Drake addressed pretty much everything we asked for.
Last night Drake released his album, Scorpion, and the rumors were right, it is a “double-sided” album with 25 tracks.

Throughout the album, specifically on Emotionless, 8 Out of 10 and March 14, Drake confirms that what Pusha-T said about him hiding a son is basically spot on.
Here are some lyrics:
Emotionless – “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.”
8 Out of 10 – “Kiss my son on the forehead, then kiss your ass goodbye.”
It all comes together on March 14:
I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe
That shit is in stone, sealed and signed
She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine
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 co-parent
Always promised the family unit
I wanted it to be different because I've been through it
But this is the harsh truth now
I got an empty crib for my empty crib
I only met you one time, introduced you to St. Nick
I think he must’ve brought you like 20 gifts
Your mother say you’re growing so fast that they don’t really fit, but man, you know
I still have to get it for my boy tho, you know
October baby for irony sake, of course
I got this 11 tatted on me, now it is yours
And believe me, I can’t wait to get 100 more
They say in two weeks you’re supposed to come in town
Hopefully by the time you hear this, you and your mother will have come around
Instead of always cutting each other down
God willing, I got a good feeling
You got a good spirit, we’ll talk more when you hear this
Drake also addressed the touchy subject involving himself and Lil Wayne’s deals with Cash Money Records on, Is There More.
“Soon as this album drop in out of the deal.”
On the intro of the album, Survival, Drizzy spits about his past beefs with Diddy and Meek Mill but the bars seemed to show that he has since moved past the beefs and has no ill will toward the two.
“I’ve had real Philly ni***s try to write my endin
Takin shots with the gold and talk about shots that we sendin’
I’ve had scuffles with bad boys that wasn’t pretendin’”
The way Drake words the bars is interesting, it seems to be somewhat of a compliment to the both of them while addressing that they indeed had beef.
Last but not least, the living legend Jay-Z made the cut on, Talk Up.
Most notedly, he touched on the murder of XXXTentacion and Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman.
“I got your President tweeting I won’t even meet with him
Yall killed X and let Zimmerman live, streets is done.”
All in all, the album did not disappoint what so ever, and I think its safe to say that Drake no long has an skeletons in his closet, or does he?
