Drake Parts with PR Firm After Rolling Stone Cover Debacle
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.27.2014



Billboard reports that rapper Drake has parted ways with the PR firm ID-PR two weeks after Drake slammed Rolling Stone for switching his planned cover story for a memoriam of late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. ID-PR had been handling publicity for Drake for the past year.

The firm had previously handled drake's third album Nothing Was The Same and his current Would You Like A Tour?, which wraps on march 26. ID reportedly initiated the split soon after the Rolling Stone debacle.

The Rolling Stone feature was arranged by ID. The switch of the cover stories by the magazine prompted a series of tweets, that have since been deleted, from Drake where he said he was "disgusted" by the magazine running with the Hoffman cover instead of his. He wrote, "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Philip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil." Later, Drake added, "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."

ID later said in a statement, "Drake is an incredibly talented artist and we're proud of our results for 'Nothing Was The Same' and Would You Like A Tour? We wish him the best."
