Drake's Dad is Having More Fun in China Than You Are

You thought Drake was cool? Wait until you hear about his dad, Dennis Graham, and his vacation around China. Aubrey's father has quite a personality too... 

Follow @therealdennisg on Instagram, where he boasts a cool 153,000 followers, and be jealous of how much more fun he's having in China than you are.

For example, here he is in front of the Shanghai Tower. All we can say is he really does werk werk werk (Rihanna ft. Drake):


Drizzy's famous Motto is "You Only Live Once (YOLO)." Tourists to China should also be aware of the Middle Kingdom motto, which famously declares: "If you're in China, you can't not visit Beijing." Posing with double peace signs is also a must. Follow Papa G's example below (#swag):


The man really likes rock mountains. After posting six consecutive rock mountain photos, he posts another and writes, "Don't tell me I wasn't meant to be royalty cause I will do all that I can to be about it." Bonus points for artful emojis.


Papa Drake has also been spotted turning up at a Lijiang nightclub. #lifeoftheparty


So "why is he in China?" you may ask. The answer: "because he can." And also "because his girlfriend is from Kunming."


Papa Drake totally blends in with the locals. His caption: "Picnic with our Kunming family." Is that a Harbin Beer we see?


Let's also take a moment to appreciate his bold fashion sense.


So while all this is going down in China, what does Dennis G think about his son's hugely successful new album, Views? In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, Drake shared a conversation he had with his dad over Facetime. When asked about Views, the elder Graham said, "Yeah, man I love it. Man, I love it." 

But when asked what his favorite song is, Dennis G finally admitted the cold, hard truth. "Drake, man, I'm gonna be honest with you. My service is not too good out here." #chinaproblems, amirite?


No word yet on whether Drake will join in on his father's crazy China adventures, but we think that 144-hour visa could come in handy.
