Drake ‘so hurt’ by father’s claim he lies about relationship to sell records
Drake has responded to his father, Dennis Graham’s, claim that the rapper admitted to lying about the state of their relationship to sell records.
“Woke up today so hurt man,” Drizzy, 32, wrote on Instagram. “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.”
The “Omertà” rapper continued, “every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
The Canadian MC’s response was prompted by Graham’s recent Power 106 interview with Nick Cannon, where he told the radio host that his son admitted to fabricating details of their relationship to sell records. The Grammy-winner has rapped about Graham’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,” he 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.”
