Drake has responded to comments that his father Dennis Graham made about the rapper lying about him being an absent parent to sell more records.
Earlier this month, Denni Graham appeared on Power 106 to speak about his son Drake. The host Nick Cannon brought up some of Drake's lyrics about how Graham was an absent father. Graham replied, "I have always been with Drake, I talk to him, if not every day, every other day. And we really got into a deep conversation about that. I said, 'Drake, why are you saying all this different stuff about me, man? This is not cool.'"
Graham went on to imitate his son by saying, "Dad, it sells records." Watch from the 4:50 mark.
Yesterday (8 October), Drake posted a response to his father's comments on his Instagram Story. The rapper wrote, "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."
