Drake Praises Philip Seymour Hoffman In Defiant Apology Blog

(Radio.com) After Drake's refreshing candor about the music industry, the GRAMMYs and Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar's post-GRAMMY dynamic in his latest Rolling Stone profile, Drake has maybe kept it a little too real lately.

His recent Twitter mini-rant about his treatment in Rolling Stone's pages- claiming he never made criticisms about Kanye West's Yeezus record, that he didn't get the cover over the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman- has shown what happens when, to quote Chappelle's Show, Keeping It Real Goes Wrong. The tweets were swiftly deleted, but not without plenty of users screen capturing or transcribing it first.

Now Drake has issued an apology on his October's Very Own blog where he changes his tone and apologizes defiantly. He says in part, "I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication.

"My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed. The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazines behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating.

"They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn't given that option and that made me feel violated."
