Drake apologized Friday for his comments on his Rolling Stone interview on his blog, saying, "They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn't given that option and that made me feel violated."
The performer did an interview with Rolling Stone, and was purportedly going to be on the cover of the February issue. However, those plans changed when Philip Seymour Hoffman died on February 2, and Drake wasted little time in letting the world know he was none too pleased with the choice.
The first two tweets, now deleted, read as follows:
"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."
"I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."
And this tweet is still there:
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.

Drake's comments in the magazine about Kanye West's album are also stirring up some controversy. He said in the magazine "There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that 'Swaghili' line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn't say some s**t like that." Drake denies the comments as being insulting.
That Tumblr craze around "Sad Drake" is about to fire up again, we think.
