Days after Young Money’s Drake teased concertgoers with his “Worst Behaviour” music video, the platinum-selling rap star has officially premiered the must-watch video.
Unlike most music videos, Drizzy’s newest visual is just over ten minutes in length.
Drake’s Nothing Was the Same highlight “Worst Behaviour” now has a music video, which was shot in Memphis. It was directed by Drizzy himself along with Director X, who was also behind the immortal “HYFR” video. The 10-minute video opens with imagery from Willie Mitchell‘s Royal Studios (Drake is related to Mitchell). It features a cameo from Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, who lip-syncs the lyrics. Halfway through we get an extended, acted skit, featuring Juicy J and Project Pat and one of Drake’s Toronto pals from the “HYFR” video, who appears in an OVO owl suit. At the end, we get a snippet of what may be a forthcoming video for “From Time”. (Pitchfork)
A few days ago, Drizzy showed off his Dennis Graham-featured “Worst Behaviour” music video to select fans during a concert.
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)
Recently, 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”)
