Drake debuted images of his son for the first time on Monday in a rare family appreciation post amid national quarantine measures set in place due to COVID-19.
The Grammy-award winning rapper revealed photos of his family on social media including his son, Adonis, and the child’s mother and his parents.
Fans of the 6-God were introduced to his son, however, in an unconventional way. During a rap-beef with Virginia rapper, Pusha T, Drake’s then-new dad status was announced by his current nemesis.
A messy back-and-forth between the two on wax came with personal jabs. “The Story Of Adidon” the diss record by Pusha T against Drake plainly, but powerfully stated, “You are hiding a child, let that boy come home” and went on to rap, “Adonis is your son, and he deserves more than an Adidas press run.” And from that moment, the secret was out.
Smoke may remain in the air between the two artists but both have officially moved on musically. Although the infamous verse dropped two years ago, Drake remained adamant about hiding the world from his child. The heartwarming post includes a lengthy caption detailing how he misses his family.
