Future Addresses Whether He’s Dropping Albums Because Of Rocko Lawsuit
Last year, Rocko sued Future for $10 million, claiming Future breached their six album contract when he did a side deal with Epic.
Last week, a report in MediaTakeOut claimed that Future had settled the lawsuit, giving Rocko all the royalties from his next two albums and 50 percent of his tour revenue for the next 2 years.
Rocko immediately denied the settlement, and it was only reported in the painfully unreliable MTO so ….
But now we get word that Future is going to drop his second album in two weeks Friday, both surprises.
In a Twitter Q&A, Future was asked if the sudden burst of productivity was to pay off his lawsuit debt to Rocko.

“No way in the fuck am I doing it for him,” he said. “But at the same time, know what I’m saying, shit gon’ get took care of. We working, we richer than ever, you know what I’m saying? When niggas go broke they do dumb shit. I don’t know what’s going on, but at the end of the day, we making hits, we making history, they want to be part of history you got to do something to tag along. So that’s what it is. Tag along nigga.”
That sounds like he’s denying there was a settlement, and accusing Rocko of being broke.
