While most are attacking Drake for being upset over Rolling Stone’s choice to go with a Philip Seymour Hoffman cover, instead of featuring the rapper as originally planned, music man Questlove is chiming in to give his two cents. 

He airs out his frustrations through a series of tweets:

The last black rapper to cover Rolling Stone was Jay Z back in December 2012, but he shared the multi-cover issue with Eminem, Tupac, and Notorious B.I.G.

Rihanna was the last black female artist to grace the front page back in February of 2013 for a similar feature.

Drake posted an apology to his blog that addressed the incident:

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