Terribly upset over his father Dennis Graham's claim that he lied about their relationship to "sell records," Drake took to Instagram to set the record straight.

"Woke up today so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone that's willing to listen to him," Drake wrote on his Instagram Stories. "It's sad when family gets like this, but what can we really do that's the people we are stuck with."

He clarified further that "every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept."

During his appearance on an episode of Power 106's Nick Cannon's "Close Conversations" show earlier this month, Graham revealed how he felt about Drake alleging he's an absentee father in his lyrics.

"I had a conversation with Drake about that. I always been with Drake," Graham said. "I talk to him if not every day, then every other day. We really got into a deep conversation about that. I said, 'Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? Man, this is not cool,'"

Graham went on to assert that Drake said, "Dad, it sells records."

Drake has at times referenced his dad's absence on his tracks, including "Look What You've Done" from his album Take Care.

"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," he rapped in that song.
