The common belief among the Hip-Hop community was Drake’s Scorpion was greatly impacted by “The Story of Adidon” to the point where numerous tracks were either added or rewritten. One of which that specifically stands out is the double-disc closing track “March 14” where Drizzy speaks in depth about his son.
While many believe the song was created to finally be the reveal of fatherhood after the diss track from Pusha, T-Minus says otherwise. Talking with Rolling Stone, the producer details the song and shared that the title is a result of when it was recorded.
“I’m assuming [Drake] called the record ‘March 14′ ’cause that’s when he did the record… I never even heard the content of the song until the album dropped.” He said, “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].”
Adding to the story, Malik Yusef speaks on the record and the history of it with Kanye and Drake stating that while he wasn’t present he knows that Drake played early versions of the records in his Wyoming visit. “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],” Yusef added.
For the final touches on the story producer, J. Valle shared Drake headed to Wyoming on the date in the title of the song and ended his details with “I wonder if they heard it then?”
The most powerful of statements came again from Yusef who stated: “was it Confucius that said, ‘Often the thing whispered in the ear of your closest friend is heard 100 miles away by your greatest enemy’?”
Do you think Kanye is to blame for Drake’s child becoming public information prior to the album?
