Drake, who suffered a blow after he was accused of having a son with a porn star by Pusha T in a diss track, has confirmed that the rumour is true on his new double album Scorpion, which was released just before midnight Thursday on Apple Music.
Featuring Mariah Carey in his “Emotionless” track, Drake declares “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid.”
“Breakin’ news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call,” he adds.
Addressing his relationship with his son’s mother by referencing Michael Jackson‘s hit “Billie Jean” in the song “March 14”, the Canadian said;
“She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/ Sandi used to tell me all it takes it one time, and all it took was one time/ S—, we only met two times, two times,” he raps, referring to his mom Sandi Graham.
“I used to challenge my parents on every album/ Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent/ Always promised the family unit/ I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”
Drake confirmed his son was born October 11, and says he celebrated in Miami when the DNA test confirmed he was the little boy’s father. However, Drake also reveals while he rushed out and bought a crib for his son, he has only met the boy once at Christmas time.
Aside from the big baby news, the Canadian star’s album also features JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, Future and Ty Dolla $ign. Drake also samples Jackson on the track “Don’t Matter to Me” which seems to be unreleased music for the King of Pop.
The rumour of his son made rounds, after Pusha T released a diss track called “The Story of Adidon,” in which he alleged Drake had a secret love child he was keeping under wraps and refused to acknowledge.
“You are hiding a child, let that boy come home,” Pusha raps on the track, claiming Drake is playing “border patrol.”
