Drake “too busy” To Help 60 Year Old Dad Who Wants a Rap Career

Drake-and-dad-Dennis-Graham1By Angela L. Braden

Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, wants to follow in the footsteps of his hugely successful son.  The granddad, who is in his 60s, wants to be a rap artist, according to AllHipHop.com  But as of right now, Drake won’t be joining Dad in the studio to provide 16-bars on Graham’s first single.  Drake is supposedly “too busy.”

In an interview with XXL, Drake said, “I’m living my dad’s dream.  My dad wanted to be a famous singer.”

By all appearances, the Memphis-born musician is not too comfortable with Drake being the only one living his dream.  So, Graham is currently working hard in the studio to make his own life-long dream a reality.

Graham, who was an influence on Drake’s maturation as a musician, taught himself how to play drums as a child.  As an adult, he gigged in and outside of Memphis, having played with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis.

Graham, who is known for his chatty presence on Instagram, made his hip hop debut when he did a cameo appearance in Drake’s “Worst Behavior” video.  Fans fell in love with the “old man” who was obviously unafraid of the limelight.  Graham’s appearance in the video garnered him regular attention from media outlets such as TMZ and XXL.

Graham recently told TMZ that his new song, “Kinda Crazy,” will feature rapper Ze Monroe.

Drake describes his relationship with his dad as being less than great.  Drake told XXL, “There have been other interviews where I was asked about my dad and I didn’t want to talk about it. And there were records where I didn’t paint my dad as the greatest guy. At the end of the day, my dad knows I love him and that he’s a great friend of mine.”

Drake has often been criticized by hip hop fans for not having enough “street cred.”  However, Graham told XXL in a 2013 interview that each year, he used to drive his son down from Toronto to Memphis and exposed his Canadian-born son to the ghettos and music of Memphis.  Graham said that there’s no doubt that the summer trips to Memphis influenced his son’s musical appreciation and creativity.
