Rolling Stone to Drake: Shut Your Yap, We Told You About Cover Change!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rolling Stone is firing back at Drake for his complaints about being dropped from the cover, saying he was told in advance that the switch was happening.

Drake ripped Rolling Stone earlier today, claiming that he was unceremoniously replaced by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman on the front of the new issue.

The rapper made it clear he wasn't throwing shade on PSH, but sources close to Drizzy say "he only did the interview to be on the cover," and feels "tricked."

He called the press "evil" in a Tweet earlier today.

Drake was interviewed on January 28, and the photo shoot with the magazine was also completed before Philip Seymour Hoffman died on February 2.

A rep for Rolling Stone says this happens all the time if musicians and actors pass away, with other recent examples being Lou Reed and Whitney Houston.

Regardless, the publication insists his camp was informed last Friday that he wouldn't be on the cover when the issue was released this Wednesday.

Drake, who also denies speaking on the record to Rolling Stone about Kanye West's Yeezus, has deleted his tweets about both the cover and Hoffman.

As for calling Macklemore wack as f--k for apologizing to Kendrick Lamar for winning Best Rap Album, then sharing a screen shot of the text ... no retraction.
