Drake Confirms Rumors Of Having A Son On New Album “Scorpion”
After Pusha T dropped the diss track “The Story of Adidon”, rumors started spreading about Drake fathering a child with an adult-film actress-turned-painter Sophie Brussaux.
The Canadian rapper released his new double album “Scorpion” on Friday and all but confirmed the rumours as there were a number of songs that allude to the fact that he does have a son, whose identity remains a secret.
In “Emotionless”, Drake says:
“I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.”
In “March 14th”, he says:
“I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe/That sh** is in stone, sealed and signed/ She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine.”
He adds about fatherhood:
“I’m out here on frontlines just trying to make sure I see him sometimes / It’s breaking my spirit / ‘Single father’ I hate when I hear it / I challenged my parents on every album, now I’m embarrassed to tell them I’m a co-parent / Always promised a family unit / I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”
According to TMZ, Drake has been financially supportive of Brussaux and their son since her pregnancy and even chartered a jet for them on Christmas.
