Drake Removes Future From His Tour Behind Controversial Interview Comments; Future Retaliates
If you were looking forward to seeing Atlanta rap star Future on Drake‘s “Would You Like A Tour?”, you’re going to be disappointed. After giving an interview with Billboard Magazine earlier this month in which he had some not too kind things to say about Drake’s new album, Nothing Was The Same, Future has been booted from the remainder of the tour dates. While the two artists were in negotiations to have Future re-added to the tour, Page Six reports things broke for good when Drake’s people requested Future take a pay cut.
Future was quoted in Billboard 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. I want to make you want to fall in love.” Soon after these quotes became public, released on the twitter feed of Billboard associate editor Erika Ramirez, Future took to twitter to insist his quotes were taken out of context. “Respect to Billboard, disappointed on being misquoted..” Future tweeted, “always love for my fam Drizzy Drake.”
Future, who was set to make $40,000 per night on the tour, is reportedly preparing to take Drake to court for $1.5 million in lost wages this week. Although Drake and Future have fallen out, Miguel is still on board as an opening act.
