He has been the inspiration for a lot of his son’s songs and a lot of his angst but this musician is now following his child’s lead and ready to take on the music world.

On Wednesday Drake’s father Dennis Aubrey released his first track from his upcoming debut album.

The 60 something musician does not plan to take on the rap game like his famous son, however, instead releasing a classic RNB song, Kinda Crazy.

Like son, like father: On Wednesday Drake’s father Dennis Aubrey released his first track from his upcoming debut album, Kinda Crazy

The track dropped on Apple Music and debuted on TMZ on Wednesday morning complete with a sneak peek of his sexy smoked filled music video.

For years, Dennis has been working on the song but recently got inspired to professionally record it as part of his first debut album.

Drake’s dad has also enlisted the help of some of his son’s friends to make sure his music gets to the people with TMZ reporting Dennis got Jamie Iovine to produce the album.

If Jamie’s name or last name sound familiar, it is because he is the son of music mogul Jimmy Iovine who helped Drake break all streaming records when he released Views on Apple Music.

Sexy sounds: The 60 something musician does not plan to take on the rap game like his famous son, however, with his song a classic RNB jam with a music video filled with smoke and pretty ladies.

Helping hand: Drake’s dad has also enlisted the help of some of his son’s friends to make sure his music gets to the people with TMZ reporting Dennis got Jamie Iovine (son of music mogoul Jimmy) to produce the album.

Posting a still from his music video on Instagram, Dennis thanked all those involved.

While Drake whose real name is Aubrey Graham did not get a mention, TMZ reports the rapper is very happy for his dad.

Dennis’ musical ambition did not just come out of left field, he used to play drums for iconic musician Jerry Lee Lewis and had long hoped to make a career out of music.

As Drake has often rapped about, things were not that easy however, with Dennis splitting from Drake’s mom when the rapper was just five and deciding to live in Memphis.

This coupled with some stints in prison meant he was not present in Drake’s life for a long time but they have since mended their relationship and Dennis has even had cameos on Drake’s sings and in his videos.

Drake once explained their relationship both personally and musically to XXL.

The Started From The Bottom star said: ‘My dad is a star, that’s what you have to understand… I’m living my dad’s dream. My dad wanted to be a famous singer.

‘Not to be ironic, we go through the motions of a father-son relationship. Right now, he happens to be extremely stable and content, and I take care of what I can for him.

All he wants to do is go to Beale Street in Memphis and play music. He’s rediscovered his passion for music and for being a musician.

‘Like any other family, there have been dark times… And there were records where I didn’t paint my dad as the greatest guy.

‘At the end of the day, my dad knows I love him and that he’s a great friend of mine, but as far as being a father goes, I look forward to being a better father for the children that I have.’
