Drake's dad just released his first music video and it's better than everything Drake's ever done


Drake’s OK, isn’t he? Coupla decent tunes here, coupla boring, samey songs there – but all in all, I like him. Also ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ is one of the greatest songs of all time, so props for that, always and forever.

But, erm, there’s a new kid on the block and he’s looking to muscle in on Drake’s patch. And from the strength of his first single, it looks like he’s set up a pretty solid foundation.

Oh yeah, did I mention that this young upstart is Drake’s dad? That’s probably quite important to mention: yeah, Drake Snr is now a certified recording artist. Even better, his debut track is an unbelievable stonk-house of a heffer. It is so, so good. Like, a legit, authentic, 100% no take-backs banger.

Just cop your eyes and ears on this one:


That’s Dennis Graham there, with ‘Kinda Crazy’, a top-shelf, shimmering R&B funk track, the likes of which just don’t exist anymore. Until now, of course.

And the video? He’s on a throne mate. And he’s absolutely rocking a full on white suit in a way that you would never, ever be able to do, even your own dreams would not allow it because you’re not as cool as Drake’s dad.

Dennis has been a singer for a while, and was locally famous in Houston back in the day, but this is his first “proper” track – or at least the first one on Spotify, anyway.

What a surprise, though – your Dad is very embarrassing, just imagine if he’d made a music video? Dads don’t make music videos because they end up like this:

But not Drake’s dad – he makes stone-cold jams, the likes of which your dad would sell his lawnmower to make. Ridiculous.

So I think, to sign off, I’ll leave it to the fountain of truth that is the YouTube comments section to sum up this wonderful discovery:


Yes, yes it is.
