Rocko Addresses Reports That He Won a Major Lawsuit Against Future
It looks like Rocko was the victim of fake news. The Atlanta rapper was mentioned in a news report that he won a major lawsuit against Future. According to the rumors, Rocko’s settlement consists of almost taking every dime that Future is making on his tours, among other things. But it appears this is not the case.
To bring you up to speed, Rocko sued Future for $10 million for breach of contract. Rocko is citing their 2011 contract that he believes Future breached by cutting a backdoor deal intentionally to undermine the agreement.
Future and Rocko collaborated frequently; most notably on hits like “Chosen One,” “U.O.E.N.O.” and “Squares Out Your Circle.” But Rocko feels that Future broke the terms of their deal and went out of his way to secure a secondary deal with Epic that shut Rocko and A1 out completely.
On Saturday (Feb. 19), news broke that Rocko won his lawsuit and reportedly owns Future's soul - so to speak. According to the fake story (via Vlad TV), a judge ordered Future to cough up 50 percent of his tour revenue and all of his album royalties to Rocko. Now that sounds crazy!
Folks on Twitter had a field day with the story and tweeted their responses. Read a sampling below.
But Rocko went on Twitter and shot down the rumors completely. Read his tweet below.
Well there you have it. Don't believe everything that you read.
