Earlier today, Drake’s dad Dennis Graham appeared on Power 106’s Close Conversations show with Nick Cannon where he spoke on the truthfulness of some of his son’s lyrics.
Drizzy has always been upfront about the relationship with his parents, and the divorce he endured when he was younger. He’s addressed it in numerous songs, and has also opened up a bit about it during interviews. But, despite that, Dennis Graham told Cannon that he’s never been absent from Drake’s life, and that lyrics were exaggerated for the purpose of selling records.
“I have always been with Drake. I said, ‘Drake why are you saying all of this different stuff about me, man? This is not cool.’ And he goes ‘Dad, it sells records.'”
And this isn’t the first time he’s made the claim. Back in June on ItsTheReal’s A Waste of Time podcast, Graham revealed that he asked his son to stop portraying him in a negative way, to which Drake replied: “Just go with the flow. This shit sells records.” Click here for the full interview.
But Drake has already addressed his father’s claims, and took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the subject:
“Woke up today so hurt man. 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 … every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
