Stop the Presses: When Music Stars Clash With the Media

Drake doesn't Tweet that often, but he felt he really needed to clear the air Thursday (Feb. 13) about a quote that was published in Rolling Stone magazine. The quote was a Kanye West diss, specifically about Yeezus creating the phrase "Swaghili" (not even Fabolous would say such a thing, Drizzy said), and the problem is that he said that off-the-record.
