Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham, has the internet going crazy with the release of his new single, “Kinda Crazy,” and the announcement of his forthcoming R&B album.
Although Papa Drake was a musician long before the 6 God, the announcement still came as a surprise to most. His musical ambition didn’t come out of left field as he used to play the drums for Jerry Lee Lewis, with a long time aspiration of having his own musical career.
Dennis enlisted the help of Jimmy Iovine’s son, Jamie Iovine, to produce the forthcoming album. Dennis also just released the single and accompanying visual for “Kinda Crazy.”
Dennis said he didn’t originally plan on putting out an album, but due to the great response he got for the clip he put out, he has to keep going. He also revealed that now that he’s somewhat “established” himself, a collaboration between him and his son could be on the way.
Drake is reportedly happy for his father and believes he’s a star! Apparently Dennis has no plans on taking on the rap game like his son. He instead wants to put out a classic R&B album. Will you be listening? What are your thoughts on “Kinda Crazy?”
Drake's dad got too much swag. He's probably his real ghost writer.
