Drake is upset and “disgusted” at Rolling Stone. According to TMZ on Feb. 13, Drizzy went on a Twitter rant about being misquoted and in the process also disrespected the grave of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman as he also reacted to being replaced on the cover.
What made Drake go off on the magazine? Well, the music magazine published quotes that Drake claims he didn’t say about Kanye West that also seemed to be a diss towards rapper Fabolous.
Drake’s first tweet was in response to a quote he supposedly said about Kanye West that sounded more like a diss. In the interview, Drake labeled some of Kanye’s raps as “questionable” and dissed Fabolous by saying that even he couldn’t have come up with lyrics so weak.
In the first of three tweets, the 27-year-old rapper denied the comments published in the magazine.
“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 was referring to the sudden death of Hoffman when he mentioned “last minute”. Although he may have not meant to directly disrespect the late actor, his rant came off as a bit selfish. He did offer his respect to the deceased in his next tweet.
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
That press he is referring to may have caused rift between him and Kanye, someone he thinks of as his mentor. It is the reason why Drake now claims he is done with magazines as he summed up in his third tweet.
“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.”
Rolling Stone claims they did report it accurately, saying “we stand by our reporting.”
