Drake’s “In My Feelings” Video

Drake has finally released the highly anticipated video for Scorpion’s biggest single “In My Feelings,” the fifth single from the album following “God’s Plan,” “Nice For What,” “I’m Upset” and “Don’t Matter to Me.”

The video for the song that sparked the summer’s biggest dance craze and viral #InMyFeelingsChallenge stars La La Anthony as Drizzy’s love interest Kiki, Phylicia Rashad as Kiki’s overprotective mother, and Instagram Shiggy—who helped propel the song to #1 by starting the #InMyFeelingsChallenge—as an annoying, loud-mouthed Production Assistant. It also features cameos from Yung Miami of the City Girls, New Orleans rapper Capito and Big Freedia.

WATCH HERE:

The visual begins with Drake, with a gold grill in his mouth, standing outside of Kiki’s window after she ignores his texts. “I’m trying to tell you, I love you, girl, for real,” he says using a terrible New Orleans accent before her mother (Phylicia Rashad) shows up and tries to get him to go away. From there, the 6 God takes over New Orleans as girls perform the “In My Feelings” Challenge all over the place.

At the end of the video, Drake wakes up in his production trailer, where he reveals it was all a dream. “I just had some dream that I made some song about some girl,” he explains to his friend CJ. “I was from New Orleans, grill in my mouth. And then this kid from New York that spits when he talks all the time did some dance to it. And then the world did the dance, and Will Smith was there. Nobody would stop. It was terrible.”

The video ends with viral videos of celebrities doing the dance, including DJ Khaled, Odell Beckham Jr., Will Smith, Lil Duval, Leslie Jones, Ciara & Russell Wilson, Millie Bobby Brown, Shiggy, and more.

Welp, Here They Are! The FIRST PHOTOS of Drake’s Newborn Son Adonis!

Newly released photos show Drake’s infant son Adonis.

Thanks to the release of Drake’s latest album Scorpion, the mystery behind whether Drake was hiding a child has officially been solved. In not just one, not two, but THREE songs from the project, Drake confirms that yes, he IS the father of Baby Adonis, and even though he doesn’t outright mention neither Adonis nor his former porn star baby mama Sophie Brussaux’s name, we know exactly who he’s talking about.

In “Emotionless”—a song featured on the “A Side” of Scorpion, Drake raps, “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world/I was hidin’ the world from my kid/From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”

He adds, “Breakin’ news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call/They always ask, ‘Why let the story run if it’s false?’ You know a wise man once said nothin’ at all.”

Drake is basically saying that by not revealing that he has a son, he was protecting Adonis from the scrutiny from the world that comes along with being the lovechild of the biggest rapper alive. He also explains why he never confirmed set the record straight on the reports that he denied the child and was a deadbeat father, which were perpetuated by Pusha T’s “Story of Adidon” diss track.

Drizzy also addresses his relationship with his now 8-month-old son Adonis’ mother by referencing Michael Jackson’s hit “Billie Jean” in the song “March 14″—which is the last track on the album and is featured on the “B Side.”

“She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine / Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time / Sh**, we only met two times, two times,” he raps. Here, he’s saying that his mother, Sandi Graham, warned him that it only took one instance of unprotected sex to make a baby, and in his case, it was two.

He continues, “Now it’s rough times, I’m out here on front lines / Just tryin’ to make sure that I see him sometimes / It’s breakin’ my spirit / Single father, I hate when I hear it / I used to challenge my parents on every album / Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent / Always promised the family unit / I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”

Drake’s saying that he always wanted to have a family, but because he grew up in a single-parent household, he’s never wanted that for his children. Instead, he wanted to do things the so-called “right way” by fathering children with his wife. He also talks about how his busy schedule doesn’t allow him to see his son as much as he would like.

On “March 14,” Drake confirms that Adonis was born on October 11th, just two weeks before his own birthday on October 24th, and he says he celebrated in Miami when the DNA test confirmed that he was the boy’s father on March 14th, hence the track’s title.

Drake also reveals that he while he rushed out and bought a crib for his son, he’s only met him once at Christmas time, confirming reports that he flew Adonis and Sophia out via private jet for the Holidays last year. “I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / I think he musta brought you like 20 gifts / Your mother say you growin’ so fast that they don’t even really fit / But man, you know / I still had to get it for my boy though.”

