As Drake continues his catapult to massive success, his father has emerged with a music career of his own. In fact, Dennis Graham recently sat down with Variety to talk his brand new single, “That On That,” which he created about 10 years ago.
In the interview, Graham explained why he decided to release the song now, shared Drake’s thoughts on the song and opened up about the possibility of creating music with his son. Elsewhere in the interview, Graham also shared his opinion of the biggest headlines of the month, which ironically involved two friends of his: R. Kelly and Jussie Smollett.
“He’s a good friend of mine,” Graham said of Kelly. “I wish him the best. I hate that it’s happening to him. There’s a reason why women come out after the fact. He has my support 100%.”
Graham offered his support for Jussie as well.
“Jussie has been misunderstood,” Graham said of the claim that the “Empire” actor staged a hate crime against himself. “As a matter of fact, they know that. That story that came out about Jussie in Chicago is not true about Jussie. Jussie is a friend of mine, also. They have totally reconstructed his story.”
