Cat fight alert! Not really, but there is beef nonetheless. According to Page Six, rapper Drake is being slapped with a heft lawsuit. By whom you ask? None other than rapper Future (who is also Ciara’s boyfriend). Long story short, Future is suing Drake for $1.5 million. Why? For being kicked off of Drake’s 39-city tour. Allegedly, Drake was booked to tour with Future and R&B singer Miguel. Things went awry during a Future listening session at Billboard Magazine. While doing the listening session, associate editor Erika Ramirez published a story with quotes from Future, which she also posted on her Twitter feed. Referring to Future, she wrote:

Not only is future’s #honest album interesting, so are his thoughts on Drake’s #NWTS album.

She also quoted Future as saying about Drake’s 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 reading the story, Future’s horrified managers argued with the mag that his quotes were off the record and taken out of context. Reportedly, the online story was edited, but the Billboard reported didn’t delete her tweets. When Drake caught word of Future’s comments, he allegedly wanted Future fired from the tour. A source says Drake:

told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him.

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. A rep for Billboard told Page Six:

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.

Eeek.

    you can’t go “off the record” unless you say “THIS IS OFF THE RECORD”. If you say something, a journalist has the right to use it in a story, unless ethically it’s wrong.

  4. I actually doubt here is the location just for this, nevertheless… I have a problem with our present copyright laws, and I believe the way in which the present system of administration utilizes the lobby is a reason behind the idea. Our rules do not similarly shield everyone, they will only secure often the passions of any wealthy couple of. Can there be definitely not some way to modify how everything is? Precisely what percent with the population might be beat up just before genuine modify may be forced to take place? Our own laws have already been contorted in addition to twisted to benefit some sort of wealthy fraction. Example: I’m some sort of land inspector. My loved ones did to carry out studies for folks for 4 decades. We certainly have constantly put money very competitively occasionally depreciating to acquire work wanting we will make all of our gains by having the particular information to ensure we would obtain the help foreseeable future reviews as well as having the capacity to complete these individuals quickly by simply upgrading what info all of us previously experienced with document. This similar system of lawmaking that is protecting typically the RIAA is usually letting the title sector yet others that were amassing reports of our research for you to send out those to persons agreeing to affidavits to get closings applying each of our work for their particular earnings and not including us all through being profitable for our very own perspiration labour along with do the job. What exactly affects me nearly all concerning this is, at some point, you will see a lawsuit with a review we all do many years before, that was employed for a after final against each of our will plus the courts will probably aspect next to us all for a work all of us did not also get money for. Coming from prepared most people within govt seeking help in getting and then get recurring web template responds or any reply at all. Romans acquired the idea considerably better 2150 years back. Good we stay in some sort of democracy, yet My partner and i dread it is not obviously any good republic. Many of us political election that will put several Republicans or maybe Democrats within govt, just to have our laws and regulations prepared in addition to reformed to benefit the rich group, by means of lobbyists financed by simply and which represents a prosperous couple of. This particular same government many of us selected as to get positions a low goal about the wishes from the the vast majority, inside the belief that it rich few are much more prudent and/or far more deserving than the the vast majority. I’m worried our own administration has become more of a Aristocracy.
