Drake Is Pissed at 'Rolling Stone' Now, Says He's Never Granting a Magazine Interview Again
Rolling Stone released a portion of the interview yesterday -- with Drake calling Macklemore "wack as fuck" -- but the full story won't be released until tomorrow. However, Rap Dose has gotten a hold of the whole thing and it seems that Macklemore isn't the only rapper Drake has opinions about. In the interview, Drake says of Kanye West's Yeezus: "There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that." The problem is, Drake didn't think he was on the record at the time, and he's pissed about the quote making it into the interview.
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.— Drizzy (@Drake) February 13, 2014
He's also pissed about losing the cover of the issue, which went to Philip Seymour Hoffman after his death earlier this month.
I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.— Drizzy (@Drake) February 13, 2014
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.— Drizzy (@Drake) February 13, 2014
Here is what the cover will look like when the magazine comes out Friday:
In any case, expect Drake's team to go on the defensive soon, as putting down a beloved actor's death is not at all the sort of behavior that publicists encourage.
