Future Kicked Off Drake Tour
According to Page Six, Future has been kicked off Drake’s Would You Like A Tour tour following a statement he made during a Billboard magazine interview. 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.”
According to Page Six, Drake 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 the mag.
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.