The rapper goes on to say that he’s looking forward to another visit and he hopes that his relationship with Sophie improves: “They said that in two weeks you’re supposed to come in town / Hopefully by the time you hear this / Me and your mother will have come around/Instead of always cuttin’ each other down.”

Drake addresses the topic for a third time on the track “8 Out of 10,” which is also what fans believe is a direct response to the Pusha T diss track: “The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to,”he raps, followed by “Never a matter of ‘could I?’ or ‘should I?’ / Kiss my son on the forehead then kiss your ass goodbye.”

The song concludes with audio from a viral Plies video in which the rapper talks about refusing to argue with people: “I can’t argue wit you. You mad … I don’t get paid to argue with you… who is you? You ain’t nobody. You mad!”

Who knows whether Drake would have even mentioned Adonis if Pusha T hadn’t forced his hand, but the good thing is that Drake is definitely stepping up and at least trying to be a father to the kid.

That being said, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the child. Hell, we don’t even know if his name is really Adonis, but thanks to some new photos shared online, we do have a first glimpse at what Drake’s firstborn looks like.

Though Sophie has declined to show off her child to the rest of the world, the internet will always internet and pull out those receipts. The photos posted here don’t reveal a whole lot, but it’s the only real first look we have of Adonis and shows more of his face than the original photos Sophie posted on her Instagram.

It looks like these photos were taken shortly after Sophie gave birth, as she can be seen wearing a hospital bracelet in one of the pics. Adonis is now 8 months old and probably looks very different.

Check out the pics below:

JAY-Z Wonders Why XXXTentacion Was Killed & George Zimmerman Wasn’t in New Drake Collab “Talk Up”

According to JAY-Z, when a group of masked men shot and killed rapper XXXTentacion last week in Florida, they got the wrong guy. It should have been George Zimmerman, JAY-Z raps in a new song with Drake on the latter’s newly released album Scorpion.

Drake released his new album Scorpion last night, and social media LOVED it. Drizzy is definitely spitting bars throughout the project, but one standout line actually comes from his friendly rival JAY-Z on the song “Talk Up.”

On the DJ Paul-produced track, Jay namedrops rapper XXXTentacion and Trayvon Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, wondering why the former isn’t alive and the latter still is. He also mentions how he’ll never sit down with that orange motherf***er who’s currently the POTUS.

“I got your president tweeting / I won’t even met with him / Y’all killed X and let Zimmerman live, Streets is done,” JAY-Z raps, referencing how XXXTentacion was killed in broad daylight by his own people, while Zimmerman, who unjustly killed a young black boy, is able to while around here free as a bird and bragging about how he basically got away with murder in between run-ins with the law.

The line was such a big hit with social media that the name “Zimmerman” was a trending topic for a few hours:

This wouldn’t be the first time Hov has mentioned George Zimmerman either. After Zimmerman threatened to “beat” the Brooklyn rapper back in 2017, Jay responded on “Top Off,” featuring his wife Beyoncé, Future and DJ Khaled.

He rapped on the single, released back in March, “Meanwhile Georgie Porgie sinnin’ and sendin’ me threats Save your breath, you couldn’t beat a flight of steps / Try that sh** with a grown man / I’ll kill that f***boy with my own hand.”

Drake Already Took DNA Test & Flew “Secret” Son Adonis Out on Private Jet for Christmas (Report)

Drake has met his rumored son Adonis “multiple times” AND has already taken a DNA test proving that he’s the boy’s father, according to a new report from TMZ, which totally contradict Pusha T’s “deadbeat” dad claims.

Days ago, a report from TMZ emerged quoting sources close to Drake, saying that the rapper was financially supporting the baby, who was born on October 24th, 2017 (ironically Drake’s own birthday), while he awaits a paternity test.

However, a new report from the gossip site claims that friends of Drake’s alleged former porn star baby mama Sophie Brussaux say that Drake has already taken the DNA test, which confirmed that he is, indeed, the father of the 7-month-old baby.

Sources connected to Sophie tell TMZ … Drizzy wasn’t present when she gave birth, but he’s been actively involved since a paternity test confirmed he’s the father.

Our Drake sources say no paternity test has been taken yet … but Sophie has a different story. We’re told Drake met his alleged son, Adonis, shortly after the test and has seen him multiple times.

