Drake has responded to his dad, Dennis Graham’s claim that the rapper admitted to lying about the state of their relationship just to sell records.
In a post on his IG page, Drake said:
“Woke up today so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him. It’s sad when family gets like this, but what can we really do? that’s the people we are stuck with.
Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.” His response was prompted by Graham’s recent Power 106 interview with Nick Cannon, where he said his son admitted to fabricating lies to sell records.
The Grammy-winner had rapped about his dad’s past alcoholism and being an absentee father on several occasions. “I had a conversation with Drake about that. I have always been with Drake,” Graham told Cannon.
“I talk to him if not every day, then every other day. We really got into a deep conversation about that. I said, ‘Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? This is not cool.’ He said, ‘Dad, it sells records.’ OK, well, cool,” he added.
