Future Vs Rocko – Beef, Lawuit, Royalties

The Future vs Rocko beef is coming to an end.  In 2011, Future signed with A1 Recordings, Rocko’s record label.  Future agreed to release 6 albums on A1 Recordings but failed to do so.  He decided to breach his contract with Rocko after Epic Records was named the main distributor.  Future and Rocko have been friends for years but money has ruined their relationship.

Last year, Future called Rocko out for being a snitch.  Rocko claimed that Future cheated him out of millions.  Future settled the lawsuit by giving up all royalties for his next two albums.  Rocko will also receive half Future’s touring revenue for the next two years.  This explains why Chance the Rapper is trying to remain an independent artist.

The rapper, whose real name is Rodney Ramone Hill, Jr., was born on December 28, 1979 and is currently 37-years-old.  He has two kids with singer, Monica.  Rocko is a happy man right now because Future is in high-demand.  Future’s Summer Sixteen tour with Drake was the highest grossing hip hop tour of all-time.
