Rolling Stone responds...
UPDATED: TMZ reports that Rolling Stone has replied to Drake's complaints over getting replaced on the cover of the magazine. Sources claim that Drake was "ticked" because "he only did the interview if he was going to be on the cover."
Drake was interviewed on January 28 and the photo shoot was completed before Hoffman died on February 2.
A representative for the magazine said this regularly happens when musicians and actors die, citing examples of when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston died. Drake's group was told last Friday he wouldn't be on the cover when the magazine was released. It's unknown if Drake was offered a future cover.
Drake has since deleted his tweets about the cover and Hoffman.
ORIGINAL: Drake recently posted on Twitter that he was upset that his cover of Rolling Stone was changed in favor of the recently deceased Philip Seymour Hoffman. He started by complaining that he was misquoted about Kanye West's Yeezus, but quickly gave his feelings on the cover. He wrote:
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.
