Drake Says Bye To His Publicist Following Rolling Stone Storm
The highly publicized Drake vs. Rolling Stone magazine disagreement from earlier this month has forced Drake to take further steps, and part with his longtime publicist.
Drake fell out with the editors of the much-admired magazine after they, in the last minute, snubbed his cover and article replacing it with a tribute to the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Drake quickly took to Twitter following the drop announcing, “They… 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… I’m done doing interviews for magazine.”
Of course, as all honestly spoken, heat-of-the-moment statements go, this one too was quickly dismissed, when Drake swiftly changed his tune and said, “I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication.”
Despite the clemency to Rolling Stones, Drake wasn’t as sympathetic to his publicist and has officially left his team at the LA-based publicity firm ID PR. In turn, ID PR have released a statement of their own saying, “Drake is an incredibly talented artist and we’re proud of our results for Nothing Was The Same (album) and Would You Like A Tour? (tour) We wish him the best.”
