Drake may seem like a nice guy, but don’t get on his bad side. You could end up with a bottle to the head or, in this case, a squandered chance at major exposure. The Canadian MC has reportedly fired Future from his tour after Future was quoted making critical comments about Drake’s album Nothing Was The Same. In a recent Billboard interview, Future was quoted as 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.” The statement was also tweeted out by the reporter, and Future’s handlers immediately descended on Billboard, saying it was off the record and taken out of context.
The relevant section was removed from the story, but the damage was already done. According to Page Six, Drizzy immediately kicked Future off the tour, but he must have cooled off and reconsidered, because negotiations to get Future back on board were soon underway. However! Drake’s camp apparently wanted Future to make some financial concessions, which Future wasn’t too pleased about, so he dropped out of the talks. Now off the tour, he’s considering suing Drake for lost wages totaling $1.5 million.
That means, as of now, Miguel is the sole supporting act on the tour. The crooner has wisely stayed quiet throughout the feud. So when will we hear Kendrick Lamar and Future collab on a Drake diss track?
