Drake Isn’t Too Happy with ‘Rolling Stone’
There was some drama between Drake and Rolling Stone this week.
In a series of tweets that have since been deleted, Drake reportedly stated that his supposed criticisms of Kanye West’s Yeezus, which appeared in his recent interview with the mag, were fabricated, and that Rolling Stone “took [his] cover” from him and gave it to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman last-minute.
Drake has since cleared up the PSH comments in a blog post, but it reads more like a “sorry I’m not sorry” apology. Check it out here.
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.—
