Atlanta rapper Future’s ready for a courtroom showdown. The flourishing hip-hop artist has reportedly countersued longtime mentor Rocko for unpaid dues.

Future believes Rocko owes him money for recording costs and album advances.

Future filed a response to Rocko’s lawsuit, and says the A1 Recordings honcho was full of it when he claimed Future cut a side deal with Epic Records, cheating A1 out of millions. As for the agreement Rocko claims Future had with him, Future says the deal never kept him in Rocko’s clutches, and his advances from Epic were fully on the up and up. (TMZ)

Back in June, Rocko tried to expose Future with throwback footage.
