It must be that time of the month for Drake, because bitch is salty. He did an interview for Rolling Stone and now is crying because he doesn’t appreciate the journalists doing their job and actually printing the shit talking he was doing.
Oh and he really is upset about the fact that they dared to not use his smug “I’m back to banging Rihanna” face on the cover. It’s not like they pulled it because they wanted to honor the tragic passing of an Academy Award winning actor. Oh wait…
Drake took this interview with Rolling Stone as an opportunity to throw some massive shade at some fellow rappers. He hits hard at the current King of White rappers, Macklemore, and his win at the Grammys. In case you don’t remember, after winning the award for Best Rap Album, Macklemore sent some weird ass apology text to Kendrick Lamar, saying he was sorry for winning and that Lamar was robbed.
It was kind of strange all on its own, because what was Kendrick supposed to say to that? “Yea you’re right, you stole my shit because your cracker ass is more marketable for the general public!” But then it was just eye roll worthy because Macklemore took a picture of the text and posted it on Instagram, just to make sure that everybody saw how humble Macklemore is.
Drake just did what everyone else was already doing, judging the hell out of that obvious stunt.
I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill,” Drake said. “Take your W, and if you feel you don’t deserve it, go get better — make your music.”
“Why do that? Why feel guilt?” he added. “You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won? To name just Kendrick? That shit made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”
But then he had to add the bit about how it made him feel funny, and the whole thing turned into a “Wahh, why didn’t you think *I* had the best album?” Because you know if Macklemore had texted him, posted online or not, Drake would have framed that shit and been like “I am finally a real rapper! Maybe now they will all forget my real name is Aubrey!” For the record, Wheelchair Jimmy, no one will ever forget that.
Drake then went on to talk shit about Kanye West and manage to throw a little side eye at Fabolous at the same time.
“There were some real questionable bars on there,” Drake says of Kanye’s Yeezus Album. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”
Fabolous is a terrible rapper, but Drake knows better than to speak off the greatest underappreciated rapper EVER. Apparently, this shit talking was supposed to be on the downlow and not put into print, and Drake was not a happy camper to see it included in the interview. So he Tweeted his angst because that is what all mature adults do not a days. And he took it a little too far.
So, Drake sits in front of a guy recording his every word for an interview, gives the dude some gold mine snippets, and then expects him not to use it? Yea okay, Aubrey. And then to bitch about losing the cover? And use the word “disgusted?” Yes, I am sure you really wanted the cover but I am also pretty sure in almost every world, the death of a supremely talented actor with decades under his belt will trump your smug face.
Drake quickly deleted the Tweets since he realized being an insensitive dick wasn’t a good look for him. Rolling Stone also came out and called bullshit on Drake pretending like he was shocked by the cover change, saying they let him know a few days in advance and that he seemed to be understanding. Yesterday, Drake posted an actual apology on his website.
“I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment.”
Hmm, looks like someone realized that pissing off one of the biggest music centric magazines might not be such a good idea. Nor is coming off like a totally selfish immature petulant child. Drake went on to say he was just disappointed because he had hoped the magazine would have just postponed his interview in order to keep him on the cover, rather than just running with it anyway. Yup, still not really getting it, are we Drake?
If tantrums like this happen every time an interview doesn’t go quite the way little Aubrey Graham envisioned it, I really hope he is joking about boycotting doing anymore. This shit is laughable.
