Drake's Dad

My Son Is a Rap God Because ...

4/28/2012 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dennis Graham, father of DrakeDrake's dad says the hip-hop star was destined to be a mega talent even BEFORE he was born ... for one very specific reason.

TMZ caught up with Dennis Graham -- who was once a drummer for the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis -- outside Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills last night, after he broke bread with his famous son.  

We also spoke to Drake himself ... who confirmed an upcoming project with his musical dad.

Ah, Jimmy Brooks would be proud.

Reading the headline of this story, I expected to hear Drake's dad be an obnoxious jerk about how his son rules the world, but he came across as just a nice guy who's proud of his son and shared some fun memories from when he was young. Way to mislead your readers TMZ.

Rap god? Is there a way to be atheist around that whole "rap god" saying? Rap is the curse of this world
But other than that his dad looks like a chill guy, and fun to talk to :3

Drake looks like he was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. I also think he likes guys more than girls. It boggles my mind why girls freak off of him.
