Drake Disses Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Rolling Stone

February 13, 2014

Staff Reports --


Aubrey "Drake" Graham has announced he is done doing interviews with magazines.

It seems the rapper is upset that his interview with Rolling Stone magazine was supposed to land him on the cover, but instead it went to actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who died on Feb. 2.

The Rolling Stone cover does however tease a Drake interview on the cover. It reads: "Drake: At Home With Hip-Hop's Lonely Prince."

And here is what Drake tweeted about being nixed from the cover of the music 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."

"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."

What do you think? Are his frustrations warranted, or is he being disrespectful to Hoffman?
