There’s an old saying – “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you”. It seems that Future has just found out firsthand what means. The MMG rapper (who was due to be featured on Drake’s nationwide “Would You Like A Tour” has just been dropped for being a little too loose with the lips. During an interview with Billboard, Future forgot himself and has this to say about Drizzy’s Nothing Was The Same album:
“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.”
After hearing Future’s unwarranted feedback on his album, word is that Drake demanded he be fired immediately from the tour… which he was. Promptly. Future’s team tried to swiftly do damage control by claiming that Future was misquoted and that his remarks were supposed to be off the record.
Respect to Billboard, disappointed on being misquoted..always love for my fam Drizzy Drake

Billboard’s official statement on the matter casts doubt over his claims as they had this to say: “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.”
It appears that Future is now suing the Drizzy to the healthy tune of $1.5 million for the $40,000 he would have reportedly made for each show. I had no idea Future was getting money like that. Let’s hope the contract hasn’t been signed as yet, otherwise Drake just might have to pay up. This cannot be good for their friendship. The tour kicks off this Friday in Pittsburgh. Miguel is still on the tour as initially planned. Rumors have been swirling around that Jhene Aiko is Future’s replacement. She denies these rumors.
stop with this false information , please
