Future settles legal war with former producer

Rapper Future has agreed to settle an 18-month legal spat with his producer, Rocko.

The hitmaker sued his former pal after claiming the rapper struck a side deal with Epic Records that cut Rocko out of millions.

Future countersued, insisting his deal with Rocko was never exclusive.

But the Christmas spirit seems to have showered the Mask Off rapper with goodwill - the producer claims the legal battle is over and his old friend has agreed to pay up.

Both sides have requested a dismissal of the case, according to TMZ, and the original plaintiff's lawyers tell the outlet their client is happy with the "very successful result".

It is not clear what the settlement fee is, but Rocko was originally seeking $10 million .
