The ongoing feud between Pusha-T and Drake led to perhaps the biggest revelation in Drake's career this week. In their continued back-and-forth of insults, Pusha-T released "The Story of Adidon" last night, a ruthless diss track which samples from Jay-Z's "The Story Of O.J." (which is, of course, a sample itself of Nina Simone's haunting "Four Women") The new track not-so-subtly suggested that the Canada-born rapper fathered a secret child with a woman named Sophie last year. People online believe that Sophie might be former exotic dancer-turned-potential painter Sophie Brussaux, though that's unconfirmed. Meanwhile, according to the new single, Drake's love child is named Adonis, which might also be the source name of Drake's forthcoming Adidas collection. Here are the much-discussed lyrics from Pusha-T's recently-unveiled new Soundcloud song.
Rumors have spread about Sophie Brussax and Drake since last year. Brussax had her son, Adonis, on October 24th, which is coincidentally the same birthday as Drake, who turned 31 that day, according to BET (via Cosmopolitan). Obviously, having the same birthday doesn't confirm anything. That's just an extreme coincidence. But it does add fuel to the fire, and it is making fans believe Pusha-T's comments have some legitimacy. Suffice to say, it seems Pusha-T has won this round.
Last year, as reported by TMZ, Sophie Brussaux hired an attorney in New York to request paternity and child support payments from Drake. She was 3-and-a-half months pregnant at the time, and she claims to have text messages proving Drake was the father of her soon-to-be born child, in which the musician requested Sophie get an abortion. They believe the child was conceived around January 20th or 21st. Drake apparently started seeing Brussaux shortly after his fizzled relationship with Jennifer Lopez.
If you wish to check out Pusha-T's "The Story of Adidon" and hear the heavily-discussed song, give it a listen.
Despite some potential evidence mounting against the "Hotline Bling" musician, there's no official confirmation that Drake fathered Sophie Brussaux's child. Of course, once more information is presented to us, we'll keep you posted on this juicy developing story. Meanwhile, away from this potential baby news and this inflamed feud, Pusha-T made notices for his newest album, Daytona, which featured controversial cover art in the form of a private photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom. Drake earned headlines for picking fights with Kendrick Perkins and by no longer being friends with Rihanna.
