The rapper also says both Kanye West and Pusha T manipulated him before the release of Pusha T's diss track that outed him as a father.
In the interview segment, Drake referred to himself as a "single parent," but said he still has "unconditional love" for his son's mother, adult film star Sophie Brussaux.
"I'm still learning to communicate with a woman who, you know, we've had our moments. I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don't have any desire for him to not love his mother," Drake explained.
"I don't ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible. Now, I'm just really excited to be a great father."
He said that his son maintaining a healthy relationship with his mother is foremost in his mind, and that's why he's determined to love her as well. "No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy," Drake explained.
As for his son, he's hoping to take from his own parents in how he raises him, telling James, "I'm just excited [to use] all of the things I've learned from and through my father and the incredible things I've learned through my mother about patience, about unconditional love."
He described his son as having "crazy blue eyes" and said he was "already in the pool shooting basketball," showing a picture to LeBron James, who doted over the picture as much as Drake.
The public learned about Adonis through a diss track by rapper Pusha T, but Drake lays a lot of the blame on Kanye West, who he says betrayed him. According to Drake, he met up with Kanye to record music in Wyoming, and opened up to Ye about his son. Shortly after, news about Adonis' existence broke.
Then came Pusha T's "Infrared" track, which called out Drake directly. He felt that both Kanye and Pusha had manipulated him by working with him on that very track and then scheduling the album's release close to his.
Drake previously opened up about his experiences as a father on his album, "Scorpion," and did throw a "kiss your ass goodbye" to Pusha. But he has no plans to release a full diss track, deciding it isn't worth his time.
