Drake Sorry Over Rhone, Universal Motown Diss

After calling out Universal/Motown exec Sylvia Rhone on his “So Gone” mixtape and in a recent interview with Fader magazine, Drake say he’s sorry for “futhering the negativity”. “I can definitely say for me, for furthering the negativity, I can definitely say I apologize,” Drake told MTV News. “I don’t know her personally to discredit her character. It’s not the right thing to do.” Tension at Universal Motown seemed to have reached its peak earlier this week, when Billboard suggested that Universal Motown execs had put their foot down demanding that Drake’s album be stamped with the Motown logo — something Drake said Rhone insisted upon making happen despite his belief that his deal was strictly a Universal Republic effort. Nonetheless, the rising entertainer says he could have handled things a bit better. “I was looking for an opportunity recently to apologize for how vicious I’ve been,” he said. “Not to say I negate my feelings — I still feel strongly about it. But I’m a person that usually handles things with much more tact.”
