Diplo reveals he had no idea he was feuding with Drake and it may have something to do with the rapper’s son Adonis.
The Major Lazer producer recalls how his team went on a deep dive of his social media accounts earlier this year after discovering that the In My Feelings rapper had unfollowed him on Twitter and Instagram.
According to Diplo, he had no idea why Drake, 33, ‘hates’ him but he then found a now-deleted tweet which mentioned the rapper’s formerly secret son.
In an interview with The Cut, Diplo explained: ‘I can’t remember exactly what it was, but it was super funny.’
But he does remember it was a joke about Adonis joining boy band Brockhampton.
Whatever the gaff was, Diplo’s apologetic and pleaded to Drizzy: ‘Come back, dude! I miss us! I miss us!’
In 2017, the 41-year-old musician revealed that he and Drake did actually record a collaboration but it’s never seen the light of day.
‘I texted him some ideas. Every once in a while he always hits me up. We did a demo for his project that didn’t make the album, but I’m always down for Drake,’ Diplo once told The Whoolywood Shuffle.
‘He’s like one of my favourite current artists right now.’
Drake initially tried to keep Adonis, now two, under wraps but Pusha T exposed his secret during their nasty feud last year.

The Canadian rapper then confirmed the claims on his most recent album Scorpion, admitting he did father a child with model Sophie Brussaux after sleeping together twice.
We’re yet to see Adonis’ face but Drake did share a glimpse of the toddler’s leg last month on Instagram. He also gave fans a brief look inside Adonis’ second birthday party in October, with large gold balloons spelling out his name across a grand archway.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the God’s Plan rapper is ‘protective’ of Adonis and wants to keep that part of his life as private as possible.
‘[He] is so proud of his son. He just keeps things very discreet because he feels that is safest and healthiest for his son,’ a source told Hollywood Life.
‘Drake doesn’t want to broadcast any of his time with his son because he is a very protective father. He is a great father that wants his son to have as much of a normal life as possible. And he is going to continue to make sure that is the case.’
