Earlier this month, Future told Billboard that he wasn't impressed with Drake's newest album Nothing Was the Same. “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you,” he was quoted as saying. “They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do. I want to make you want to fall in love."
Future is opening for Drake's tour. Or, he was opening for Drake's tour—a massive, 39-city tour that would have netted him $1.5 million in guaranteed money—before Drake read a sub-tweet about Future's quote. Now, Drake has replaced the rapper with frequent collaborator Jhene Aiko, even though Future attempted to backtrack on Twitter.
Respect to Billboard, disappointed on being misquoted..always love for my fam Drizzy Drake— FUTURE/FREEBANDZ (@1future) October 4, 2013
Ah, the old "I WAS MISQUOTED" trick.
It's fun to rip on Drake for his sensitivity, but he's pretty much right here. Future wouldn't be banking $40,000 a show without him, and why put money in his pocket? It's completely within his right to fire Future. "He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source told the New York Post. Now they're embroiled in a lawsuit.
Maybe Drake shouldn't have trusted a new friend, AMMIRITE?
