Published Feb 13, 2014Those hoping to one day land a phoner with Drake for their college newspaper will have to wait, as the rapper born Aubrey Graham has said he's done doing interviews. According to Drake, he was misquoted in Rolling Stone.
The same interview that birthed yesterday's (February 12) delightful Macklemore diss has also spawned another controversial quote. In the magazine's print edition, Drake appears to take issue with Kanye West's lyricism on Yeezus.
"There were some real questionable bars on there," he allegedly said. "Like that 'Swaghili' line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn't say some shit like that."
Even though the issue hasn't hit shelves yet, Drizzy's already doing damage control. Over on Twitter, he denied the quotes, saying, "I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone...."
Of course, it's highly unlikely that the quotes appeared out of nowhere. Instead, there may have been some confusion over whether the statements were off the record or not.
Regardless, Drake's frustration with the long-running music publication doesn't end there. He's also annoyed that his cover story slot was handed over to the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.
"They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue," he continued. "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman [sic]. All respect due. But the press is evil."
As such, at least for now, Drake has said he will no longer give interviews to the press.
"I'm done doing interviews for magazines," he wrote. "I just want to give my music to the people. That's the only way my message gets across accurately."
