As previously revealed, Drake has a one-year-old love child son with ex-porn actress Sophie Brussaux. The child, whom Drake finally acknowledged in a track on his current record Scorpion, was first referenced by Drake’s current arch-enemy Pusha T in a diss track. However, Drake claims it was actually Kanye West who first opened his mouth and let out a birth announcement about Drake’s kid, which led to Pusha putting Wheelchair Jimmy on blast. Drake, who says that he had told “YE” about the kid in confidence, was unappreciative of Kanye stepping in for that card you usually get in the mail with the big ugly fonts superimposed over a pic of the rough-looking newborn. US Weekly reports that Drake revealed all of this in an interview with LeBron James on HBO”s The Shop. It’s the first time he’s talked about his kid other than rapping about him.
Drake says that he had a convo with Kanye about the kid, and some issues he was having with Ms. Brussaux over him. He says he even showed Yeezus some pics of the boy. Oh, Aubrey. Anyone, from the Kardashian koven to the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, could have told Drake that telephone, telegraph, tell a Kanye – the dude doesn’t shut up about anything! Of course, he was going to Bernita Bertrell the news all over the neighborhood.
“I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother. We had a conversation,” he said. “I wake up, and all these dates are out … Then the next two days, whatever, I wake up now to this text from him, passive like, ‘Yo, I love you brother.’”
Drake says that he began seeing stories online with specific details from their conversation and knew that it was future 2020 presidential candidate (he’s running on the Irretrievably Crazy party ticket) Kanye who spilled the beans. Aside from that, Pusha T dropped a track on his album Daytona, accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter. Pusha, by the way, records for Kanye’s label G.O.O.D. Music. and “Yahndi” also produced his album.
“Then, the first album drops. And, of course, there’s a diss song toward me that you produced, that’s talking about writing?” Drake said. “I was just there with you as friends helping you, and now you’re dissing me. So I’m like, man, this is dark.”
Drake put out his own diss track, referencing his assisting Kanye on two of his songs from 2016’s Life of Pablo and got extra hissy by sending G.O.O.D Music a $100,000 invoice for “promotional assistance and career-reviving.” Next thing you know, Drake will be complaining to Alexis Carrington about the champagne being burnt.
That’s when Pusha dropped “The Story of Adidon”, a track which mentions Drake and his kid in full and suggests that Drake is a deadbeat dad.
“I knew something was going to come up about my kid, they had to add, like, the deadbeat thing to make it more appealing,” Drake said on The Shop.
Drake exhibited his displeasure by referring to Kanye flopping during a show in West’s hometown of Chicago and his song “In My Feelings” supposedly refers to Drake maybe banging Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian. Kanye later tweeted a sort of apology to him on Twitter. Because there’s nothing more personal and from-the-heart than making sure your million-plus Twitter followers know you feel bad about something.
Drake, everyone knows you don’t tell Kanye anything beyond the time and the score of the game. He probably recorded you and he’s going to use it as a sample on his next ego trip of an album. It’s surprising that he didn’t mention your love child during his freestyle crazy at the Trump luncheon.
