In 2018, both Drake and Pusha T were enthralled in a heated rap battle stemming from a long-time feud that lead to Pusha-T to spill the tea on his diss track titled, The Story of Adidon regarding the birth of Drake's son, Adonis.

On the diss track, Pusha-T took several shots at the rapper's ethnicity, and his alleged ghostwriting, but it was his claims that Drake was “hiding his son” from the world caught the ear of those tuned into the beef.


In the song, Pusha-T rapped, “We talking character, let me keep with the facts/ You are hiding a child, let that boy come home, ooh/ Deadbeat m—af—a playing border patrol/ Adonis is your son/ And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that’s real.”

Since no one even knew he had a child, the claims sent fans on a social media frenzy immediately wanting to discover the mystery surrounding what his newborn son looked like and who was the mother.

Drake eventually responded to the “deadbeat dad” accusations by stating there was information he was in pursuit of and that he had intentions on making the announcement on his Scorpion album that dropped in June 2018.

In his song “Emotionless” the Take Care artist stated, “he wasn’t hiding his kind from the world, yet hiding the world from his kid.”

The rapper added a bit of encouragement in his caption to help people continue to stay positive.

“Be conscious, especially right now of fears coming in from others, and recognize that not everything should be held by you.”
