Yesterday, Rolling Stone teased a new Drake feature in its upcoming issue, and everyone was very pleased with Drake's thoughts about Macklemore. (This makes sense: Drake was right.) Today, someone has gotten hold of the full profile, and it turns out Drake has some opinions about other rappers — namely Kanye, and his masterwork Yeezus. The relevant quote: “There were some real questionable bars on there. Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”
