Future rejoins Drake's 'Would You Like a Tour?' tour after reports he was sacked
The Canadian rapper was allegedly displeased with comments his touring buddy made about him in an interview
Drake reportedly sacked his support act over remarks the latter made in an interview with Billboard, in which he talked about Drake's latest album 'Nothing Was The Same'.
"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," Future was quoted as saying. Future's management later complained that the quotes were meant to be off record, and were taken out of context. They were later removed from the online version of the article.
According to later reports, Drake was so angered by the comments that he sacked Future from the tour. He then reportedly reconsidered and invited Future to return for less money. Future declined and allegedly threatened to sue Drake for more than $1.5 million (£900,000) over lost wages from the 39-date tour.
In a statement issued to Rolling Stone, all seems to have been resolved, with Future saying: "I am set to continue as planned with Drake and Miguel on the 'Would You Like a Tour?' tour, slated to begin on October 18th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…I'm looking forward to hitting the road this fall. Love4Life Honest."
