Drake Finally Addresses Blackface Photo Shoot Unearthed By Pusha T -- Canadian Rapper Left Sophie Brussaux's Baby Boy Out Of The Response
A fed-up Drake broke his silence on the Pusha T diss track, “The Story of Adidon,” where he confirmed to the world that he has a son named Adonis.
Pusha T revealed that Drake is hiding the boy he fathered with former porn star Sophie Brussaux.
For more drama, Pusha T decided to unveil the artwork for the track, which is a photo of the Canadian rapper in blackface.
In a lengthy statement, Drake explained: “This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor, and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and typecast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”

One person reacted to the message by saying: "I can take or leave Drake, but I'm really trying to understand why having a child is such a diss? I Don't get it...I get rap "beef" since LL Cool J and Kool Moe Dee days, however, this diss by my man Pusha I'm just not getting...I'll keep trying to figure out the significance I guess..."
Another commenter shared: "Pusha T has drake coming out of his lane. He isn’t a battle rapper and should have just ignored this from the beginning. He thought he was dealing with meek, but Pusha T is from the Takeover/Got Your Self-era. No holds barred lyrical rap. All of y’all fans excusing his racist behavior with this PR written statement Aubrey Graham grew up a Caucasian boy with his Caucasian mother! He’s Jewish the boy had a Bar mitzvah for crying out loud! Don't try to make us feel sorry about the L. What about the baby bruh."
A third person stated: "Now THAT makes sense. I don’t think Drake is a deadbeat I hate that people keep saying that... He doesn’t need to claim nor deny his child publicly. He shouldn’t even dignify that foolishness with a response! He’s handling his family business privately. BUT if he is gonna introduce him to the world like that that would be amazing, I really can’t wait to see what he looks like."
Drake seems to understand that he is in a complicated situation.
