Drake Slams Rolling Stone for Publishing Kanye West Comments

Drake

Macklemore isn’t the only rapper coming under fire in Drake’s Rolling Stone interview. The Canadian MC reportedly took shots at his idol Kanye West.

Despite their friendship, Drake wasn’t afraid to criticize Kanye’s acclaimed album Yeezus.

“There were some real questionable bars on there,” he told the magazine’s Jonah Weiner, who visited the rapper at his YOLO estate in Hidden Hills, Calif. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”

But he did admit that he idolizes the Chicago MC. “Kanye’s the reason I’m here. I love everything about that guy,” he said.

After the quotes were published, Drake fired back at the magazine on Twitter. While he did not deny making the Yeezus statements, he hinted that his comments were off the record.

“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone,” he tweeted.

Drake was set to appear on the cover of the magazine, but it was pulled at the last minute and given to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died suddenly of a drug overdose last week. He slammed the magazine for their decision to replace him.

“They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue,” he said. “I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”

Going forward, he plans to refrain from doing press. “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.”

    If you don’t want something to be publicized then don’t say it. Yeah I know it’s not ethical for reporters to publish what is off the record, but how many times have we seen this happen before? A lot of them don’t care about morals and just want a good story. Instead of bitching about it he should’ve just kept his mouth shut in the first place.

    “Talking that shit with your back to me, just know it always get back to me” Should have taken your own advice and you wouldn’t of had to address on twitter.

    He’s too cocky if this were Kendrick, Chris Brown, Rihanna,Kanye or Beyonce y’all would have praised them, but cause it’s him he’s too cocky? Stop playing favorites. They were wrong and he just wanted to let them know. I’m pretty sure if you were a celeb, you would’ve done the same damn thing, and what does perspective have o do w/ it, he’s just standing up for himself. If he’s quiet he’s a coward and if he open his mouth he’s a problem starter? Since when can people not stand up for themselves. I’m pretty sure if y’all were in his position you would have done the same, so stop being hypocrites and stfu. You just want to have something negative to say about everything he says? Why must he keep quiet about everything since when does that ever do any good? Please take some seats cause you sound like board ass haters. Because you don’t like him he must be quiet about everything, typical blacks hating e/o for no apparent reason, just sthu!

    Umm, didn’t Drake get pissed when Future said similar shit about his album ,and then kicked him off of his tour, only to put him back on it. And then gets mad because he lost his RS cover to someone who passed away….This nigga.

    Drake is usually a drama queen but I agree with him. RIP to Philip Seymour but they’re wrong for pulling DRAKE cover. Like it would’ve hurt to have Philip Seymour on the next issue. Also, I don’t think it’s wrong to criticize someone you love. It’s all love with him and Kanye.

    kanye gave him the leverage to do that, If he has maintained the distance it would’ve been all respect 4 ye bt he mitigated that for calling drake RAPgod.
