Rolling Stone

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.

It's black history month and they dropped the black guy for a white guy in a Rolling Stones Magazine? PSH should have waited until March to die. It's such a disgrace to BHM! Django is probably more pissed than Fake.. I mean Drake. Talk about starting from the bottom and now I'm gone!

PSH was at least talented. Drake is one of too many idiotic ****s with no talent who caters to 9 year olds. **** him. He doesn't deserve to be on the cover of MAD magazine.

Hardly surprising. You gotta think that the guy that sings the lyrics "First name Greatest, last name Ever" might have a bit of an ego.

Lets exploit a dead overrated junkie to sell magazines. Lets push the only hope rap has besides Em for legitimacy to the side. Very short sighted of RS. Drake will never do their "cover" and I agree with dude that said PSH is deader than RS

PSH is everything that is wrong with America. A self absorbed drug addict we regard as a "genius."
