Drake: “Rolling Stone” Gave “My Cover” to Philip Seymour Hoffman
Drake is making headlines for his controversial comments in the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death earlier this month.
The rapper took to Twitter to express his displeasure with “Rolling Stone” for allegedly spinning his comments about Kanye West.
Specifically, Drake was angry in the piece, he reportedly called out some “real questionable bars” in West’s “Yeezus” album, but things took an uncomfortable turn.
“They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet, according to Billboard.
Of course, the cover ended up being changed shortly before publication in order to honor Hoffman, a shift that could not have been foreseen due to the actor’s tragic passing.
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to [Philip] Seymour Hoffman,” Drake later posted. “All respect due. But the press is evil.”
The former “Degrassi” star finished his point by claiming that he’s done being interviewed by magazines and chooses to speak to fans solely through his music.