TMZ’s sources add that Drake has flown Sophie and Adonis to be with him, and the Grammy-winning rapper even charted a private jet for his son and baby mama on Christmas. See the photo below, taken on Christmas Eve, for proof:

Pusha T accused Drake of being a deadbeat dad in his diss track against the Candian rapper called “The Story of Adidon,” but if these TMZ reports are true, it sounds like he’s doing his part as a father … he just hasn’t publicly acknowledged the kid yet.

Drake Has Been Sending Money to Sophie Brussaux Since Adonis’ Birth (Report)

In Pusha T’s scathing Drake diss track “The Story of Adidon,” the former accused the latter of being a “deadbeat dad” (or, in his words, a “deadbeat mothaf**ka”). But a new report from TMZ says those deadbeat allegations couldn’t be further from the truth.

According to sources close to Drake, Sophie Brussaux—the woman Pusha T says Drake has a secret son named Adonis with—lives a pretty comfortable lifestyle, thanks to the money Drake regularly sends to her.

In fact, Drake has not only been financially supporting Sophie since she gave birth to Adonis, but he was also taking care of her before she had the baby.

TMZ’s report continues:

Our sources say Drake plans to take a DNA test to figure out any possible future legalities, but he feels there’s a slight chance the kid is his.

And get this — sources working on Drake’s new album tell us he planned to reveal everything about his new son on his upcoming album — a plan that will obviously need some tweaking.

As we previously reported, in addition to the “deadbeat dad” claims, Pusha T’s diss track against Drake called the Canadian rapper out for being biracial, talked about his absentee father, and even threw a shot at his best friend and longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib, who is currently battling a disease called Multiple sclerosis (also known as “MS”). The artwork for the track featured a photo of Drake in blackface, which Pusha T confirmed was the real deal.

While Drake has since responded to the controversial blackface photo, he has yet to respond to the actual diss track, something the whole world is waiting on at this point.

Pusha T Tells Breakfast Club He Has No Regrets About Drake Diss Track and “There’s More Content” If Needed

Pusha T was playing no games with Drake when he released his brutal diss track “The Story of Adidon” Tuesday night (May 29). The rapper called into The Breakfast Club Wednesday morning and said he has no regrets going in on Drake and that he has more ammunition if needed.

Pusha spoke with Charlamagne, Angela Yee and DJ Envy early this morning (May 30) via phone to talk about “The Story of Adidon.” Pusha TEA went Ether-esque on Drake, spitting about his single mother, absentee father, and alleged secret baby with porn star Sophie Brussaux. And let’s not forget about the track’s shocking cover featuring Drake in blackface.

He told the radio hosts:

“I definitely didn’t go too far with anything, I’m here for the sport of it but when it gets personal, it gets personal. I’m not censoring myself but there’s more content if it’s needed later.”

LISTEN TO THE FULL 8-MINUTE INTERVIEW HERE:

The Bronx rapper dropped the diss after Drake mentioned Pusha fiancée’s name in Drake’s “Infrared” (a song from Pusha’s new album) response track, “Duppy Freestyle,” last week.

So, Push says “all bets are off” and titled his latest diss after Drake’s upcoming Adidas clothing line, Adidon. Push claims Drake was going to use the line to finally publicly acknowledge his son with Brussaux, whose name, Adonis, allegedly inspired the Adidas brand.

Charlamagne admitted that Push is up 2-1 and winning this rap battle. Drake hasn’t released a response yet, but it may be hard to record a comeback. “Let me tell y’all like this: I don’t got no skeletons. It is what it is,” Push said.

“Yeah. I’m not going to bully the situation because I think it’s bigger questions now, though, I really do. They don’t have to be answered to me but I definitely feel that they are bigger questions than the things I brought up.

“We talked about the writing or whatever, the ghostwriting allegations, alright cool, we’re off that. Now, you get to the mimicking of the black culture, the blackface. I’m not ready to excuse that. I’m not ready to excuse you talking multi-millionaire talk to me and you tucking a baby—I’m not with all of that.”

I guess we’ll all have to wait to see if the “Nice for What” rapper has anything to say in the coming days.

Rapper & Photographer David Leyes Explain Controversial Image

Drake has finally issued a statement regarding those photos of him in blackface.

The pictures, which were taken by photographer David Leyes, have been a major topic of discussion among rap fans on and offline ever since Pusha T used one of them as the cover art for his searing diss track “The Story of Adidon.”

When the song first dropped, naturally, most people thought the image was photoshopped until Pusha jumped on Twitter to let us all know it was 100% real.

