Drake's Sorry For Yelling at Rolling Stone About That Hoffman Cover


Guys, Drake is sorry for impersonating Kanye West yesterday and yelling at the Rolling Stone magazine staff — and innocent social media bystanders — when his scheduled cover was replaced with an image of the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

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.

The Canadian MC now understands that the magazine giving “his cover” to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman was totally understandable. His bad, eh?

Early this morning, Drake got in touch with his feelings, along with some weed probably, and realized that PSH nor Rolling Stone wronged him by dying or celebrating the great actor with a magazine cover, respectively. The sweater enthusiast then wrote the following on his October’s Very Own website:

Tough Day At The Office
With today being the 5th anniversary of So Far Gone I figured it’s fitting to return to it’s place of its origin in order to clear the air about an extremely emotional day. I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed. The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazines behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating. They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn’t given that option and that made me feel violated. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment. I am still the same person. Today I was forced out of my character and felt the need to react swiftly. These days are the worst ones. Waking up after a great night in the studio and it’s your day to be picked apart. After dwelling on it for a few hours or days you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time. So here I am having that moment. I once again apologize to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way. I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.
The Boy

Well, at least Drake realized that he sounded like an ungrateful child, so that counts for something, right? Meanwhile, Kanye West returned for his crown as hip-hop’s biggest ranter last night during a stop on his Yeezus tour where he called out MTV’s Sway and anyone else who’s ever talked about him and his “girlfriend.” (Wait, aren’t Kanye and Kim Kardashian engaged these days? Haven’t they been for months?)

Don’t worry Kanye, Drake will never claim your crown of crazy, that festering madness is all yours.
