ramirez didn’t delete her tweets.
Future was fired, but then negotiations started to bring him back late last week. But over the weekend, Future pulled out for good after Drake’s camp demanded he make financial concessions. Future, who was set to earn about $40,000 per gig, is set to file a lawsuit this week against Drake for lost wages, for about $1.5 million.
Neither Future or Drake’s reps responded to the allegations but a rep for Billboard said: “We regret that miscommunication surrounding Future’s recent visit, one that seemed clear to us was on the record, may have caused any trouble for the artist.”
Messy messy. If this is true I def think Drake overreacted just a bit considering Future did apologize for the misunderstanding…but we’ll see how this one turns out.
