Rolling Stone Responds To Drake

Rolling Stone says that Drake was notified ahead of time that his cover story would be switched out.

Earlier today (February 13), Drake levied criticism toward Rolling Stone, complaining via Twitter that the magazine had taken his cover story away from him, instead placing recently-deceased actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman on the cover.

Now, Rolling Stone has responded, stating that magazine covers being switched is a routine matter when musician and actors die, reports TMZ. A rep for the magazine cited Lou Reed and Whitney Houston as examples.

TMZ also reports that Drake's camp was notified last Friday that he would not be on the cover when the magazine would be released.

Since the release of the article, which quotes Drake as having both disparaged and applauded Jay Z and Kanye West, Drake has denied stating anything about Kanye West's Yeezus album, and tweeted that "the press is evil."

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

    "Drake has denied stating anything about Kanye West's Yeezus album," He only denied saying it in the "interview portion" of their visit. He didn't actually deny saying it but he should know better by now.

      Notice how Drake didn't deny saying that shit about Yeezus, he just said he didn't say it "during the interview portion", which means he still said it but thought they weren't gonna quote him!!!!

    By no means do I consider myself a Drake fan or defender. However, he didn't deny making negative remarks about Kanye. He said he didn't say those things in the "interview portion" (directly quoted from his tweets). It's easy to infer that he meant that he made those comments off-the-record. Yea, he should've explicitly used the phrase "off-the-record" because everyone, presumably, knows what that means. But HipHopDX, you champion yourselves as an institution of hip hop journalism, and claiming that he denies making those remarks is a dumb interpretation of his tweeted statement. Y'all should know better. No wonder hip hop artists don't fuck with the press like they used to.
