Drake's father says son raps about him being an absentee dad just to sell records

Dennis Graham, father of rapper, Drake, has come out to say the lyrics in his son's songs about him being an absentee dad was all lies to sell record.

Drake had in some occasion rapped about his father being a deadbeat dad and the old man never responded to his claims.

On his Take Care song "Look What You've Done," Drake rapped about his father allegedly not paying child support and thus not being in his life at times.
"And my father living in Memphis now, he can't come this way/Over some minor charges and child support/That just wasn't paid, damn/Boo-hoo, sad story—Black American dad story," Drake raps on the 2011 track.
 However, in a chat with Nick Cannon on Power 106's Mornings radio show over the weekend, Graham was asked about his strained relationship with son.

In response, Graham said Drake had been making these claims to help his own record sales.
"I had a conversation with Drake about that," Graham said. "I have always been with Drake. I talked to him if not every day, every other day and we really got into a deep conversation about that, 'I said Drake, why are you saying all this different stuff about me man like this is not cool'. He goes 'Dad it sells records,' and I said 'Okay well cool.'"

Drake, however, took to his Insta-story to say his father was lying.
 "My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him..Every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept," the Canadian rapper declared.
