There seems to be no love lost between Future and Rocko following a recent ruling on their contract dispute. Back in 2011, Future reportedly signed a six-album deal with Rocko’s A1 Records. At the time, Rocko was signed to Def Jam, but Future was still an independent artist on the rise.

But after Future’s strong showing in 2012, he became one of rap’s top newcomers and eventually signed a deal with Epic Records. Rocko claimed that he never received compensation from the Epic deal and decided to sue Future for breach of contract in 2016.

After several months, a judge reportedly ruled in Rocko’s favor. In return, Rocko will receive royalties from Future’s next two albums and 50 percent of his tour revenue for two years.

Following Future’s Instagram post that promoted his upcoming album, HNDRXX, Rocko wrote a message that said, “Truth be told, I always believed in lil bro. That’s why I signed him. When I post his stuff on my page, it’s out of genuine support…I understand he feels a certain way. Hell I would too if I was being sued. If it’s ever a time he wants to sit down like a man, I’m with it. I will always support my boy, regardless.”

Future responded to Rocko’s post by saying, “You post it cause I’m the s— n—. On gang tho. You gonna die fake n—. You embraced me as a brother at my worse and try to play me. [I] ain’t talk to you in years n—. Ain’t no n— on earth gonna take s— with[out] consequences. Judge or no judge n—. You a con artist1”

Rock has yet to respond to Future’s latest post. Future will release his second album in a span of one week on Friday and will headline the “Nobady Safe” tour this spring.
