(AllHipHop News) Drake has always made it clear that he rides for his hometown of Toronto, but the Young Money rapper also has ties to Memphis. The Tennessee city is where the Nothing Was The Same creator spent time as a kid visiting his extended family, so he decided to shoot the video for the single “Worst Behavior” in his dad’s hometown.

Drake spoke with Vibe recently about setting his visuals in The River City and reveals he had hesitations about returning to one of his early stopping grounds. It was his close family connections there that were actually a concern for him.
“If anybody knows anything about the South and how it is, it’s tough to go around people who could use your help and you can’t help everybody,” said Drake. “It’s like a guilt or a burden that comes over me, so I hadn’t gone to Memphis in a long time.”
The experience of filming the 10-minute video in Memphis with members of his family has encouraged Drake to return to the town in the future.
“Instead of running from it, I just embraced it and shot this incredible, beautiful video with my beautiful family and helped out as many people as I could while I was there,” said Drake. “Now I can’t wait to go back.”
