Drake Explains Why He Debuted Son Adonis On Social Media
Rapper Drake made an appearance on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio where the rapper gave details about what it has been like being a father. He also shared how and why he revealed his son Adonis’s identity. Drake says,
“Yeah I posted those pictures it was great for me. It was great to share that with the world and it wasn’t even anything that I talked to anyone about. I just woke up one morning and decided I want to be able to post my son and share memories with my son. I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a “celebrity” that I gotta make everybody live under this blanket.
I just wanted to be myself with that, I’ve watched you [Lil Wayne] be a functioning rap father, incredible father and that gave me a lot of confidence to. You know Chainz [2 Chainz] is a great father, a lot of the guys we came up around, just being a great family man on those tours. When albums need to get done, but specifically you, just like just how you made s**t function and work and how much love the people in your life have for you and I can tell by the way your kids stare at you that the time and effort that you put in as a father. So that was really inspiring for me to know that I can keep pushing forward as a musician and be there for my son.”
As previously reported, in March Drake shared images of his son Adonis for the firs time. Prior to that post, he had never publicly shared any images. Drake said that the global pandemic of the deadly coronavirus has inspired him to spread the messages of family and togetherness as life’s most important concepts.
In the now famous post Drake wrote,
“Laughter is your best medicine, but tears can also be a powerful release. Let go of any judgment you may have around that. Remember that you are never alone, and if you need to be reminded of that ask for support and it will show up. Everything comes down to intention, and even though there are conflicting energies circling around us you must KNOW…It will rebuild. But in order for that to happen, you have to do exactly that. Trust. You have the biggest heart and that is your greatest gift. It’s impossible to always control your surroundings, but when you shift the focus to how you want to feel, everything will conspire to assist you. I love and miss my beautiful family and friends and I can’t wait for the joyful day when we are all able to reunite. Until then please keep your lights on.”
