Turns out all it took for Drake to admit to being a father was a scathing diss track from Pusha-T. Yes, the 6 God has seemingly confirmed that he has a son.
Drake alludes to his child on multiple tracks on his new album Scorpion.
On "Emotionless," he raps:
I wasn't hiding my kid from the world
I was hiding 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 makes reference again to having a kid on "8 out of 10," when he says:
It's not a matter of could I or should I
Kiss my son on the forehead then kiss your ass goodbye
Drake really gets into it on "March 14," though. He starts:
Yesterday morning was crazy
I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe
That shit is in stone, sealed and signed
She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine
Then adds:
I'm out here on front lines just making sure I see him sometimes
It's breaking 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

He also references a visit he supposedly made to his child around Christmastime:
I got an empty crib in my empty crib
I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick
I think he must've brought you like twenty gifts
Your mother say you growing so fast that they don't even really fit
But you know, I still had to get it for my boy though, you know
Nevertheless, Drake admits that he and his child's mother aren't in each other's good books, rapping:

Hopefully by the time you hear this me and your mother will have come around
Instead of always cutting each other down

Drake has long been rumoured to have fathered the child of former porn star Sophie Brussaux. The pair were first spotted together in January of last year. Brussaux gave birth to a son named Adonis in October 2017, and a month later referred to Drake as a "deadbeat ass dad" on Twitter.
Of course, Pusha-T dug into the rapper for his less-than-hands-on parenting approach on "The Story of Adidon." He rapped:
Since you named dropped my fiancée
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 mothafucka playin' border patrol, ooh
Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real
Love that baby, respect that girl
Forget she's a pornstar, let her be your world
