Drake’s Dad Is the Undisputed Star of Arkells’ New Music Video

1 minute read

To most of the world, Dennis Graham is the man best known for fathering one Aubrey Drake Graham, an individual known for his distinctive dance moves, sensitive feelings and career as a rapper/actor.

However, Graham (also a musician) deserves to be a star in his own right, as evidenced by his very excellent Instagram account (where everyone from Justin Bieber to John Mayer can be spotted living it up) and most recently, by his prominent feature in a music video by Canadian band, Arkells.

The video, appropriately titled, “Drake’s Dad,” is based on an experience that band member Max Kerman had when he actually met Graham in a bar during a road trip. In an interview with Consequence of Sound, Kerman said, “Last summer I was on a road trip with my best friends through the American South and in the middle of the night, we happened to meet Drake’s dad — Dennis Graham — in a Memphis bar.”
