When Drake dropped his latest album Scorpion on June 29, the project came with a confession.
On the tracks “March 14” and “Emotionless,” the 6 God admits to fathering a child with Sophie Brussaux, something Pusha T accused him of on “The Story Of Adidon” diss track.
But according to Rolling Stone, “March 14” wasn’t a response to Pusha’s accusations like many assumed. A source reportedly close to Drake confirmed the track was recorded “way, way before” “The Story of Adidon.”
T-Minus, who co-produced “March 14,” also backed up that narrative.
“I’m assuming [Drake] called the record ‘March 14′ ’cause that’s when he did the record,” T-Minus said. “I never even heard the content of the song until the album dropped. It was something private; it was supposed to be kept secure. The information got out and I’m assuming that’s how Push knew [about the child].”
Kanye West collaborator Malik Yusef, who was working with West on ye in Wyoming, believes the information was leaked when Drake flew up to Jackson Hole to work with ‘Ye on the ye track “Yikes.”
“I was not there, but I do know that story: [Drake] played early versions of those songs and so on and so forth,” Yusef said. “You gotta be careful how you move, I think. Not I think, I know: You gotta be careful how you move, what you say to people, what gets out, and the whole nine [yards].”
