Drake has confirmed — he is the father!
On Drake’s newest double album Scorpion, which was released just at midnight on Thursday, the rapper confirmed that he in fact did father a son with adult-film star Sophie Brussaux.
In “Emotionless,”Drake says, “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world/I was hidin’ the world from my kid/From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”
Drake didn’t stop there — the rapper went on to address where his relationship with the mother of his 8-month-old son stands.
“She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine/Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time/ S—, we only met two times, two times,” he raps, referencing to his mom Sandi Graham.
“Now it’s rough times, I’m out here on front lines/Just tryin’ to make sure that I see him sometimes/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 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.”
“Fairy tales are saved for the bedtime stories I tell you now/I don’t want you worry about whose house you live at/Or who loves you more or who’s not there/Who did what to who ‘fore you got here.”
Drake goes on to admit that he has only ever met his son one time, at Christmas time, since he was born on October 11th.
“I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick/I think he musta brought you like twenty gifts/Your mother say you growin’ so fast that they don’t even really fit/But man, you know/I still had to get it for my boy though.”
He goes on to say he will see his son in two weeks and is hopeful that him and Brussaux can get along this time around — confirming things have not been great between the two.
“They said that in two weeks you’re supposed to come in town/Hopefully by the time you hear this/Me and your mother will have come around/Instead of always cuttin’ each other down.”
Sources told TMZ that Drake is making sure Brussaux “lives comfortably” by quietly giving her money. The payments reportedly started late during her alleged pregnancy.
