The news of Drake's hidden child as spilled on Pusha T's diss track 'Infrared'—and produced by Drake's once-friend Kanye West—shook the world in both its daring nature and its truth. Drake's son, Adonis, was a huge surprise, and one of Drake's rivals revealed the truth before Drake had the chance. But it seems there's an even darker side to this already messy story.
On the latest episode of LeBron James' HBO series 'The Shop,' the famous basketball player sat down with the Toronto rapper to get his side of the story weeks after West had shared his own play-by-play and seemingly cleared the air.
West had taken to Twitter to apologize for stepping on Drake's album release date, and for taking the song 'Lift Yourself' even though they had spoken about working on it together. West claimed, "I did not have any conversations about your child with Pusha," and tried to remove himself from having anything to do with the disrespect from Pusha T's track.
Drake's recent interview blasted that tall tale out of the water. According to him, he'd travelled to Wyoming to work on some music with West, who apparently gave him a huge speech about wanting to help him, asking Drake to be transparent by playing West his music and telling him when he was dropping his album.
Drake ended up showing West a picture of his son and playing him his song 'March 14' off his then-forthcoming album, which confessed the truth about his child. Shortly after, Pusha T's diss track was released. Coincidence? Drake thinks not.
Not only did the '6 God' feel betrayed by his confidence in West, but he felt West had manipulated him by having him work on his own music and then scheduling Pusha T's album release close to his. An ice-cold move.
