It looks like Future was a little too honest.
Drake was scheduled to launch his Would You Like A Tour? with Future & Miguel on Friday in Pittsburgh, but now Future won’t be going along for that ride. Here’s what went down according to Page Six:
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.
Drake — whose previous rap feud with Chris Brown ended in a violent bottle fight between their entourages in a club last year — was so angry, he immediately demanded Future be booted from the tour. “He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source told us.
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, or about $1.5 million.
We hope they’re able to work things out. We have tickets to the Nov. 25th show in L.A. and would love to still see Future.
