Drake has spoken: the latest artful genius is Adonis Mahbed Graham.

Like most parents, the Scorpion rapper bragged about his son’s artwork on Wednesday, TMZ reports. The piece was an abstract amalgamation of blues, greens, yellows and reds.


He captioned the Instagram photo with, “Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me.”

To Drake, Adonis is the Greatest Artist Of All Time, or GAOAT. Picasso could never. Bob Ross is shaking. Michelangelo, where?!

Adonis, who was once invisible to the game until Pusha T basically put him on the Summer Jam screen, is one year old. Adonis was born to French artist and former adult-film star, Sophie Brussaux, on Oct. 11, per People.


“I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened,” Drake told LeBron James on HBO’s The Shop, per Vulture, “but I don’t have any desire for him to, like, not love his mother.” He also revealed his son has blue eyes—the better to see these colors of the wind to paint with, my dear.

Once hiding the world from his kid, Drake is now too proud of a papa to hide his kid’s art from the world.


I guess we’ll be seeing Adonis’ work in the Louvre soon. “Apeshit” redux, perhaps?
