Calling Them Out: Drake Denies Dissing Kanye In Rolling Stone

Drake has been the center of attention of the rap news world for comments that he reportedly made in an upcoming Rolling Stone interview about Kanye West, Macklemore and Rihanna. Now the Toronto rapper has taken to Twitter to deny the reports that Rolling Stone made that claim that some of Kanye’s Yeezus lines were “questionable” and that Macklemore’s Grammy apology to Kendrick Lamar was “whack as f*ck.” As reported by

“The Toronto rapper’s name is spiraling around gossip blogs for comments about Macklemore and Kanye West. Yesterday (Feb. 12), Drizzy was slammed for expressing his displeasure over Macklemore apologizing to Kendrick Lamar for his Grammy wins. Now, Drake is being put on blast for reportedly criticizing some of Kanye’s lyrics on Yeezus. The publication says OVO’s Own threw shade at Yeezy for some of his rhymes on the album.”

Drake denied those claims on Twitter, stating:

“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.”

“I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. 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.”

Although Drake denies the comments, Rolling Stone is apparently sticking by its report. The publication posted the full interview online and MTV correspondent Rob Markman “confirmed” with a Rolling Stone rep that the comments were made.

What’s interesting is that Drake is not denying the comments he made about Macklemore’s text or Rihanna, only his comments about Kanye.

Check out the comments in question below:

On Kanye West:

“There were some real questionable bars on there,” Drake says of Kanye‘s Yeezus album. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.

“Kanye and me are friends; we’re plotting on getting some work done together. Kanye’s the reason I’m here. I love everything about that guy.”

On Rihanna:

“She’s the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like ‘Man, that would be good’. We have fun together, she’s cool and s**t. But we’re just friends, she’s my dog for life. I’m not after p***y like I was three years ago, when I was trying to make up for all the years when no girl would talk to me. But I haven’t met somebody that makes everybody else not matter.”

On the Grammys:

“It becomes more apparent how irrelevant our genre is to them. They were trying to utilize me to sell the show, requesting me to come and perform “Hold On, We’re Going Home” but they didn’t’ nominate it for anything! They’re calling me, e-mailing me every day to do some elaborate performance and bring them viewers, but I didn’t get a nomination for Album of The Year. I didn’t get a nomination for Song of The Year.”
