Drake Apologizes About Rolling Stone and His Philip Seymour Hoffman Tweets
By Paul de Revere
After Drake’s refreshing candor about the music industry, the GRAMMYs and Macklemore and Kendrick Lamar’s post-GRAMMY dynamic in his latest Rolling Stone profile, Drake has maybe kept it a little too real lately.
His recent Twitter mini-rant about his treatment in Rolling Stone’s pages— claiming he never made criticisms about Kanye West’s Yeezus record, that he didn’t get the cover over the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman— has shown what happens when, to quote Chappelle’s Show, Keeping It Real Goes Wrong. The tweets were swiftly deleted, but not without plenty of users screen capturing or transcribing it first.
Now Drake has issued an apology on his October’s Very Own blog where he changes his tone and apologizes defiantly.
