Drake’s Rolling Stone Tantrum Gets Him Dropped From P.R. Firm

That whole “Philip Seymour Hoffman took my cover” thing really bit him in the azz.

According to Hollywood Reporter:

Two weeks after Drake slammed Rolling Stone for swapping out his planned cover story for a Philip Seymour Hoffman memoriam, the rapper and PR firm ID-PR have parted ways, Billboard has confirmed.

Drake had been working with ID for the past year to handle publicity for third album Nothing Was the Same, as well as his current Would You Like a Tour?, which wraps March 26 with three dates at London’s O2 Arena. According to a source, ID initiated the split soon after the Rolling Stone debacle.

The magazine feature, which ID helped arrange, prompted a series of tweets that have since been deleted in which Drake clarified his comments regarding Kanye West’s Yeezus, saying that they were shared off-the-record, and that he was “disgusted” that the magazine ran with the Hoffman cover instead of his.

“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.” In the only tweet that’s still active, 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.”

On Feb. 14, the five-year anniversary of the day his So Far Gone EP debuted online, Drake issued a more detailed account of his thoughts on the cover to his official OVO blog. “Today I was forced out of my character and felt the need to react swiftly,” he wrote. “These days are the worst ones. Waking up after a great night in the studio and it’s your day to be picked apart. After dwelling on it for a few hours or days, you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time.”

In a statement to Billboard, ID said, “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.”

We would say he must be pissed, but Drake is probably too busy chasing after Rihanna to care.
