Aubrey says the “press is evil” and promises to never do another magazine interview.
It appears that Macklemore wasn’t the only rapper catching shade from Drake in his Rolling Stone profile.
Aubrey’s interview also included jabs at both Kanye West and Fabolous, criticizing the lyrical content on Yeezus:
Their patched-up friendship doesn’t exclude criticism. For instance, Drake says that he was ambivalent about Kanye’s last album, Yeezus. “There were some real questionable bars on there,” he says. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some sh*t like that.” But Drake says he speaks from a bedrock of deep respect: “Kanye’s the reason I’m here. I love everything about that guy.”
This morning, Drake took to Twitter to retract his commentary on Yeezus and rip Rolling Stone for pulling him from the cover of the latest issue of the magazine, in favor of the recently-deceased Philip Seymour Hoffman. Drake also stated that he is done giving interviews to magazines.
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.
