‘Scorpion’ Drake: ‘I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid.’ 

The Grammy-winning artist raps a bit about his son, and about why he’s done with diss tracks

10:31 AMThree-time Grammy Award winner Drake has dropped his fifth studio album, Scorpion. The album is a double. Side A is complete with 12 songs, while side B features 13. His album has some crazy features on it — including Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Future and Ty Dolla $ign. The highly anticipated release truly had the tweets talking.

Rumors about Drake’s son were brought to bright light when Pusha T released a diss track titled “Story of Adidon.” Well, when it comes to Adonis, Drake is the father, as he confirms on the song “March 14.” The song also mentions that he is not with adult film star Sophie Brussaux, and even rhymes that they met twice.

Many have wondered why Drake did not go back at Pusha T full force with another diss track, but, as Drake addresses in the new “Survival,” he didn’t respond because it might end up with one of the artists ultimately losing his life over lyrics. I’ve been this movie a hundred times / I know where it’s headed / Realize someone gotta die when no one will dead it / N—-s gambling with their life for some content / That’s the type of lottery that could get your top picked.

Another surprise is the Jay-Z feature on the song, “Talk Up.” It appears the artists are working on their complicated relationship. Note: The Jay-Z verse was noticeably recorded recently, as the killing of XXXTentacion is mentioned: Y’all killed X and let Zimmerman live / Streets is done.
