Drake Kick’s Future Off His Tour After Shady Comments To Billboard
Drake kicked Future off his tour after learning the ‘Love Song’ rapper dissed him in a Billboard article. Now, Future is suing him for lost wages.
The New York Post’sPage Six recently revealed, Drake and Future are facing off in a $1.5 million beef. It’s unfortunate because the two rappers were set to hit the road on a 39-city schedule with R&B singer Miguel. The ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ trek was suppose to kick-off in Philly this Friday.
Evidently while promoting his new album ‘Honest’, Future did an interview/album feature with Billboard Magazine Oct. 4th and told associate editor Erika Ramirez, Drake’s music wasn’t ‘all that.’ To make matters worse, Ramirez published the story with quotes from Future, which she also posted on her Twitter feed. Here’s what a look at what was posted:
Ramirez wrote “Not only is future’s #honest album interesting, so are his thoughts on Drake’s #NWTS album.”
Then quoted Future saying: ” ‘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.” Allegedly, Future’s managers were pissed that Ramirez posted the rappers quotes. Then supposedly argued with Billboard that his quotes were off the record and taken out of context.
According to a source with Page Six, Drake got wind of Future throwing shade and let’s just say….he was feeling some type of way about paying to go on tour. Reportedly, Drizzy got with his touring agent and said “either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him” and subsequently took him off the tour.
Word has it, Future’s reps tried to salvage their artists chances of doing the tour by saying Future was misquoted. After some negotiations Drake agreed to allow Future back on to the tour provided he take less money. Allegedly Future wasn’t feeling the new changes to the contract, because he was reportedly gonna make upwards $40 grand per show. So, he not only denied the offer, but is now supposed to be suing Drake for $1.5 million in lost wages.
