Days after Young Money stud Drake's father, Dennis Graham, revealed he recently reunited with his son for a joint track, footage of the father-son duo in a new music video has surfaced.
According to reports, Drizzy showed off his Dennis Graham-featured "Worst Behaviour" music video to select fans this weekend.
Drake's Would You Like A Tour? tour stopped in New Orleans tonight, and the Toronto native treated the crowd to a special rendition of "Worst Behaviour." While most audiences have been treated to Drake performing the song himself, tonight, he played the crowd the music video itself on a giant screen. The video was shot in Memphis, and from what can be seen in Instagram videos, Drake's father, Dennis Graham, is a prominent figure (along with his incredible mustache). Turk, Juicy J, and Project Pat have also made cameos in the video, which was directed by X. With the video available for preview, it is likely to come out soon, within the coming days. Memphis, of course, is Dennis Graham's hometown, and a place where Drake would spend time during his childhood. (Complex)
A few days ago, Drizzy's pops broke the news of their recent reunion.
Drake has worked with everyone from Jay Z to Lenny Kravitz, but for his next collaboration, he's keeping it in the family. The Canadian rapper has recorded a song with his father. TMZ recently caught up with Drake's pops Dennis Graham on the streets and asked him if he and his famous son had made music together. "I have! We just did a song together," he told the cameraman. Graham was the drummer for rock star Jerry Lee Lewis and taught Drizzy how to play piano when he was young. (Rap-Up)
Over the summer, some throwback footage of Drizzy speaking on his dad surfaced online.
"This is my dad, him and my uncle worked with Al Green. That's basically why I do it. He taught me everything. So, thank you dad, I don't get to see you that often but my love is always with you. ... I'm a music fanatic, so, I got some Fab, some Marvin Gaye, Kanye West, Big L, Jay-Z, all the Jay-Z albums, I don't know, we could go on for days." ("Degrassi: Unscripted")
Recently, the rap star dished on their distanced relationship and how often they link up.
"Me and my dad are friends. We're cool. I'll never be disappointed again, because I don't expect anything anymore from him. I just let him exist, and that's how we get along. We laugh. We have drinks together." (GQ)
