Drake 'Hurt' By Dad's Claim He Faked Their History To Sell Records
Drake said Tuesday he is “so hurt” by comments his father Dennis Graham recently made on a radio show.
“My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him,” the rap star wrote in an Instagram Story. “It’s sad when family gets like this but what can we really do that’s the people we are stuck with.”
Appearing on Nick Cannon’s Close Conversations show on Los Angeles station Power 106, Graham disputed his son’s lyrics about having a father who wasn’t always there for him.
"I have always been with Drake,” said Graham. “I said, ‘Drake why are you saying all of this different stuff about me, man? This is not cool.’ And he goes 'Dad, it sells records.’”
Drake’s parents divorced when he was just five years old and he lived with his mother Sandi in Toronto while Graham returned to his native Memphis, where he struggled with financial and legal issues.
“I took Drake down through there so to speak," Graham told Cannon. “I exposed him to every aspect of life. I never hid anything from him... I showed him this side of life. I showed him that side of life.”
In his Instagram Story, Drake fired back: “Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept.”
