It seems recently that amid personalised jets and endless diamond jewellery, 2019 has been a rocky year for Drake. In the latest round of controversy, Drake’s father Dennis Graham has revealed that the ‘God’s Plan’ artist lied about the man’s parenting skills, merely in a bid to sell records.
Appearing on an interview with L.A’s Power 106 Morning Show, Graham told Nick Cannon (5:18 mark), “I had a conversation with Drake about that, I have always been with Drake. I talked 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 like this is not cool’. He goes ‘Dad it sells records,’ and I said ‘Okay well cool.’”
The 32-year-old rapper has since responded to the allegations via social media, saying he is “hurt” by the comments.
“Woke up today so hurt man,” Drake wrote on Instagram. “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.”

The lyrics in question are from his 2011 track, ‘Look What You’ve Done’. “And my father living in Memphis now, he can’t come this way, over some minor charges and child support that just wasn’t paid, damn,” Drake raps in one verse.
Stay tuned for any further developments.
