Drake made the rounds last week over a min-meltdown, which resulted in the next sole heir to hip-hop, to declare that he’d do no more media interviews. Well it now seems hes come to a different conclusion.

Apparently the Canadian rapper was pissed that the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman superseded an agreement he made with the longstanding Rolling Stone publication for the cover.  And made those concerns public.

Welp, he;’s ad a change of heart.

His publicist released the following to media.

“I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Philip Seymour Hoffman. He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication.”

“My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed. The circumstances at hand are completely justifiable (on the magazine’s behalf), but I was not able to salvage my story or my photos and that was devastating. They ran the issue without giving me a choice to be in it or not. I would have waited until it was my time because I understand the magnitude of the cover they chose but I just wasn’t given that option and that made me feel violated. I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment.”

You got to love social media. It always has a way of escalating and then escalating the same problem.
