Drake Boots Future From US Tour / Gears Up For Legal Battle

Published: Tuesday 15th Oct 2013 by David


It was supposed to serve as the strongest launching pad for his forthcoming album ‘Honest‘.

However, thanks to comments made by Hip Hop vocalist Future, he has been booted from Drake‘s forthcoming ‘Would You Like A Tour?‘, and now gears up to face the ‘Hold On’ performer in a $1.5 million legal battle.

An unfortunate story below…

After joining ‘Adorn’ singer Miguel in signing to support Drake on the tour, Future took to Billboard to share his thoughts on the very album the tour was launched to support, sharing:

‘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.”

Upon learning of the quote’s publication, Future’s management team reportedly made an attempt to discredit the interviewing journalist- Billboard associate Erika Ramirez– by claiming his words had been taken out of context.

Unfortunately, their efforts to have the quote pulled down effectively came to no avail, as it was spotted by Drake himself, who- in retaliation- ordered his agent to fire Future from the tour or risk being fired himself.

Some time later, Future was fired but was called back to renegotiate a potential return to the show last week.

Alas, after Drake‘s camp demanded he make financial concessions the ‘Body Party’ writer pulled out of the tour for good over the weekend and is now planning to sue the ‘Started From The Bottom’ MC for $1.5 million dollars.

A lawsuit, that will see Future claim that his firing from the show saw him suffer a ‘loss of earnings’.

$40,000 a night to be exact.

Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for more on this developing story.

    F*** Drake Crying Ass. Im Getting A Refund!!!

    • OVODasher October 15, 2013

      No offence son, but I doubt one empty seat will make a difference. People were coming to see Drake, Future and Miguel are his OPENING acts and can easily be replaced. Run along back to the trap where you uneducated ass belongs.

  6. Tanya (Queen bey fan) October 15, 2013

    Ciara its not to late to dance back up for King Bey on MCWT.

    • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

      She’d out shine her in That department, and quickly be asked to headline!

      “Im just being Honest”

      Try again

  7. RiriRoyale October 15, 2013

    What kind of idiot disses an album when that album is the ONLY reason you’d be touring in the first place. It’s not as though Future could sell out all those dates himself so his best bet would have been to keep his opinions to himself. Now you f***** up your album promo and literally have nothing to do until your album drops.

    Honestly, Future and Ciara just as dim as each other.

    • QUEEN MINAJ October 15, 2013

      I SEE NO LIES.

  8. OVODasher October 15, 2013

    Way to ruin an opportunity.

  9. QueenVentura October 15, 2013

    Now would be a good time for Ciara to dump Future. He’s served his purpose and is just making her look bad now.

  10. NaviRunThis October 15, 2013

    NOT Aubriana giving Futara her marching orders so he and Miguella can be alone. Yasss gworl, get that alone time withcho girl beau.

  11. ARTFLOP WILL FLOP October 15, 2013

    Is a shame i was going to buy a ticket because of future.

  12. Diamond Princess October 15, 2013

    Drake has been behaving like a b**** as of late… No let me rephrase that, Drake has always acted like a b**** now it’s just more apparent; throwing bottles then running like hell, obsessing over women (rihanna) that don’t want him or never knew him (aaliyah), fighting with dudes who truthfully say he’s soft (chris, kendrick). Dude’s music is good but his mentality needs help. Him and kanye should both seek counsel together.

  13. Tanya maraj October 15, 2013

    Never bite the hand that feeds you Mr Ciara

    • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

      He bit the hand AND will still be payed for it either way!!

      Who’s going to check him?

      And i’m sure he will stand by what he said, as it was not slander, just an honest answer to an appropriate question coming from a reporter for BillBoard!

      • QUEEN MINAJ October 15, 2013

        alright let say he wins the legal battle get his money.
        but he wont have the exposure that he would of gotten on tour.
        his album will flop.
        he will be dropped.

  14. opd2 October 15, 2013

    Future is a d-mn fool for that,dissing an album that made it possible for you to be on the tour in the first place,to make some money and get more exposure,you can do that even if it was someone else,you can do sh1t like that dissing your boss,anyone in my opinion would have boots is @ss too,respect is respect if anyone you spineless retarded slugs on her talking cr@p about he should have let him stay,is a set of punks people will punk you in your own house and you let it slid and don’t do sh1t,little punks.

