Since news of the legal dispute between Rocko and Future began rumors were swarming as to what the settlement would be. Would they go to court? Would their legal dispute end like a dirty divorce? Secretly I think people were hoping for the worst, but it seems to have faired well for both business man. You can bet that the memes were hot and ready and soon as reports revealed that the the two settled in a seven figure deal. But what started messy has ended pretty clean. It is also a smart decision, especially for Future who probably saved thousands in court fees by settling. Also from early reports, Rocko will be getting less than the $10 million he originally proposed. So for Future it seems like a win-win situation. What makes this kind of petty is that the money Future is about to pay out, he’ll make back when the next song drops. When will Rocko ever see this kind of money from a music deal again. Since Future, there hasn’t been a major artist to drop from A1 Records.
Both have been rather hush hush since the news broke, but I’m sure someone will break the silence soon. Some of Future’s remarks were harsh to say the least early on so we’ll see….
As far as loyalty is concerned though, because that has come into question on both sides, I don’t think either should be questioned. The difference is that this is about business and nothing personal. Rocko felt legally entitled to funds he hadn’t received for a business deal the the two had. Regardless of their friendship, business is business. One of the main reasons why people are coming at Rocko though is because his motive seems shady. Greed is actually the word people are using to describe his motive.
If Future’s deal with Epic was unsuccessful and didn’t come with a HUGE advance and too many hits and credits to count, would Rocko still be pursuing this money? Future’s contribution to A1 Records will go down in Hip Hop history and at this point I think it’s pointless to argue over who made who. But it’s obvious who’s success has surpassed the others. Hopefully, Rocko is content with the settlement because Future’s grind hasn’t slowed down. In fact, since signing with Epic in 2011 Future has dropped six albums, three of which were number on Billboard 100. As far as what’s next for Rocko… we’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, we can say goodbye to another Rocko featuring Future track
Would you believe that tickets to Future’s Purple Reign tour cost as much as Beyoncé tickets? Yeah. Tickets to Future’s concert in Atlanta peaked at $1200 and to a sold out crowd but fans were let down with hopes for a second show as the 22 city tour moved right on schedule to the next stop. Now in Texas, the tour is entering its West Coast loop before closing out in South Carolina. Both Future, and the opener, Ty Dolla $ign, have released two major projects right before this tour, Purple Reign and Evol for Future, and Airplane Mode and Free TC for Ty Dolla. This gives the artists even more material to perform with and fans more music to vibe to. The two combined are like the King and Prince of the turn-up so imagine how crazy the crowd goes when Ty and Future Hendrix performed “Blasé”. The screams of fans are probably still echoing from the walls but if you missed the show in your city, there’s no telling how long you’ll have to wait until the next tour.
Now, his performance in NYC was definitely something to talk about! He set the RECORD straight on who really the Plug, while he drips in Designer! Please watch the LIVE ACTION below

Take a seat, and listen as BMG Sunny, Black Migo Frank, Scooter, and more talk about the origination of BMG. The video was shot some time ago, just now being released. People always seem to get confused, but Black Migo and Freebandz is all family. I hope you enjoy the video and listen to the swift talking Mexico Rann + Boss Man Casino.
