Yesterday, we learned of a new no holds barred Rolling Stone interview with Drake in which he took shots at Macklemore for his post-Grammys text to Kendrick Lamar. Though the issue isn’t on stands until tomorrow, scans of the full interview have popped up online and it reveals even more harsh criticism from Drake, this time aimed at Kanye West—though really Fabolous is the one who should be mad. In the interview, Drake says:
“There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili‘ line? Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”
He then backtracks from the “I’m In It” dig by crediting Kanye for his own rise to fame. But now it appears, Drake wants nothing to do with those comments launching a barrage of tweets—the first two he has since deleted—calling out Rolling Stone for potentially twisting his words and also for apparently taking away his cover in favor of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who recently passed away.
UPDATE: The full profile is now up on RollingStone.com.
So did Drake really throw shade at Kanye’s lyrics? You be the judge.
