Drake says he’s done with magazine interviews
NEW YORK — Drake lashed out at Rolling Stone after the magazine replaced him on the cover with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and quoted the rapper criticizing some of Kanye West’s lyrics.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, the Grammy winner vented his frustrations and said he was “done doing interviews with magazines.”
“I just want to give my music to the people,” he wrote. “That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”
Other Thursday tweets from the 27-year-old were deleted, including one about his discomfort with Hoffman gracing the cover 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,” he tweeted.
In the interview, Drake talks about growing up as a biracial child in Canada, meeting his mentor Lil Wayne and launching a successful career in pop and rap.
Drake also discussed not attending last month’s Grammy Awards, where he lost three rap trophies to Macklemore &Ryan Lewis, including best rap album, which Drake won last year.
