Drake is keeping the family close. The rapper’s father, Dennis Graham, just took "cool dad" to a new level by announcing that he is dropping an R&B album, led by his first single "Kinda Crazy."

"I want all my family and friends to check out my single and video which will be debuting on TMZ tomorrow it's here @applemusic thanks to everyone who made it possible," wrote @therealdennisg on Instagram. 

 

"Kinda Crazy," a collaboration with Jimmy Iovine’s son, Jamie Iovine, is dripping in '80s R&B vibes. The video, teased on TMZ, features Graham rocking an all-white ensemble and OVO chain while sitting pretty in a throne-like chair.

Graham is no newb to the music industry. Outside of being the 6 God's dad and a social media star, he was a former drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis. He also starred in the video for “Drake’s Dad” by rock group Arkells

In a 2013 interview with XXL, Drake explained his dad's musical passions. "All he wants to do is go to Beale Street in Memphis and play music," he said. "He’s rediscovered his passion for music and for being a musician.”

While a Dennis featuring Drake collaboration has yet to be confirmed, it wouldn’t be surprising if Drake blessed the album with a few bars. "Kinda Crazy" serves as the title track of his upcoming album.
