Drake — you don’t want to be in another feud, especially with Future, your friend that you invited to tour with you. Admit it — Future wasn’t directly saying anything rude about you. He was just expressing his opinion about both of your albums. Here’s why you should forgive Future, since he apologized to you!
Drake, you and Future go way back. You’ve done collaborations together before, and you even invited him to tour with you. Don’t let a few quotes about his taste in music ruin a friendship and create a huge, bitter feud! When Future gave Billboard off the record quotes, an error in translation was bound to be made — that Future even admitted to! Plus, if Future files a lawsuit over lost wages due to being cut from the tour, the drama between you two could go on for years!
Drake — You Should Forgive Future For His Quotes In ‘Billboard’
Drake, when Future dissed you to Billboard, I agree — it wasn’t cool of him to do. With your 39-stadium, stressful “Would You Like a Tour?” tour coming up, it was probably the last thing you wanted to hear. When the tweets surfaced about Future’s opinion of your album in his Billboard interview, it must have taken you off guard.
Erika Ramirez, an editor for Billboard, tweeted on Oct. 4:
“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

It does sound like a diss to you — but Future tweeted an immediate apology in response to the quotes!
Respect to Billboard, disappointed on being misquoted..always love for my fam Drizzy Drake
— FUTURE/FREEBANDZ (@1future) October 4, 2013
It was nice that Future took the initiative to clear up that his quotes were misinterpreted. He even called you his family, along with your nickname, Drizzy! It might seem like Future was out of line by saying what he did about your album, Nothing Was The Same, in the first place — especially since you asked him to tour with you.
However, Future could have been trying to stir up new interest in both of your albums, or create friendly competition to hype up the tour! He was originally being interviewed about his album, Honest, so he had to persuade the industry why his music is better than the rest. Future does respect you, Drake, or else he wouldn’t have agreed to be the supporting act for your tour!
He attempted peace, but principal got the better of you, since you reportedly fired him from your tour. Now, things are getting ugly with a potential $1.5 million lawsuit that Future will allegedly file soon for lost tour wages, Page Six reported. Drake, don’t you want to try and salvage your relationship as artists — and friends?
Drake — You Don’t Want A Lawsuit With Future
You’ve come so far since ending your longtime feud with Chris Brown that this new feud seems like a setback for you! If Future files for a $1.5 million lawsuit, the legal battle could drag on for years and permanently damage your relationship with Future — and others — in unforeseeable ways.
Erika also tweeted something else that Future said during his interview:

This shouldn’t be taken personally, because he was talking about everyone he’s worked with! And this quote was also taken out of context, according to Future’s apologetic tweet to you.
You and Future have collaborated together on Lil Wayne‘s “Love Me” and DJ Drama‘s “We In This B**ch 1.5.” You were also featured on Future’s track, “Tony Montana.” Clearly, you both know the same people and are both respected artists that have huge fan bases. They don’t want to be let down with this rift, especially those who wanted to see you both on tour!
You should talk to Future and try to patch things up — if there’s still time!
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should Drake forgive future?
