If it’s Tuesday, it must be time for another rap beef.
This time, Atlanta rhyme-spinner Future is in the spotlight.
The rapper was allegedly booted from his opening slot on Drake’s upcoming tour after commenting to Billboard magazine that, “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.”
Drake apparently didn’t take the criticism lightly and demanded that Future be fired from the tour.
The New York Post reported that Future negotiated to come back late last week, but exited for good over the weekend after Drake’s camp demanded that Future make financial concessions.
Future is planning to file a lawsuit against Drake this week for lost wages, which total about $1.5 million (that’s $40,000 per show on the 39-date tour, scheduled to stop at Philips Arena Nov. 7 – Miguel is now the sole opener).
The drama started after Future visited Billboard’s office on Oct. 4 to give editors an advance listen of his upcoming album, “Honest” and conversation turned to Drake’s new release, “Nothing Was the Same.”
