EXCLUSIVE: Future – Producer Accuses Rapper of Screwing Him Out of $15 Milllion
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Future screwed the producer who discovered him out of $15 million dollars … so claims the man in newly filed court docs and he accuses the rapper of refusing to hand over his financial records for his concerts.
Last year, producer Rocko, owner of A1 Recordings, filed a $10 million dollar suit against the rapper. He claimed he discovered Future and helped launch his career. He explained Future signed a deal with his company in 2011 for 6 albums. The deal stated Rocko would be paid 25% commissions off record deal advances and 20% off earnings from endorsements, touring, etc.
During record label negotiations, he claims Future screwed him over by cutting a multi-million side deal with Epic and screwing him out of his commissions.
Future fired back saying he never had an exclusive deal with Rocko and denied he did anything shady with his Epic deal. He counter-sued demanding unpaid recording costs and unpaid advances. Then on February 10th, Rocko headed back to court demanding the judge award him summary judgement against Future.
He explains since filing the lawsuit and gathering information in the case … he now believes the rapper owes him not $10 million but in excess of $15 million in unpaid commissions.
Rocko accuses Future of improperly attempting to prevent him from determining his actual income by refusing to provide adequate responses to his discovery requests in the lawsuit … and by trying to block a company that books his concerts from having to turn over financial records to him.
The producer is demanding the judge award him summary judgement in his favor.
