Drake’s recent blowup with Rolling Stone Magazine was such a disaster that the PR company he hired to help him with his last album dropped him.
Just to refresh your memory, Drake hopped on Twitter and dragged Rolling Stone Magazine after they decided to pull his cover last-minute to honor deceased actor Philip Seymour instead.
He then claimed that he would never again do another magazine interview, and he was also upset that the publication ran with some quotes about his good friend Kanye West.
But now more gossip is coming out about Drake’s alleged behind the scenes behavior. And those in the industry are starting to think his management company is going to ruin his music career, as well as his alleged diva like behavior.
Apparently being dropped from public relations firm ID isn’t the first issue Drake’s had regarding his behavior.
The New York Post reports:
Billboard on Friday reported Drake and ID split after he ranted on Twitter over losing a Rolling Stone cover to Hoffman after his tragic death: “I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”
But we hear that was the last straw for ID, as well, after Drake hadn’t shown up for several other magazine shoots and TV appearances the firm had arranged, leaving editors and execs grousing about Drake’s management team, composed of cronies from his hometown of Toronto who call themselves “October’s Very Own.”
“It’s a shame that someone with so much talent is surrounded by kids who are burning bridges left and right,” a source told us.
ID also reps Alicia Keys and Ben Stiller.
We also hear Drake had an ugly split with another firm, The Chamber Group, after he got into a screaming match with a female publicist and ordered her out an elevator they were riding in at New York’s London/NYC Hotel.
Drake needs to really calm down. He’s acting like his success can’t be taken away.
I believe it. I like Drake but he is a queen. lol
Drake better get it together. One of the main things that will get you blacklisted in the business is a bad reputation.
LOL this is totally believable.
It sure is.
I am not surprised. Drake has shown people on numerous occasions that he can be a real douche. I do hope he wakes up one day and realizes he’s only hurting himself.
By the looks of this it sounds like Drake is burning bridges and people are getting sick of his behavior. He better be careful. You can be on top on day and forgotten about the next. It happens all the time.
Sounds about right.
Wow. Arrogance will bring successful people down faster than anything else.
The issue is Drake surrounds himself with only his childhood friends and yes men. None of those people will tell him about himself so he just gets worse and worse. He needs someone to sit him down and tell him how nasty his attitude is.
Kanye and Drake both need to sit down somewhere and humble themselves. They cry too much for me.
