Future is allegedly planning to sue Drake for a hefty $1.5 million following a feud that saw the Canadian rapper kick the auto-crooner off a 39-city US tour.

Drake, Future and Miguel were booked for the forthcoming Would You Like A Tour? tour, starting this Friday (October 18th) in Pittsburgh, but following comments given by Future to Billboard magazine in which he expressed a personal opinion on Drake's 'Nothing Was The Same' (spoiler: it wasn't a particularly flattering opinion), he has been given the boot.

On October 4th, Future was in the Billboard office playing an advance version of his new album 'Honest' when he remarked "Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do. I want to make you want to fall in love." The comment was both included in an interview and tweeted by Billboard associate editor Erika Ramirez, and evidently word ended back up in Drake's camp; according to a source speaking to Page Six, Drake responded by demanding that Future go.

Future was said to be set to earn around $40,000 per gig, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about it, and will allegedly file a lawsuit later this week against Drake for the lost wages.

Beneath the surface of all this beef, another bit of news crept out under the radar – Future's forthcoming second album 'Honest' has been delayed until 2014, according to Billboard.
