Fans Now Understand Why Drake Kept His Child Low-Key Following Art Jokes
| LAST UPDATE 06/01/2021
When Drake shared a photo of Adonis, his 3-year-old son, and his proud scribbles over what could've been a tracklist for 'Certified Lover Boy,' he was only trying to tease new music.
"They keep asking for a track list...can’t seem to get one off," Drizzy wrote in the caption. Well, the internet took things in a weirdly different direction.
"Adonis" started trending in part due to a tweet that compared Adonis' artwork with the 7-year-old daughter of one of Drake's most well-known rivals, Kanye West. Back in February, North West and her impressive landscape painting from a Kim Kardashian IG Story went viral.
Loyal fans were quick to defend Drake and Adonis from the bizarre joke. At the same time, they also gained a deeper appreciation for Drake's past attitude toward privacy and his family, reflected in 2018's "Emotionless" where he famously raps, "I wasn't hidin' my kid from the world / I was hidin' the world from my kid."
One person commented, "this the exact kinda s**t drake wanted to keep adonis away from."
Of course, Kanye is rumored to have spilled the beans about Drake's low-key son to GOOD Music artist and executive Pusha T, who then put Drizzy on blast on the diss track "The Story of Adidon."
Chatter involving Drake and Kanye is likely to continue over the next few months as the former offers more sneak peeks at his Nike x NOCTA signature sneaker, the Hot Step Air Terra.
Seen in white above, some think the alternate "Snakeskin" colorway resembles Kanye's Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 "Alien" model.
