If you’re unfamiliar with Drake‘s dad, you’re missing out. We all know about Drake’s mom, he certainly mentions her enough and our hearts melt every time we see a picture of them together. Which other rapper shows that much love for their mom? They are too cute; but we digress. This is about Drake’s dad and his recently revived music career. That’s right. We guess if your son was a record-breaking, award-winning rapper beloved by all, you might try to use that to your advantage.
He might not have been involved in his childhood, but Dennis Graham is certainly making up for lost time with his son now. He constantly reps the OVO owl and has become a sort of celebrity just from being ‘Drake’s Dad.’ There’s even a song about him. He might actually be a little too present in his adult son’s life.

Graham left Drake and his mom when Drake was only 5 years-old to pursue a music career in Memphis. Obviously, that didn’t work out all too well because Drake is breaking records with VIEWS and his dad is, well, ‘Drake’s Dad.’ Graham took a few years off of the music scene, but now he’s back (honestly, who wouldn’t be with coattails like Drake’s to grab onto?). He’s releasing an R&B album and TMZ has an exclusive clip of its first single, ‘Kinda Crazy.’ And it’s kinda good.
We were pleasantly surprised. He’s got a Lionel Richie quality to his voice and he even looks a little like him. He doesn’t have the sweetie-pie vibe that we get from Drake but we definitely like him. Actually, a lot of people really like him. Some are even going as far as to say he’s better than Drake.
wow that Dennis Graham R&B album is gonna be straight flames

Have to be honest, Drake’s dad is a better singer than Drake himself

Now, we don’t want to get carried away and say he’s better than Drizzy, we’ve only seen a short clip, after all. But his dad seems like he has a cool oldie thing going on that might prove to be pretty interesting.
