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.

Nobody Special    

Fake is such a Narcisist he read every single post here and Flagged everything he did not Like. That's the sign of a true Loser.

Maybe Next Time He will not Rush to Tweet What a Loser he is.

People That Tweet and Do Instagram are troubled to begin with. Look at Me, Follow Me, I am Somebody...

I watched one of his Rap songs on youtube, the way he slithers on the stage is creepy, his stutter and everything is just wrong about so-called Rap Music.

I'LL Take Snoop on a Big Wheel any day.

A man Over doses and get a cover of a magazine! Am I the only person that see a problem with this. I don't care how good an actor you are if you die from drugs or suicide you don't get honored you become forgotten. Don't glorify his life. He had all the money In the world to seek help, he chose to give in to his addictions. He is an embarrassment to his family.

Cancelled my subscription to RS once I realized they're more concerned with left wing politics than music. If you're going to put someone who OD on the cover it should've been Whitney.

Sure - ignore the death of someone who's actually contributed to the arts and put yet another "ME-ME-ME" rapper on the cover. Drake's ego is limitless.
