If you’re not familiar, initial reports are claiming that Future’s overload of music releases are in an attempt to pay back Rocko, who sued Future over unpaid debts (Future is signed to Rocko’s record label). Here’s what Hip-Hop Overload said:

Someone in Atlanta is smiling after details we got in the Rocko & Future lawsuit. Word we got was Future will give Rocko all royalties from his next two albums, he will also give Rocko 50% of touring revenues for next two years also. Future signed a 360 agreement with LA Reid which allows Epic to recoup the advance they foreited to help Future pay back Rocko.

Future will now give a percentage of any deals made outside of music to Epic until his back advancements are paid or for the next five years, whichever comes first. LA/Epic will also be collecting on the front end on all of Future’s music ventures.

Since then, it’s only reignited an apparent beef between the former friends, beginning with Future’s response to a recent Q&A…

…to the exchanges that you’ll see below. Regardless, Future’s second album in two weeks — HNDRXX — is still dropping at midnight. You can get that and the self-titled release here.
