PR Firm Drops Drake Over Rolling Stone Tantrum


Earlier this month Drake threw a raging hissy fit after he was bumped from the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine in favor of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman who died from a drug overdose [click here if you missed that].

That little stunt cost Drake his PR firm...

According to The Hollywood Reporter high powered PR firm ID cut ties with Drake after his childish rant.

Drake had been with ID for over a year.

PR firms lost their celeb clients long ago when celebs decided to be they own PR firms and join stalkerspace, stalkerbook, twitstalker, and all those other sites. The people that public once thought celebs were show us that they really ain't or about shit once they joined those sites. I don't understand how PR firms thought they could still be in business, let alone make money when your celeb clients can do it for free. The internet age has change the game and in some cases has ruined it.

It was very selfish & immature of Drake to be bitchin' over the cover when a great actor's passing trumped him...I feel his pain with the interviewer twisting his words but that goes with the territory of stardom...go find some real shit to be upset about!

@10:36 I agree more should be dropped and maybe they are beginning to unravel these demeaning artists.

Oh wait, they are not ARTISTS - entertainers, rappers, frauds call them what you want but not ARTISTS!

Isn't he part Jew?

yeah,but the other part(black) negates that whenever he steps outta line, like he did re: the rs cover.

I highly doubt Drake give two fuks......im glad they put the fat white boy on the cover, bc he definitely didn't die A noble way....he was a drug head and died with a needle stuck in his arm....LET THE WORLD SEE, WHITE PEOPLE ARE JUST AS FUCKED UP, IF NOT MORE, than everybody else.....

I wish what happened in that movie Pompeii would happen in Hollywood. Just burn everyone and everything and have to start over from scratch.

So what they dropped him! His career still goes on. It's NOT like they are the only PR firm in town! After they put that coke head on their cover , he should have fired them!! Moving right along.

Oh well, keep it movin

Why they gotta do the black man like that?

Drake is Jewish. He will be ok. Trust. He is a bigger to get that rap money. But like he said at the end of the days he is taking a white Jewish woman home to his mother and calling it a day.

Like PRINCE just said, the whites get a second chance, the blacks dont

Drake got dropped because he called a spade a spade. All these people runnining around talking about the world lost a great actor. Lets not forget said actor was found dead with a needle in his arm and baggies of heroine around him. Yeah, lets put that dude on the cover of the magazine, I'd rather them had bumped Drake and paut up the other faces of drugs, the children who overdosed in the time between PSH death and the print date.

LOL PR Firms are a plenty but there's only one Drake...it's their job to deal with this ish isn't it ? Fuck outta here, they will be out of business, I'd never hire them to protect my image.

Drake gets backlashed by his own they do that you know.

A guy came out and said he was phs lover while drunk. I thought liquor is the truth serum? That alleged lover, received payment from enquirer retracted his statement. In reality the alleged lover was a s/m client that likes to suck cock.

@11:04am What the fuck does Philip Seymour Hoffman talent has to do with his drug issue? Just like Michael Jackson he had drug issues obviously but what did that have to do with his fucking talent?

You are mixed up with someone preaching don't do drugs....and they are the mutha fucka's that are getting high!

So what he died with a needle in his arm? He still was a great actor. It sucks he died that way but it doesn't take away from his acting abilities. I liked anything he was in. Some of you are so harsh, you're sitting behind a keyboard you're cowards. Phillip Seymour had demons just like other people. He still was a respected man in Hollywood and among his peers. Niggers and flies stay on RWS.

No big deal. Like 11:36AM said, there are others.

Drake probably cradled his Galaxy phone to his chest, squeezed his eyes closed really tight and cried silently to himself when he got the news of this. you know how sensitive these lightskinned punk ass niggas be.

Niggers and flies = negative ass people. There is only a handful of black people who lift each other up. Then there are black people who feel entitled then are surprised when they get shutdown. And then here is RWS commenters who stay with the negative remarks and when someone says something of common sense, only niggers comeback with a but hurt comment like you. Niggers and flies. ...

Isn't it the PR firm's job to clean up messes like that?? Strange story indeed but whatevs..what drake really needs is a new style team - I can't stand how he dresses but I love his music

He looks good in that pic but his regular style is usually so off

Don't often agree with you but I think you are right here.
His entitled and vain ass got him acting up, and he was quickly dealt with, by the public, the media and now his PR firm.

ID PR was hired for the tour and new album only he promo is done ...they only had 30 days left on their contract

Id dont think Drake was going to keep them any longer than their current contract...

Drakes outburst included reps from ID ...he was unprofessional ...they were the ones who handled him getting the cover...

According to Drake their promo was done ...behind the scenes they say its because of his treament of a PR rep.....I think it was mutal disgust then...it was an ego game of who could spin the press to save face...looks like ID PR won.

long time lurker said...

'the' promo is done...lol not 'he'...

long time lurker said...

to the person that asked the question about the PR firm being in place to clean up messy situations...No ID was brought in specifically to do short term promo for his tour and new album only...


they werent hired for crisis management...he has a personal publicist

Anonymous said...

Drake comes off as an asshole, which I'm not surprised. Isn't this the second PR firm that dropped him because of his anctics. Yeah Baby you teaching him real well, smh!
