TMZ is reporting that Future has been sued by rapper Rocko over an alleged contract breach. Rocko is the owner of Future’s former label A1 Recordings, and he’s claiming that a 2011 contract specifying six albums was violated in a joint deal with Epic Records. According to Rocko, the Epic deal was only signed to distribute albums, but Future went ahead and inked a separate deal with Epic that cut A1 Recordings out of any profits.
