Drake Addresses Feuds With Pusha-T and Kanye West, Opens Up About His Son
After Pusha-T released his scathing diss track "The Story of Adidon" this summer, revealing some of Drake's biggest secrets, Drake decided not to retaliate and remained mum on their feud. But last night (Oct. 12), Drake appeared on LeBron James and Mverick Carter's HBO show The Shop, opening up about the feud for the first time.
Drake not only shared how he feels about the diss track, but he also confirmed that he does have a son.
"I'm gonna tell you something, I knew something was gonna come up about my kid. They had to add the deadbeat dad thing to make it more appealing, which is fine. The mom and dad thing... Whatever. You don't even know my family. But wishing death upon my friend who has MS... ," divulged the rapper.
He also discussed why he chose not to release another diss track of his own that would expose Pusha-T's own secrets. "I study rap battles for a living. When you mention defenseless people who are sick in the hospital, who have passed away, I just believe that there's a price you have to pay for that. It’s over! Someone’s gonna fucking punch you in the fucking face. The shit’s done, the event’s over. I wanted to do other things. I didn’t want to further your career by rapping back to you and having this exchange," explained Drake.
He did say, however, that he make a diss track in response to "The Story of Adidon," without revealing details about it other than noting it said "terrible things." But Drake ultimately decided to put the feud to rest. "I got home, listened back to it, and I was like, ‘Man, this is not something I ever want to remembered for. This is not even a place I necessarily want to go,’" said Drake.
Drake also hinted that Kanye West was the one who shared the details about his child to Pusha-T, after learning about Drake's child while collaborating on "Lift Yourself." "“I’m in Wyoming. I play him March 14. I send him a picture of my son. I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother,” said Drake.
