Noted Art Critic Drake Compares Son's Work To Picasso
Move aside, Pablo.
Drake has announced the new saviour of the art world is none other than his one-year-old son, Adonis.
The Canadian rapper shared a finger paint on canvas masterpiece created by the small child, declaring the piece to be superior to the painter who brought us 'Guernica' and 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon'.

"Adonis > Picasso. Don't @ me" Drake wrote, sending a warning to his 50 million followers not to question his son's talent.
And if you're wondering if Drake is really in a position to be making such bold comments, please sit back and let us remind you of the rapper's art cred.
Exhibit A: He's a noted lover of American artist James Turrell.
And although Turrell went out of his way to distance himself from the popular music video clip -- the work still shows us that Drake appreciates a good art installation.
"While I am truly flattered to learn that Drake f*cks with me," wrote Turrell in 2015. "I nevertheless wish to make clear that neither I nor any of my woes was involved in any way in the making of the 'Hotline Bling' video."
Exhibit B: Drake once curated his own art exhibit
In 2015, Drake collaborated with the prestigious auction-house Southeby's to put together a special exhibition of his favourite works of art. The New York gallery show featured pieces by artists including Nick Cave, Kara Walker Jean-Michel Basquiat and Jacob Lawrence.
"I look at art and it sometimes makes me think of music or it makes me think of a moment in my life," Drake explained in a video made about the gallery show.
Exhibit C: Drake loves pop-art!
In 2017, Drake gave his Instagram followers a glimpse inside his temporary apartment in Toronto, which was FILLED with contemporary art.
"It's pretty pop art-focused, so it seems like his tastes are relatively mainstream," art consultant Devan Patel told CBC. But at least Drake knows what he likes!
Exhibit D: Sophie Brussaux is a talented artist
The mother of Drake's son is an ~artiste~ herself. Sophie is a prolific painter and creates portraits of icons like Grace Kelly, Frida Kahlo, Amy Winehouse and Madonna. Which explains where Adonis' talent originated.
So, in case you were considering @-ing Drake and arguing that his son didn't help develop the Cubist movement or complete a portrait of Gertrude Stein -- please remember that Drake is a fine art critic and knows what he's talking about.
