Future was scheduled to perform at the 2015 BET Awards this past weekend, but pulled out.
During an appearance at Los Angeles’ Supper Club on Monday (June 29), the rapper explained his absence, claiming the network wanted him to do something “corny”… and he wouldn’t do it.
“BET, they had a n*gga about to perform up there or whatever, but under the circumstances of me performing… they tried to get a n*gga to do some off-brand corny sh*t,” Future said.
“I’m not about to sell my soul for no publicity stunts,” he adds.
