50 Cent jokes Drake's son Adonis looks exactly like his paternal grandmother: 'People don’t understand genetics'
The biggest trending entertainment news on Monday, March 30, came courtesy of the Canadian rapper Drake, who finally posted pictures of his two-year-old son, Adonis, on his Instagram account. And since most fans appeared to be confused by the adorable baby's appearance - the white kid, blue-eyed kid with curly blonde locks hardly looked like his father - 50 Cent recently pointed out that Drake's son really took after Drake's mother in terms of looks.
The news that Drake had a son was no real surprise, as he was famously outed as a father by Pusha T in the aftermath of the highly publicized feud between the two rappers that spawned several diss tracks. "Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real," rapped Pusha T in his 2018 exposé song 'The Story of Adidon'. At the time, Drake decided to be the bigger man and concede defeat. "I bowed out after realizing that the gap between us allowed him to drop a bomb on the world," Drake admitted. "I sleep well at night knowing I didn't get out-barred. I didn't get, you know, doned off by some crazy song. It was just, you know, he told the world that the biggest artist at the time has a kid that he hasn't told you about. I knew kind of, for me, it was over at that point. It wasn't even about battle rap."
But ever since then, Drake embraced his fatherhood, now that people knew about his son Adonis, whom Drake had fathered after a brief encounter with a French artist and former porn star, Sophie Brussaux. So when Drake posted pictures of Adonis on his official social media, plenty of fans and followers were offering their opinions online. One of the biggest themes that surfaced was that people were surprised that Adonis was white and had blonde curls, as going by appearances, Drake seemed to be a celebrated black rapper.
However, 50 Cent clarified things for people by posting pictures of Drake's mother on his Instagram, showing that Adonis certainly did take after his famous father's DNA. Not many people knew that Drake aka Aubrey Drake Graham was biracial, born to a white mother, Sandra "Sandi" Graham, and a black father, Dennis Graham. And 50 Cent did some of the heavy lifting for the Internet by pointing out the similarities between the grandmother and grandson. "Drake had his mom a grandbaby for real, her genes are strong. I bet she is so happy he looks like her," said 50 Cent in his social media post. You can click here to see the strong resemblance yourself.
Fans were glad that 50 Cent had taken the trouble to clarify this publicly, saying "So weird how people don’t understand genetics." Others immediately saw the resemblance between Sandra and Adonis, who both had white skin and flowing blonde curls. "He really does look like his grandmother, he’s a cute kid."
Looks like 50 Cent has done his good deed for the day by giving us a lesson in genetics 101!
