Drake and 21 Savage ordered to stop promoting fake ‘Vogue’ cover


A federal judge issued a restraining order against rappers Drake and 21 Savage preventing them from using a fake Vogue cover to promote their new album Her Loss, days after the magazine’s publisher Condé Nast sued them for up to $4 million for copyright infringement.

To promote Her Loss, which was released Friday, Drake and 21 Savage embarked on a fake press tour. In addition to creating a fake Vogue issue with themselves on the cover, they also released a fake interview with Howard Stern and conducted a fake “Tiny Desk Concert” with NPR. Stern commended the rappers for how real the interview seemed, and NPR invited them to perform on the video concert series for real. Condé Nast filed suit against them on Monday.
