Remind me to never do PR for Drake. It will probably never happen, but it seems like one mistake caused him to part ways with his PR firm.
Drake was supposed to be featured on the front of the Rolling Stones magazine, but the Phillip Seymour Hoffman died and he “took” his front page.
Drake was not happy about it.
Like every celebrity he took to Twitter and vented.
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. – Drizzy (@Drake) February 13, 2014
I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. – Drizzy (@Drake) February 13, 2014
Drake’s cover was supposed to help promote his third album “Nothing Was the Same.” According to different articles that is the only reason and interviewed with Rolling Stone in the first place.
Drake later apologized, well of course he did. I am guessing his new PR firm told him to do that. I am surprised he didn’t fire them for telling Drake to admit to the public that he was wrong.
Reports are now saying that ID PR parted ways with Drake. Good PR move. It would look terrible if your star client fired you over something so menial.
It’s a game of Drake said ID PR said.
Lesson learned is always get your star client on the cover of the Rolling Stones magazine … or else!
