Drake is in his feelings … but what else is new.
The Canadian – bred rapper took to Instagram Tuesday to address his father Dennis Graham’s claim he admitted to lying about the state of their relationship to sell records.
“Woke up today so hurt man,” Drizzy, 32, wrote. “My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him. It’s sad when family gets like this, but what can we really do [?] that’s the people we are stuck with.”
The “Nice For What” rapper continued, “every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
If you’ve been a fan of Aubrey’s for a minute then you know his songs are laced with stories about his dad not being around, being raised by a single mother, and how that effected him.
On ‘From Time’ from his breakout record ‘Nothing Was The Same’, Drake reflected on reconnecting with his father: “I’ve been dealing with my dad, speaking of lack of patience / Just me and my old man getting back to basics / We’ve been talking ‘bout the future and time that we wasted / When he put that bottle down, girl that n****a’s amazing.”
“I had a conversation with Drake about that. I have always been with Drake,” he told Cannon. “I talk to him if not every day, then every other day. We really got into a deep conversation about that. I said, ‘Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? This is not cool.’ He [said], ‘Dad, it sells records.’ OK, well, cool.”
For the record that wasn’t isn’t Dennis’ first time defending himself about how he’s been portrayed in his son’s music. Back in June he said on the “It’s The Real” podcast about meeting Drake’s mother, getting married and his relationship with Drake.
“He said dad just go with the flow, this sh*t sells records,” explained Graham when asked how he felt about Drake’s lyrics.
