Rapper Drake claimed yesterday that he was "done" doing interviews for magazines, but it appears he is now back-tracking.

He was supposed to be on the cover of Rolling Stone, but the magazine decided at the last minute to honor the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover instead.

That apparently hurt Drake's ego, the Associated Press reported.

Drake tweeted that he was "disgusted" by the magazine's decision and he was finished doing magazine interviews. He also said Rolling Stone him when Kanye West came up.

Today, the 27-year-old is apologizing for lashing out, writing in his blog: "I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone" putting the actor on the cover. He calls Hoffman "legendary."

The rapper adds that he was frustrated and says Thursday was "an emotional day." He titled the post "Tough Day At The Office."

The Kanye West misquote wasn't mentioned in the blog post.

The magazine's new issue hit newsstands today.