The initial response to the photos came from David Leyes, who swiftly got them removed from Pusha T’s Instagram account. Leyes, a professional photographer from Drake’s hometown of Toronto, said the photos were actually Drake’s idea. He can be seen in the comments section of an Instagram post explaining the backstory: “I captured [Drake’s] idea… I’m proud to be a part of a strong statement made by a black man about the f**ked up culture he is living in.”

Now, after more than 24 hours, Drake has taken to Instagram himself to explain why he took the photos and the context behind them.

“I know everyone is enjoying the circus but I want to clarify this image in question,” Drizzy wrote. “This is was not from a clothing brand shoot or my music career. 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 type cast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”

He continued, “Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig who is also an actor from Sudan were attempting to use our [voices] to bring awareness to the issues we dealt with all the time as black actors at auditions. This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors had not changed much.”

Also, for what it’s worth, the founder of Too Black Guys—the clothing line who made the shirt Drake’s wearing in the photos—said they had nothing to do with the blackface photoshoot.

“The photo in question was not from a Too Black Guys photoshoot however it did feature clothing from Too Black Guys’ JIM CROW COUTURE/HOUSE OF CROW collection which was released in 2008,” Adrian Aitcheson told Complex.

“The collection featured several graphics that highlighted the painful and dangerous period of the Jim Crow Era. Too Black Guys has a history of representing the black experience in an unapologetic way,” Aitcheson said. “Although this was not an image from any of our photoshoots, we feel that Drake, who is a long- time friend of the brand, was brilliantly illustrating the hypocrisy of the Jim Crow Era. The subtleties of Drake, a young black man, mimicking how white men used to mimic and dehumanize black people may be lost in a rap battle but we should not be distracted from the issues that are still affecting our communities.”

Now that we have an explanation for the blackface photos, we think it’s time for Drake to explain what’s going on with that alleged son of his and release a respnse to “The Story of Adidon.”

We’re waiting…

Instagram Deleted the Drake Blackface Photo From My Page

Push T is calling out Instagram for deleting the cover of his “The Story of Adidon” Drake dis track from his page—which featured the Canadian rapper in full blackface.

Pusha’s brutal response to Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” (his own response to Pusha’s “Infrared”) has been the talk of the Internet for the past 24 hours, not only because Pusha TEA (his new nickname, lol) called Drake out for being an alleged deadbeat daddy to his alleged son Adonis, but also because the G.O.O.D. Music president found and posted a photo of a young Drake in blackface.

However, apparently, Pusha T didn’t clear usage rights for the photo with the photographer, David Leyes, so Instagram deleted it from his page, according to a post Pusha shared Wednesday night.

However, the photographer, David Leyes, did not approve Pusha T’s use of the image, and so Instagram removed it, according to a post Push put up Wednesday.

“We’ve removed or disabled access to content that you posted on Instagram because a third party reported that the content infringes or otherwise violates their rights,” IG said to Pusha. “First time this has happened to me…” Pusha wrote on IG.

The image and link to the original source are still live on Pusha’s Twitter, however.

In a now-deleted tweet, David Leyes apparently asked Pusha T’s manager Steven Victor to “get Push to take the Drake photo down asap,” but it doesn’t look like that’s going to be happening anytime soon, unless Twitter pulls an Instagram and does it themselves, of course. The picture has been removed from Leyes’ own website though.

Pusha T Fires Back at Drake Diss With “The Story of Adidon” (NEW MUSIC)

Days after Drake dropped his “Duppy Freestyle” Pusha T diss track, Pusha T has returned the favor with the release of his response to the song, his own diss track against Drizzy called “The Story of Adidon.”

Rapping over JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” beat, Pusha gets personal, calling out Drake’s parents, his biracial background, and his alleged love child with porn star Sophie Brussaux.

Here are some of the highlights:

“Your father walked away at 5, hell of a dad thing … Marriage is something that Sandy, never had, Drake / How you a winner, but she keeps coming in last place.”

“Confused, always thought you weren’t back enough / Afraid to grow it ’cause your ‘fro wouldn’t grow enough”

“Since you name dropped my fiancé, let ’em know who you chose as your Beyoncé / Sophie Knows Better, ask your baby mother / Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her.”

“A baby’s involved, it’s deeper than rap / We talkin’ character, let me keep with the facts / You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat motherfucker playing border patrol / Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an adidas press run / Love that baby, respect that girl / Forget he’s a porn star, let her be your world.”
