However, while his last name may be Graham, just like Drake's, that information can not be confirmed. "You are hiding a child, let that boy come home/ Deadbeat m********** playin' border patrol, ooh", the rapper from Virginia spits.

The rap side kicks off with "Survival". And Drake makes it clear: The kid is his.

The song "Emotionless", which brilliantly samples Mariah Carey's hit "Emotions", is perhaps the most direct defense of why he kept his child a secret for so long.

"I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / Your mother say you growing so fast that they don't even really fit / But man, you know, I still had to get it for my boy though, you know", Drake raps. "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 coparent".

Through the lyrics, he reveals that he met his son once on Christmas Day. One of the artists to feature on the album is none other than JAY-Z, who had a verse on "Talk Up". There are some lyrical high points, though. The question rings most strongly on "Is There More", which throws his corporate deals and an endless parade of women into focus to ask, "Am I missin' somethin' that's more important to find?" And on "Can't Take a Joke", Champagne Papi tackles life as a celebrity on Instagram: "Back and forth to Italy / My comment section killin' me". We'll see if Scorpion can get close to that.

"I think that the diss had an effect on him personally and as an artist", said Scott, who said the song wouldn't put a dent in Drake's professional career. Here he reflects upon his own upbringing ― Drake was raised by a single mother named Sandi ― and refers to himself as a "single father".

But the biggest bombshell dropped in the song is where Drake confirms he does have a son, bringing Pusha-T's words to the forefront and explaining his choice in doing so.

A dreamy mid-tempo R&B track driven by a synthesized bass, "Don't Matter To Me" is in line with the late output of Jackson whose distinct voice is heard on the chorus. Drake's reply - well, lack thereof, marked a low for the rapper-singer, who had surprised music fans when won his rap beef with Meek Mill in 2015.
