Quit Your Bitching, Drake ...

We Warned You About Cover Change

Drake
has no business attacking Rolling Stone or Philip Seymour Hoffman because the magazine gave him advance notice it was dropping him from the cover in favor of PSH.

Sources close to Drake tell TMZ the rapper feels like he was "tricked" because ... "He only did the interview if he was going to be on the cover."

But we've learned Drake was interviewed on January 28, and the photo shoot was also completed before PSH died on Feb. 2.

A rep for RS says this happens all the time when musicians and actors die -- most recently when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston passed away.

Further, sources tell us Drake's camp was told last Friday he wouldn't be on the cover when the mag was released Wednesday. The RS rep would not say if they offered Drake a future cover.

For what it's worth ... Drake has deleted his tweets about the RS cover and Hoffman.

Since when did Rolling Stone ever give a **** (much less its cover to) about Phillip Seymour Hoffman? The media is such a joke.

Oh Drake, we now know you are a cover queen dramaholic, just like baby Kanye. Go get some talent and you will be surprised at how well things will go for you.

Drake is a @$$, but so is a junkie that care about himself more than his three kids! If you think that a junkie is a role model, your priority is screwed! Take your kid to the nearest addict and say her is your great future!

We're really sorry, Drake. You can't believe how much we wish it could have been YOUR R.I.P. cover instead.

Drake is just trying to compete with Con-yay for most self-centered bloated ego narcissist on the planet. It's a tall hill to climb, but it must be said, he made some pretty decent progress with this infantile outburst.
