On Thursday (US time), the rapper posted on Twitter that he’s “done doing interviews for magazines” after Rolling Stone published an interview in which Drake criticised Kanye West’s latest album, Yeezus and yanked the rapper from its cover in favor of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, whose tragic death from an apparent heroin overdose last week shocked Hollywood.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday (US Time), the rapper lashed out at ‘’Rolling Stone’’ claiming the magazine “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," he continued, in an accompanying tweet that misspelled the actor's first name.

"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."
According to the magazine’s interview, Drake was disappointed with West’s latest project - a claim the rapper now refutes:
“There were some real questionable bars on there,” he says in the story. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some s— like that.”
Hitting back at the magazine after the issue hit newsstands, Drake claims he “never commented on Yeezus” during the interview, implying that ‘’Rolling Stone’’ fabricated quotes.
