Music magazine Rolling Stone responds to Young Money rapper Drake’s tense remarks fired at its publication.
A rep for RS says this happens all the time when musicians and actors die — most recently when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston passed away. Further, the RS rep says Drake’s camp was told last Friday he wouldn’t be on the cover when the mag was released Wednesday. The rep would not say if they offered Drake a future cover. (Rolling Stone)
Early Thursday (February 13), Drizzy Drake jumped onto Twitter to unleash some fury toward the publication.
“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 tweeted February 13.
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”
“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.” (Drake’s Twitter)
