Well, we can throw out all that speculation about Drake knocking up a French porn star last year, because via several songs on his new album, Scorpion, Mr. Jimmy Brooks confirms that he DOES have a son.
I kind of figured this shit would prove to be true when he was rapping about child support on “I’m Upset”, but he goes into much greater detail about his babymama situation on other songs (and also all but confirms that he broke the bro code with The Weeknd and banged Bella Hadid).
At first, hiding his son, who, according to the album lyrics, was born in October, might seem like a shady move, but as Drake raps on the song “Emotionless”: “I wasn’t hiding my child from the world. I was hiding the world from my child.”
I can technically accept this logic given that the world is absolute garbage atm and if I could go raise my kids off the grid in a cabin in the woods away from the world I probs would…as long as I had Instagram.
Drake raps about his son several times on the album, talking about how he only hooked up with the boy’s mom twice and has only met his son once, and that he was embarrassed to tell his parents.
I have to give it to Drake, announcing the existence of your child on an album is great album hype. That is some Kardashian level shit and I’m starting to wonder if maybe Kris Jenner is Drake’s new manager, because this totally seems like something she’d come up with.
Sidenote: Scorpion has like 600 songs on it and is Drake’s 3781908th album in the last three years, so when exactly did he find the time to even get someone pregnant? Seems like the only has time to make album and get involved with beefs with other rappers. I’m very confused. I guess Drake is the ultimate multi-tasker.
