Drake says he won’t do interviews with magazines following a recent story in Rolling Stone magazine.
The rapper was supposed to be on the cover of the magazine’s new issue, but was replaced with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Drake tweeted Thursday that he’s “done doing interviews with magazines.”
“I just want to give my music to the people,” he wrote. “That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”
Other Thursday tweets from the 27-year-old were deleted, including one about his discomfort with Hoffman gracing the cover of Rolling Stone.
“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil,” he tweeted.
In the interview, Drake talks about growing up as a biracial child in Canada, meeting his mentor Lil Wayne and launching a successful career in pop and rap.
Drake also tweeted Thursday that he never spoke of Kanye West’s “Yeezus” album during the interview. Rolling Stone quotes Drake calling some of West’s lyrics “questionable,” along with him saying he “loves” the outspoken rapper.
“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone,” he tweeted, which was deleted.
Rolling Stone said in a statement that “we stand by our reporting.” A representative for Drake didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.
The issue hits newsstands Friday.
