Hip Hop Artist Drake Selfishly Lashes Out At Rolling Stone For Bumping Him From The Cover In Favor Of Phillip Seymour Hoffman

Drake who has graced the covers of “GQ,” “Vibe,” “XXL” and “Billboard” in the past year alone — says he’s “done” with magazine interviews after getting incensed at “Rolling Stone” for his treatment in the latest issue. The hip-hop star lashed out at the music magazine for choosing to feature the recently deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover instead of him and took issue with the way he was quoted in his profile commenting on Kanye West. “I never commented on Yeezus” for my interview portion of Rolling Stone, Drake wrote in a series of tweets (two of which have since been deleted). “They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue. I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.” Drake seems to be implying that his comments regarding West were “off the record.” In the profile, Drake appears to dismiss some of the lyrics in “Yeezus.” “There were some real questionable bars on there,” he is quoted in the mag. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous” wouldn’t say some s*** like that.” A Rolling Stone spokesperson says; “We stand by our reporting.”
