Drake has jokingly suggested that rappers need to prepare their Fathers Day cards for him as the holiday is fast approaching.

On Saturday (March 11), Drake posted a selfie on Instagram of him cuddled up with his longtime dog companion Diamond, who’s an Akita. Drake made sure to be subtle yet direct with his words in the corresponding caption.

“A lot of them boys you entertain wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for me so don’t forget to wish me a happy fathers day June 18th,” Drake said.

While Drake may be throwing light jabs at some of his fellow counterparts, he’s a real life father to 5-year-old Adonis Graham.

Drake hasn’t been shy about letting rappers know that he’s laser-focused on those who try to copy and repurpose his artistic abilities for their own career. He made this known on the 2013 underground classic, “Jodeci (Freestyle),” featuring J. Cole.

“26 on my third GQ cover/Your new shit sound like you do covers/Of all of my old shit, oh shit/I’m devoted to making sure that shit goes unnoticed/Swear you niggas is hopeless/I should run a clinic for niggas that think that they winning/On some coach shit, 50 Ms for a three-month road trip/I see straight through them like fish tanks with no fish in them/Drizzy still got some ’06 in him,” he raps.

On Friday (March 10), Jim Jones told Complex that Drake is the greatest rapper of all time. 

“I would say he’s the greatest of all time,” the Dipset member stated. “I would just give that to him. And I mean, there’s a lot of people from the beginning and people that invented Hip Hop, I know. But the greatest of all time, it’s a big statement, and the relevancy that he keeps showing year after year, hit after hit, record after record. Any song that he has put out has seemed to go multiple platinum. That’s never happened before in history.”

Actor Michael B. Jordan shared similar G.O.A.T. sentiments during an interview with Complex on Tuesday (March 7). He also said the Toronto rap star should be ranked higher than Hip Hop greats like 2Pac and JAY-Z. “Fight me,” he said in response to his choice alongside actor and Creed III co-star Jonathan Majors.

With so many accolades and praise, Drake previously talked about making a “graceful exit” from the rap game during a recent interview with Lil Yachty.

“I think I’m at the point now where I just wanna like — I feel like maybe we talked about this the other day. I feel like I’m kinda introducing the concept in my mind of a graceful exit,” he said.
