Drake is doing some explaining after Pusha T bodied him in his lastest diss, "The Story of Adidon." Find out why Drizzy did the blackface photoshoot, plus deets on the Young Money rapper allegedly taking care of his alleged baby mama/porn star Sophie Brussaux and their alleged child inside...
We've been waiting for Drake to respond since Pusha T dropped his diss track "The Story of Adidon." Pusha T went ALL the way there on the track, accusing Drizzy of being a deadbeat dad to his secret son, not being black enough to grow an afro, and clowned him for posing in blackface for a photoshoot, amongst other things.
Now, Drake is speaking out, but he's only addressing one of King Push's allegations.

That blackface photo, taken by photographer David Leyes, went viral once Pusha T released it with the release of his diss track. Some people are up in arms that Drake would pose in blackface, but maybe they'll change their tune after they read his explanation behind the photo.
According to the former "Degrassi" actor, the picture was taken to represent how African Americans were wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.
"I know everyone is enjoying the circus but I want to clarify this image in question," Drake wrote in Notes memo posted to his Instagram Stories. By the way, folks are mad at him for explaining in a Notes memo, but folks were definitely asking him to explain, so here we are.
"This 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," he continued.
"The photos represent how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment. Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig who is also an actor from Sudan were attempting to use our voice 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 has not changed much."
Pusha reignited their beef from 2012 when he fired a shot at the "Nice For What" rapper on his track "Infrared," a cut from his recently released album, Daytona. Then, Drizzy popped back in "Duppy Freestyle" where he clowned Pusha for rapping about a life of selling drugs that Pusha never lived. And that's when Pusha dropped "The Story of Adidon." By they way, Pusha said he has plenty of ammunition for Drizzy.
In "The Story of Adidion," Pusha alleges Drake has a baby by porn star Sophie Brussaux that he hasn't been taking care of.
However, that might not be all the way true if these new reports are accurate.
According to TMZ, the "God's Plan" rapper has been supporting Sophie and their alleged baby. Sources tell the site the rapper has been dishing out cash to Sophie to make sure she and the baby are living good.
But get this...
Drake doesn't even know if the baby is actually his! It's reported he's going to take a DNA test to be sure, but he reportedly feels like the kid could be his. Remember, Sophie spoke out claiming she was pregnant with Drake's baby in May 2017. You'll recall, this was around the time he was messing with Jennifer Lopez. It's alleged Drake and JLo called it quits in February 2017 after pics of him having dinner with Sophie in Amsterdam popped up online in January 2017.
We hear Sophie moved to back to France and spends her time as a painter. Pusha did say something along the lines of Drake needing to let his son, allegedly named Adonis Graham, "come home."
TMZ sources tell the site Drake had planned on announcing his baby on his upcoming album, but he'll likely have to figure something else out now. Pusha already spilled that "Tea."
