Toronto-born rap superstar, Drake, is absolutely “disgusted” with Rolling Stone magazine, and all press for that matter, for their choice to drop him at least minute in favor of a tribute to late actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

According to a few tweets dropped by the ‘Started From The Bottom’ rapper on Thursday, Rolling Stone not only removed him from the cover, but also falsified the interview inside.

“I never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone. They also took me cover from me last minute and ran the issue,” Drake wrote.

Rolling Stone magazine reports that Drake said of Yeezus (Kanye West), “There were some real questionable bars on there… Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that… (But) Kanye’s the reason why I’m here. I love everything about that guy.”

Immediately following his first tweet, Drake went on to post, “I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil.”

Less than 10 minutes later, he tweeted, “I’m done doing interview for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Drake later deleted two of the three tweets.
