Drake Confirms He Has a Son on His New Album Scorpion

Published

on

In the devastating diss track “The Story of Adidon” released back in May, Pusha-T accused Drake of hiding a secret son, a child allegedly named Adonis, who he claimed the Canadian rapper was about to reveal to the world as a part of an Adidas collaboration. On his brand-new double album Scorpion, which dropped late Thursday night, Drake raps about trying to protect his son from internet rumors, single parenting, and finding out he was going to be a dad despite only meeting up with his child’s mother “two times.” All of which is to say, if Drake doesn’t have a kid, this is one hell of a concept album.

“Look at the way we live/ I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid,” Drake raps on “Emotionless.” “From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate/ until you staring at your seed, you can never relate.” He continues, “Breaking news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call/ They always ask, ‘Why let the story run if it’s false? / You know a wise man once said nothing at all.”

Drake makes other references to his child throughout the album, but his experience of fatherhood is the focus of Scorpion’s final track “March 14.” Raps Drake, “Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That shit is in stone, sealed and signed / She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time / Shit, we only met two times. Two times / And both times were nothing 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.” Continues Drake, “It’s breaking my spirit / A single father, I hate when I hear it.”

On “March 14,” Drake also reveals his son’s birthday (October 11, a number the rapper got tattooed in the boy’s honor), the fact Nicki Minaj knew he had a kid and what seems to be custody issues with his child’s mother. “I got a empty crib in my empty crib / I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / Nicki must’ve brought you like 20 gifts / Your mother saying you growing so fast that they don’t really fit but, man, you know / I still had to get it for my boy tho.” Raps Drake, “Sorry, I’m venting trying to cover ground / They said in two weeks you’re supposed to come to town / Hopefully by the time you hear this, your mother and I will have come around instead of always cutting each other down / God willing / I got a good feeling.” You can stream the entire album on Apple Music now.

Freddie Gibbs, 2Chainz and Vince Staples Rock the Crowd Day 2 of Adult Swim Festival

Published

Bradford Keith

The second annual festival carried on in its raw and comedic Adult Swim style with exclusive Rick and Morty season 4 screenings, live performances of The Eric Andre Show, and artist performances by 2 Chainz, Iron Reagan, Tierra Whack, Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples and many more.

Freddie Gibbs

Prolific Gary, Indiana MC Freddie Gibbs along with his DJ and collaborator Madlib rocked the stage at Adult Swim Festival at Banc of California Stadium Saturday November 16th. Easily the afternoon’s top performance, the duo performed a grip of tracks from their latest project Bandana along with some acclaimed classics from the Piñata LP like “Thuggin” and “Harold’s”. The chemistry Gibbs and Madlib posses is unmatched and evident when they perform and it’s clear that Gibbs is a natural emcee when delivering his cocaine bars over those soulful beats.

2Chainz

College Park, GA Atlanta-native and Grammy award-winner 2Chainz had the crowd dialed in when he arrived on stage that night. Although 2Chainz may have been a last minute addition, after Young Thug dropped out, he brought South Atlanta style to Southern Cali. Performing hits like “I’m Different” and “Birthday Song” from his Based on a T.R.U. Story album along with verses from hits like “Big Bank”and “No Problem” his dynamic presence on stage commanded the audience’s attention. Along with his live band and T.R.U. artists, 2Chainz burst onto the scene and displayed precision in his musical prowess and a tireless work ethic. In the image of James Brown, “the hardest working man in show business”, he immediately flew out to Vegas’ Drais Nightclub for another performance as soon as his set wrapped up.

Vince Staples

Northside Long Beach’s own, Vince Staples was the last hip-hop artist of the night and did not disappoint. Coming out to a large cloud of haze, Staples’ hour-long set was complete with heavy bass, low lights and a few mosh pits. He performed some of his most popular hits from the latest album FM, like “Fun” and “Relay” along with “Big Fish” and “Norf, Norf” which had the crowd in a frenzy during his set. The young emcee held his own on stage and displayed a true representation of California confidence and style when delivering his lively verses.
