Merely days before “Would You Like A Tour?” kicks off in Pittsburgh, the show might not go on with Future. Page Six reports that headliner Drake wants the “Honest” rapper off the bill.
The feud reportedly stemmed from Future’s recent sit-down with Billboard, where he allegedly threw shots at Drizzy while previewing his forthcoming effort Honest.
“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,” associate editor Erika Ramirez tweeted from her interview.
Future and his reps were quick to call it a “missquote” that was taken out of context and it was deleted from the story.
“He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source tells Page Six about Drake, who was reportedly on bad terms with Future back in 2012 after failing to show up at the shoot for the auto-tuned MC’s “Tony Montana” video.
Future was reportedly fired then brought back only to pull out of the tour. Ciara’s significant other, who was set to earn about $40,000 per gig, is reportedly filing a lawsuit against Drake for lost wages, or about $1.5 million.
The tour has been experiencing technical difficulties from jump after it rescheduled 13 dates due to “an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show,” according to a press release.
When asked why his upcoming album’s release date was pushed back to later this year or top of 2014, Future replied, “I’ve been on the songs of all these rappers that put out an album, and my music is still better.”
VIBE has reached out to the artists’ reps for comment.
