Drake is Pissed at Rolling Stone; Vows Never To Give Another Magazine interview & Says What About Kanye West?!

Yesterday, Rolling Stone magazine released a portion Drake‘s interview — with the rapper calling Macklemore‘s apology text to Kendrick Lamar “wack as f**k.”

Drake also said that he and the rest of the Grammy nominees should have received an apology from Macklemore.

Here’s an excerpt from the issue of Drake sharing his thoughts about Macklemore’s Grammy win:

“I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music,’…It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?

“This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it’s racial, or whether it’s just the fact that he tapped into something we can’t tap into. That’s just how the cards fall. Own your shit.

“To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”

Now, Drake is pissed at Rolling Stone for stirring up unnecessary drama with his recent interview and took to Twitter to say the magazine also replaced his cover with a photo of deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He tweeted:

I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.

The rapper vowed never to give another magazine interview, adding:

“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.”

But what did he also say about Kanye West‘s Yeezus single?

Drake says, “There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.” The problem is, Drake didn’t think he was on the record at the time, and he’s pissed about the quote making it into the interview.

The “Young Money” rapper tried to clear things up by saying:

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.
