Future is fighting fire with fire in his ongoing legal battle with former friend and colleague Rocko. In June, Rocko sued Future for $10 million, alleging that Future breached contract when he inked a "side deal" with Epic that cost Rocko's A1 Records its cut of Future's profits. According to TMZ, Future has countersued Rocko in which he argues that his deal with Epic is legitimate and binding, and that A1 still owes him recording costs and $10,000 in advances per album.

Future and Rocko came up together several years ago. Future initially signed to A1, but after he jumped ship for Epic, Rocko began sharing old interview clips in which Future admits that Rocko helped him network and secure meetings with Epic chairman L.A. Reid.
