“And you tell me I’m just like my father…”
~”Look What You’ve Done” by Drake
Drake may be the musical connoisseur in his family, but he’s not the only one basking in the glory of R&B. Now his dad, Dennis Graham, wants to take a dip into the rhythmic waters as he starts to launch his career with his first single “Kinda Crazy.” Ya, this is all kind of crazy to me too. He’s actually really good! He’s got that Lionel Ritchie, Boyz II Men, cool 80’s sound. The OVO Rapper better step aside because the real Champagne Papi is about to steal the spotlight. But it’s ok, Drake is proud of his pops and has announced that the full-length track will be available at the end of this month.
Hypetrak noted that Graham collaborated with the song of music industry tycoon Jimmy Lovine, Jamie Lovine, who is both a producer and the CEO of Meltdown Comics to produce this song. Graham always had a musical background, hence Drake’s talent. Graham was once the drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis, way back when, so the industry is no mystery to him at all.
Courtesy of TMZ, we even get to see the magical visual created to accompany Drizzy’s dad’s track. The now 60-year old man is getting down funky donning a slick, all-white suit, knit beanie, some bling, and a sick mustache. TMZ called it out though, the only difference between the 6 God and dad is their taste in women for their music videos…LOL.
Watch a snippet of the video above, and let us know what you think of the OG Drake (Graham) taking on the world of rhythm & blues!
In other news, Drake has been keeping busy putting up pop-up shops, reigniting his love for Rihanna, and being on the road with Future for their Summer Sixteen Tour.
