Drake’s Dad — My Son Is a Rap God Because …

0428_drake_videoDrake“s dad says the hip-hop star was destined to be a mega talent even BEFORE he was born … for one very specific reason.

our sources caught up with Dennis Graham — who was once a drummer for the legendary Jerry Lewis — outside Maestro”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.

How Funny is that The Real Name of this “RAP GOD” DRAKE is actually AUBREY and also this “RAP GOD” has NEVER WON a Grammy-Award, Well, it doesn”t look like much of a “RAP GOD” to me or The-Academy-Of-Music obviously!…
