Drake has responded to his father, Dennis Graham’s claims that he lied about their relationship. Graham previously went public saying that the rapper only said he was an absentee father to sell his records.
Graham’s revelation was made during an interview on Nick Cannon’s Power 106 radio show. Graham spoke up in reference to Drake’s songs about their relationship in his track like “Look What You’ve Done.”
“I 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? Man, this is not cool.’ He [said], ‘Dad, it sells records.’”
Now, Drake is responding to the accusation that he merely wanted to sell records. The Canadian rapper took to Instagram to address Graham’s comments.
“Woke up today so hurt man,” the 32-year-old wrote on his now-deleted Instagram Story last Tuesday. “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’re stuck with,” he added. “Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
In the media, the two seemed to have a loving father and son relationship. Graham spoke about his son with Entertainment Tonight earlier this year saying that “Love” was the greatest perk of fathering Drake. He also gushed about being a grandfather to Drake’s son.
