Drake Slams Rolling Stone For Misquoted 'Yeezus' Comments And Being Replaced By Philip Seymour Hoffman On Cover

Drake is certainly not acting like a Grammy Award winning artist!

The Canadian rapper took to twitter on Thursday (Feb 13th) to criticize the magazine Rolling Stone for pulling his front cover just before its release, he was replaced by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He also addressed false quotes the mag claimed the 27 year-old said, which appear to slam fellow rapper Kanye West's 'Yeezus' album.

"I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone," Drake wrote.

The 'Nothing Was The Same' rapper also alleges Rolling Stone, "took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."

Drake felt "disgusted with that. RIP to Philip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."

The Academy-Award winning actor was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Feb 2nd from an apparent heroin overdose, as a needle was still in his left arm. Rolling Stone were featuring Mr Hoffman's life and acting legacy in their March issue.

These tweets have since been deleted, but the hip-hop star did leave one tweet which aired his feelings towards the media, banning any magazine interviews in the future.

"I'm done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people," he posted. "That's the only way my message gets across accurately."

Drake did not establish if he was stating the interviewer misquoted his comments on the 'Black Skinhead' rapper or if he did not make any such comments at all.

But in the feature profile, comically titled 'Drake: High Times at the YOLO Estate', the 'Take Care' hit maker apparently dissed Kanye on some of his lyrics on 'Yeezus' tracks.

"There were some real questionable bars on there," he is quoted in the mag. "Like that 'Swaghili' line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn't say some sh-t like that."

Rolling Stone's response to Drake's annoyance towards their latest issue is simply, "we stand by our reporting."
