On the outro track “March 14,” Drake fully accepts having a son, despite not being in love with his baby’s mother, and he raps about finding out. He even compares his situation to that of his own parents, and discusses his disdain for being a “single father.”
“Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe,” he opens up with. “That shit’s in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandy used to tell me all it takes was one time and all it took was one time.”
“I’m out here on front lines just making sure I see him sometimes/ It’s breaking my spirit/ 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,” Drake spits.
