Drake is upset and isn’t afraid to let everyone know about it. His latest feud isn’t with another rapper, this time it is with one of the biggestmagazines in the business, Rolling Stone. Due to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman’s tragic passing, Rolling Stone made the decision to put him on the cover instead of Drake. Drake was obviously upset by the decision, taking to his Twitter page to unleash a three-tweet rant against the music magazine.

“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.” he tweeted on February 13.

In the interview, the rapper supposedly dissed some of Kanye West’s raps as “questionable,” adding that “even Fabolous wouldn’t say” some of the lines that the “Blood on the Leaves” rapper put in his album per NY Daily News. Perhaps the comments were made off-the-record but either way they have now made it in print that is being distributed across the country. Drake also appears to be upset that West – the rapper he has often looked up to as his mentor – will find out about his diss.

“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil,” he wrote shortly after his first tweet. “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,” he wrote in his third and perhaps final tweet of the series.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Feb. 2 after a supsected heroin overdose. Rolling Stone covers the actor’s life and legacy in their March issue. Rolling Stone issued a response to the rapper’s tirade, simply stating, “We stand by our reporting.”
