Drake is upset over the fact that Rolling Stone magazine has chosen to put the recently deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover of this month’s issue instead of Drake.
"They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue," Drake tweeted.
Hoffman was found dead at his apartment on Feb 2, after an overdose of heroin. Rolling Stone’s March issue features the recently deceased actor on the cover.
Since the occurrence, Drake has said that he is done doing interviews and, according to the New York Daily News, the rapper claims that he has been misquoted about Kanye West in the interview for the issue.
Drake tweeted, “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…I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
Rolling Stone responded to the rapper's backlash with a statement which said, “We stand by our reporting."
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.
