Famous rapper Aubrey Drake Graham, professionally known as Drake, recently showed off his cute little son Adonis displaying applaudable basketball skills.
Adonis is the rapper’s only son, born on October 11, 2017, and he shares the child with French painter and former model Sophie Brussaux.
Drake constantly shares updates of his son on social media, and one of his latest Instagram posts flaunted the budding basketball star Adonis giving off the legendary Lebron James vibes.
Drake Shares Video Of Son Adonis Showcasing Commendable Basketball Skills
The uploaded video captured a pretty spacious basketball court where the tyke ran some laps, bounced a basketball, shot, and mimicked James’ signature gesture by patting his chest twice.
The loving father remarked in the caption, “where is he getting the mannerisms from @kingjames [laughing emoji].”
The youngster looked adorable playing basketball, and Drake was pretty proud of his son’s successful shot as he could be heard saying, “That’s that man” in the background.
The post was loved by millions, while the comments section had hundreds of complimentary messages applauding the child’s balling skills.
A fan called Adonis a legend, while another named him a “future leaguer.” One wrote, “Future legend! Can’t wait till he’s dunking!!” On the other hand, another fan called the kid a perfectionist.
Notable stars like Anthony Hamilton Jr., Gerald Huston, Mark McMorris, Cassandra Steele, Michael Purdie, and Jay Pharoah also filled the comments with encouraging words.
The Blast shared that the four-time Grammy Awards recipient previously uploaded another Instagram post of his son rocking a similar hairdo, particularly cornrows with him, which The Blast shared.
They could be seen on Drake’s Instagram Story dining together; the songwriter wore a grey shirt, and his son donned a blue jumper. Furthermore, their hairstyles were identical in every way except for their hair color.

The Instagram post would not be the first time the “Toosie Slide” vocalist would show off his new hairdo, as XXL Magazine formerly shared his cornrows on Twitter.
Naturally, fans had different opinions about the music star’s hairstyle choice; while some had no problems, others criticized him and the hairdo.
A critic tweeted, “I remember back in the mid-2000s men cut their braids/cornrows etc. and was rockin a caesar cut because they said “it’s time to grow up”…so were now back to this huh.”
A supporter countered the disapproving remark saying it was Drake’s choice to do whatever he wanted as he would not be the first man of color to braid his hair.
The 35-year-old’s hairdo seemed to have been an inspiration from his son, who also had a pretty funny French tutoring session a few months ago with his dad.
At the time, the entertainment artist posted a video on his Instagram showing himself asking Adonis if he thought he would be bigger than him when he grew up. The little boy responded, saying he will.
Drake then asked his son how big he thought he would be, to which the toddler gave no immediate response but switched to a French session whereby he gave his father a thoughtful answer to his earlier question.
In Adonis’ ‘translated’ words, “When you’re older. You are all broken, and you’re going to turn back into space.” That was an unexpected reply even for the doting father.

Based on a previous report by The Blast, Drake was granted a 3-year restraining order against an alleged stalker after getting death threats from “2017 off and on to present.”
Based on the legal filings done in Los Angeles County Court last month, the “Nothing Was the Same” rapper filed for protection for himself and his family against a suspected female stalker.
The offender did not appear in court on the day of the hearing while Drake’s legal team, Larry Stein and Ashley Yeargan, represented their client in court.
The legal documents reported by the outlet also showed that the judge approved the restraining order, meaning the supposed stalker would stay away from him and his family till 2025.
She would also have to be at least 100 yards far from him or any of his family members, which the judge decided after the suspect failed to provide any explanation for her actions.
The documents also showed that the three-time Juno Awards receiver sought protection for himself, his son, his parents, and his lawyer.
