Drake Slams Rolling Stone for Misquoting Him, Putting Philip Seymour Hoffman on Cover
by Liz Raftery
Drake won’t be doing any more magazine interviews — or so he says.
“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone. They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue,” Drake posted on Thursday, according to Vulture.
He later added: “I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip (sic) Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
Both tweets have since been deleted. The only post about the article that remains on Drake’s feed reads: “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.”
The quote in question takes jabs at West’s Grammy-nominated album Yeezus and the rapper Fabolous. As reported by Rolling Stone, Drake said, “There were some real questionable bars on [Yeezus]. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some s— like that.”
