Drake’s Dad Admitted His Son’s Lyrics About Him Were Made Up To Sell Records
Drake’s father Dennis Graham recently appeared on Power 106 to chop it up with Nick Cannon and give updates on his life and music career. While there, he also cleared up a few things about his relationship with his famous son.
During the interview, Cannon asked Graham about how it feels to be placed in a negative light in some of his son’s rap songs.
Despite, the rapper previously sharing that his father wasn’t really there for him, Graham said that’s absolutely not true. In fact, he said that Drake admitted to making up things about Graham in his lyrics because “it sells records.”
“I had a conversation with Drake about that,” Graham began. ” I have always been with Drake. [He] talked to him if not every day, every other day and we really got into a deep conversation about that, ‘I said Drake, why are you saying all this different stuff about me man like this is not cool’. He goes ‘Dad it sells records,’ and I said ‘Okay well cool.’”
On his Nothing Was the Same track “From Time,” Drizzy alludes to a father-son relationship on the mend.
“I’ve been dealing with my dad, speaking a 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,” He said back on his 2013 track.
On his Take Care song “Look What You’ve Done,” the Toronto rapper said his father allegedly did not pay child support and thus not being in his life at times.
Also, Drake has not publicly spoken out on his father’s latest interview.
