Future Pays Rocko Seven Figures to Settle Lawsuit

Future Pays Rocko Seven Figures to Settle Lawsuit


(FreshAsFrankie) It looks like the legal battle between Future and Rocko that’s been going on for well over a year may have at long last reached a resolution.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, legal teams for both sides have requested a dismissal of the case which involved a breach of contract lawsuit from Rocko and countersuit from Future.

As some may recall, Rocko sued Future early last summer over a claim that he failed to hold up his end of a business deal. Future signed a deal with Rocko’s A1 Recordings in 2011, and he allegedly agreed to put out six albums with the label. According to Rocko, Epic Records signed on to distribute the albums but Future allegedly cut a side deal that allowed the rapper to see multi-million dollar advances for the project. In the suit, Rocko was originally seeking $10 million.

Future fired back with a suit of his own, claiming that the advances he received from Epic were not contractually conflicting. The suit also claimed Rocko didn’t honor the deal because he never covered any recording costs or paid Future an arranged $10,000 advances per album.

Now that the case has been dismissed, it appears Rocko came out on top after his lawyers told TMZ he’s happy with the “very successful result.”

Sources tell the site Rocko’s payout was in the seven-figure range.
