Drake Vs Rolling Stone Over Pulled Cover
In a tweet from early Thursday morning (Feb. 13), the rapper implies that the change happened in the final hour, writing, "They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."
Rolling Stone decided, rightly, that the cover should serve as a memorial to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Drake instead gets a nod in the top left corner with the title, "At Home With Hip-Hop's Lonely Prince." In a second tweet, Drake writes, "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."
The second problem Drake has with the mag is a supposed portion of the interview where he comments on Kanye West's latest album, Yeezus. Drake tweets that those quotes are fabricated and that he never spoke about Yeezus. In the interview, which Rolling Stone put online hours after Drake's tweets, has the rapper quoted as saying, "There were some real questionable bars on [Yeezus]. Like that 'Swaghili' line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn't say some sh*t like that."
Drake then backtracks, allegedly saying his criticism comes from a good place: "Kanye's the reason I'm here. I love everything about that guy." There is a lot more including a final tweet.
