The feud can be traced back to as early as 2011, but last month Pusha T aimed straight for the jugular. On a diss track “Adonis,” Pusha T referenced Drake’s alleged child by name. In the song he tells Drake: “"You are hiding a child / let that boy come home / Deadbeat mothaf*ck**, playin' border patrol, ooh/ Adonis is your son.”

Fans of the Canadian rapper eagerly awaited his response, but weeks passed with not so much as a cryptic Instagram post. It now appears that Drake was simply biding his time and waiting to release a track on his own terms.

On another song called “Out 8 or 10,” he raps “It’s not a matter of could I or should I / Kiss my son on the forehead, then kiss your a** goodbye / As luck would have it / I’ve settled into my role as the good guy.”

Perhaps the most detailed track of them all is the very last one on the album, “March 14.” On the 5-minute long song, Drake recounts how only a couple of wild nights managed changed his life. He tells fans, “Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That sh*t is in stone, sealed and signed / She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time / Sh*t, we only met two times. “
