The God's Plan artist often references his turbulent family life in his music.

For example, in his song Look What You've Done, he accuses his father of allegedly failing to pay child support.

"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."

Dennis speaks out

The mogul's father opens up in an interview on Nick Cannon's Close Conversations last Friday.

Dennis claims he spoke to his son about how he's portrayed as an absentee father in his music.

As per XXL, Dennis tells the presenter, "I have always been with Drake."
