“The Story of Adidon” is Pusha-T’s response to Drake’s diss track “Duppy Freestyle.” Inspired by the title, and borrowing the instrumental from JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.,” Pusha sets aside topics of his beef with Drake so far, and instead focuses on Drake’s character and personal relationships.
He claims Drake had a baby with a pornstar, allegedly called “Adonis”, which also lends the track its name – a portmanteau of “Adonis” and “Adidas”. Pusha also attacks Drake’s close associates like his mother Sandi Graham, father Dennis, label-boss Birdman and OVO producer Noah “40” Shebib.
The song’s artwork is a picture of Drake in blackface and was taken by photographer David Leyes, which previously appeared on Leyes’s website in his gallery. The portraits were removed as of the 30th of May 2018, however the portrait chosen for the album cover can still be found via an archived version of the gallery page, with an additional portrait from the same shoot also archived.
Drake responded to the frenzy caused by the photo and explained the backstory in an Instagram post.
