Drake kicks off his North American tour this week but days before his first show, he is trying to fire one of his opening acts. The 26-year-old rapper is reportedly feuding with Future, who is scheduled to open the concerts with R&B singer Miguel.

Page Six reports that Drake wants Future pulled from the lineup, after he was quoted in an interview offering his two cents on Drake's latest album, "Nothing Was the Same."

Future was interviewed by Billboard about Drake's work, as well as his own album, "Honest."

"Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn't grab you," Future reportedly told the publication. "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 day the article ran, Future took to Twitter to comment on the interview, saying he was misquoted.

While the original quote no longer appears in the Billboard interview, it was enough to anger the "Started from the Bottom" rapper. An unnamed source told Page Six, "He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him."

According to the publication, Future is now officially out of the tour and is planning to file suit against Drake for $1.5 million in lost wages. There has been no official word from Drake or Future on the rumors.
