Drake is very familiar with Jamie as he is the one responsible for releasing the artist’s fourth studio album “Views”exclusively on to Apple Music streaming service earlier this year.

You may think Dennis is only stepping into the music scene now, but he has been in the music business for quite some time. He worked as a drummer performing alongside country musician Jerry Lee Lewis.

Interestingly, the legendary Larry Graham is Dennis’ brother, making him drake’s uncle. Dennis used to take Drake to the famous Royal Studios, where the likes of Al Green recorded, when he was younger.

So, is it Drake that inspired his father into becoming an artist or the other way around? hmmmm…music runs in this family. This just proves to us, it’s never too late to begin again.

The wait for the single beings…now!
