Drake got his folks in the frame in his hometown for the first time in more than a decade over the weekend. In a rare Graham fam snap, Drake posted an image to his Instagram Story featuring his meme-tastic mustachioed dad, Dennis Graham, standing next to the rapper’s beloved mother, Sandi.
The exes were both, of course, rocking some of their son’s OVO gear, with Drake writing, “First time in over 15 years they let the OG back into Canada,” he wrote in the Story according to Complex. “Thank you to everyone that helped us out.” It was not clear at press time why Graham had not been able to cross the border for a decade and a half, but judging by the picture it was an all-smiles reunion.
Drake was born in Toronto to Canadian school teacher Sandi Sher and Memphis-bred musician Dennis Graham on Oct. 24, 1986, with the MC growing up mostly with his mother after the couple split when Drake was five-years-old. After Graham moved back to the U.S. following the divorce, Drake’s dad would drive the rapper from Toronto to Memphis with him every summer, according to People.
The exes seem to get along well, with Graham making an appearance at Sandi’s 75th birthday party last January, posting a picture of the pair posing with Drake and the rapper’s son, Adonis, with the caption, “Happy Birthday Pinky, we love you.”
Drake is about to launch his It’s All a Blur Tour: Big As The What? tour with J. Cole, which will open with the first of two dates at the Ball Arena in Denver, CO on Thursday (Jan. 18).
