Future apparently won’t sit down to work out his differences with Rocko, but he’s all here for the IG debate. The Atlanta rapper commented under Rocko’s Instagram post explaining their ongoing lawsuit to call out the A1 exec.
According to The Shade Room, Future called Rocko a “con artist” and says that the man he once considered a brother will get what’s coming to him, and we don’t think he means money.
Future is preparing to drop HNDRXX Friday (February 24), his second album in two weeks.

Future poked fun at Rocko during a Twitter Q&A on Tuesday amid their ongoing legal battle. Over the weekend, rumors circulated that the two had settled their lawsuit and Future was going to give Rocko all of the royalties from his next two albums, which would presumably be FUTURE and the upcoming HNDRXX. Those reports proved false and the two Atlanta rappers are still battling it out in court.
Rocko took to Instagram Wednesday (February 22) to clear the air about the lawsuit, which he first filed in June seeking $10 million, claiming Future breached the contract he signed in 2011 with A1 Recordings. Rocko says that he and Future could have talked things out, but the Dirty Sprite 2 rapper said to “let the lawyers handle it.” He says he only wants his fair share and still has nothing but respect for Future, even encouraging his fans to pre-order HNDRXX.

Future countersued Rocko a few months after the original lawsuit was filed, saying that the exec was the one who owes him money for recording costs and advances.
