Drake wasn’t pleased when he realized that his planned Rolling Stone cover was dropped at the last minute.
The 27-year-old rapper took to Twitter to complain, but the reason for the change was to honor the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Drake’s cover was ditched so the magazine could honor the actor who tragically died of a drug overdose.
We can understand a bit why Drake would be upset. They are honoring a drug addict, but it’s still sad and he was a brilliant actor. Drizzy should have kept those comments to himself.
Drake had taken to Twitter to say Rolling Stone had misquoted him on Kanye West. He also slammed the iconic magazine for “taking his cover”.
In the interview the rapper reportedly slammed some of Kanye West’s raps as “questionable,” adding that “even Fabolous wouldn’t say” some of the lines that Kanye did on his album.
He must have realized he made an ass of himself with his complaints of his magazine cover. He went back on Twitter to comment again.
The Canadian rapper later said he was “finished” doing interview for magazines.
Drake reportedly also slammed Macklemore in his Rolling Stone interview over his text to Kendrick Lamar. Macklemore told Lamar he wanted him to win and felt the award should have gone to him instead.
Drake felt the move wasn’t genuine. He said, “That sh** was wack as f***. I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better – make better music'”.
He adds, “It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?”
Rolling Stone issued a statement in response to the rapper’s rant, saying “we stand by our reporting.”
