Drake a Tweeting Twit

Posted by admin On February - 14 - 2014

How embarrassing.  The Mayor is bad enough, but now Toronto’s beloved local Rap artist and Raptors spokesman Drake has stuck his gold-plated foot in his mouth.

Drake took to Twitter on Thursday to bitch and moan that he was dissed by Rolling Stone magazine, who opted to drop “his cover” scheduled for the March issue, in favour of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died of a heroin overdose recently in New York city.

What a twit.

I’m sure Rolling Stone is loving all the free publicity.  It will be interesting to see if they eventually run the Drake cover, and if so, which cover will sell more copies.