  15. CIARASTAN October 15, 2013

    DRAKE IS SO EMOTIONAL if he was a real n****, he would have paid that n**** dust & continue to get money because we all know who the more popular artist is. I don’t Stan for one but I do Feel like drake is on some b**** s***.

    • K October 15, 2013

      No,a real N!gga would kick is @ss off the tour just the same,you pay people dusk who you are not involve with on a business tip,the dude is on is tour it,s drakes tour,and you are going to dis the person album who you are going to tour with,and you expect drake to pay him dusk and still work with him,that would have bin a punk move on drakes part,and mybe next time future would have said more sh!t in a interview because he got way with it the first time,then other would want to pull that sh1t on drake too,nice that Drake stop it right there and them,now peeps will no not to f-ck with him like that.

      • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

        OMG – Grammar, Correct Spelling and Sentence Structure was NOT your best asset in school as you have just put on display.

  16. MUSICHEAD October 15, 2013

    This is very simple: If I worked for Microsoft and said to the media that their products make a lot of money but I don’t really like them, Microsoft would fire me too.

    You can’t talk bad about the company or person who employs you and still expect a check. That’s not representing the brand well.

    Never bite the hand that feeds you!

    • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

      He knew what he was doing! and he now has grounds to sue.

      Either way he is still going to get paid. He was not slandering Ms.Drake but simply gave his ‘HONEST’ opinion on what the differences are between the 2 albums.

  17. smh October 15, 2013

    Future sounds horrible like his “woman”. Both suck. He’s lucky somebody asked him to tour with them.

    • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

      The reach to drag his female friend……

  18. TeamBreezy October 15, 2013

    Drake taking this s*** too far, be a n**** and just dust off that s***, u the headliner!

  19. Mother October 15, 2013

    Talk about biting the hand that feeds you! Future is dumb as f***.

  20. Tisha October 15, 2013

    Whatever folks think of Drake that was the dumbest of dumb moves by Future. I bet he went to the interview a little drunk or high and let his tongue slip. Makes sense Drake booted him and by suing Drake he’s just admitting he needs this money.

    Smh, can’t stand fools with no business sense in the game.

  21. JER October 15, 2013

    Between Future and Cerror, I don’t know who’s been asked to not perform more times.

    • FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

      Girl, The Reach!!!!!

  22. ABC October 15, 2013

    Future is such an idiot for making that statement.

  23. MISHKA October 15, 2013

    Welp, Drake doesn’t need nobody else, who cares about Future? Bye Felicia!

    Drake + Miguel that’s more than fine by me. Blueprints stick together and stay winning.

  24. FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

    Anyways, FUTURE knows exactly what he was doing, To put himself in the situation to sue that tired queen for her coins……. Draka Got GOT! and fell for it…..

    Future is smart, And his new album is VERY IMPRESSIVE, And you will hear it everywhere you go!

    Lets leave Ci out of this.

  25. FutureCIARA October 15, 2013

    This concert will be a FLOP without FUTURE!

    Miguel’s performance is cautious, We all remember what happened when he landed on that girls face.

    And Drake is tired and looks as if he has down syndrome. Nobody wants to hear her nursery rhymes. And that new album of hers is LATE!

    Those tickets are being refunded FAST!

  26. tits mcgee October 15, 2013

    Future is messy and Drake is a diva. #whatevaman

  27. chillout October 15, 2013

    Drake with his sensitive feelin one thing said not to his liking and boom all sh*t happen. Future being himself deal with it keepin it real. No reason for the the man to be dropped nor ask to take a pay cut just because Drake feelin hurt. Somebody give this man a doll of himself so he can go play with it DAMN.

    • Jeff October 15, 2013

      I see Future telling no lies for real. Drake acting like a real b****. Now Future will get that 1.5 mil without doing a thing. Drake should know they both have a contract.

  28. Jeff October 15, 2013

    I’m hearing that Kendricks Lamar went in hard on Drake on the BET cypher and Uncle Snoop loved it as well as others in the industry. I always said that Drake is a fake whom was buying up all his CD’s like he did for J. Cole in Best Buy. The stupid part about Drake buying all the CD’s he taped it what a dumb f***. He probably did this in mostly all the Best Buy so he can outsell Kanye. The only artists I believe is not buying their own music is Chris Brown & Kanye. lol
