Drake has reportedly fired fellow rapper Future from his upcoming Would You Like a Tour? trek.
Sources tell Rolling Stone that the Canadian was far from happy with comments Future made to Billboard.com about his new album Nothing Was the Same and decided he didn't want to share the stage with him.
Future made his comments to Billboard associate editor Erika Ramirez earlier this month (Oct13), stating, "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."
He added, "I've been on the songs of all these rappers that put out an album, and my music is still better."
Future's manager reportedly argued that his client's remarks were supposed to be off the record and were taken out of context.
A spokesman for Billboard says, "We regret that miscommunication surrounding Future's recent visit, one that seemed clear to us was on the record, may have caused any trouble for the artist."
Drake's new tour was delayed last month (Sep13). It will kick off in Pennsylvania on Friday (18Oct13).
