Future wouldn’t even have one if not for rapper/producer Rocko, who says he discovered Future, put him on the path to fame and fortune, and then got stabbed in the back.
Rocko, owner of A1 Recordings and a well-known rap artist himself, just sued Future, citing a 2011 contract he believes Future breached.He says the deal was for Future to make his first 6 albums with A1.
Rocko says Epic Records signed on to distribute the albums, but then things got tricky. In the suit, he says Future cut a side deal with Epic, which scored him huge multi-million dollar advances.
Rocko says he was left out in the cold because Future stiffed him to the tune of 25% — the commission he’s owed off those fat Epic advances. In addition, he says he’s owed 20% of Future’s earnings from touring, endorsements, etc.
Bottom line … Rocko says Future’s on the hook for more than $10 million.
