Drake has parted ways with his publicity firm ID-PR. The Hollywood Reporter (via Billboard) reports that the rapper has fired ID-PR, who handled publicity around his Nothing Was the Same album as well as helped get him his recent profile in Rolling Stone.
Drake was publicly unhappy with the story, claiming he was misquoted, and also blasted the magazine for promising him the cover and later giving it to late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. He called the press "evil" and swore off magazine interviews in the future. Drizzy later apologized to Rolling Stone and Hoffman's family. "I apologize to anybody who took my initial comments out of context because in no way would I ever want to offend the Hoffman family or see myself as bigger than that moment," he said in a post on his website.
It's unclear what effect the Rolling Stone debacle had on Drake's decision to fire ID-PR. In a statement to Billboard, ID said, "Drake is an incredibly talented artist and we're proud of our results for Nothing Was The Same and Would You Like A Tour? We wish him the best."
UPDATE 02/27/2014 9:23PM: In the original report above, we erroneously reported that Drake fired ID-PR. ID-PR has since reached out to Complex to confirm they were not fired, but resigned from working with Drake. - Justin Davis
