Drake’s father was an absentee father. Yup, you read it right. According to the lyrics of his songs, Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, was an absentee father. An absentee father is one who is missing from all the essential aspects of a growing child. They can be busy in their workload or have been out of the picture for any other factor, but this puts a different set of thoughts to the ground child’s mind.
Dennis is distressed after hearing out that his son, Drake has tagged him as an absent father and is selling his records by making up non-existent things. Dennis attended the Power 106’s Nick Cannon Mornings Radio show, where he revealed that his son is making up these speculations so that the records would sell.
Drake’s father Graham told on the radio show, “I always been with Drake. I talk to him, if not every day, then every other day. We got into a deep conversation about that. I said, ‘Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? Man, this is not cool.” The reply of Drake was one to be remembered too. He said, “Dad, it sells records.” Graham replied to this notion, “Ok, well, cool.”
Drake’s song has been known for defining a special bond with his women and his family. On the song that was recorded by him, “Look, What you have done,” the lyricists portrayed about the relationship of him with his father and how he was not there when he needed him the most.
Drake uploaded an Instagram story on his account, telling about his feelings after he came to know about his father’s statement for his son. “Woke up today, so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone willing to listen to him,” he said. “It’s sad when the family gets like this, but what can we 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,” Drake concluded.
