OVO Sound boss Drake is finally coming clean. The hip-hop star waited weeks and weeks to admit he is a father.
Drizzy relied on his new double album Scorpion song “Emotionless” to keep it 100 on having a son.
The 31-year-old rapper confirmed the long-rumored news that he fathered a child with French former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux on his new double album Scorpion, which was released just before midnight Thursday on Apple Music. In his track “Emotionless”, which samples Mariah Carey, the Canadian declares “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid.” (People)
On the song “March 14,” Drake digs deep into his personal life and reflects on becoming a dad.
“Yesterday mornin’ was crazy/I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe/That sh*t is in stone/Sealed and signed/She’s not my lover like Billie Jean/But the kid is mine/Sadie used to tell me all it takes is one time/And all it took was one time/Sh*t, we only met two times, two times/And both times were nothin’ like the new times/Now it’s rough times/I’m out here on front lines/Just tryna make sure that I see him sometimes.” (“March 14”)
The 6 God also shares his frustrations with becoming a single pop and previously wanting to make a close-knit family.
“It’s breakin’ my spirit/Single father, I hate when I hear it/I used to challenge my parents on every album/Now I’m embarrassed to tell ’em I ended up as a co-parent/Always promised a family unit/I wanted it to be different because I been through it/But this is the harsh truth now/Fairy tales are saved for the bedtime stories I tell you now.” (“March 14”)
Back in May, G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T shook up the Internet by claiming Drake secretly had a son.
At the end of May, Pusha-T had stirred up a firestorm of rumors on his Drake diss track, The Story of Adidon, in which he alleged that Drake was hiding a son from the world. (Daily Mail)
