Drake is from Toronto but his Dad is actually from Memphis, TN. Drake used to spend his summers with his Dad in Memphis. His Father was a drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis. Drake's diversity comes from his visits to studios where legends like Al Green performed. His Father also takes claim for Drake's singing on his albums. I always thought his MOTHER was responsible for his sensitive style. Very interesting video on Drake and the thing that's even more interesting is the 70's mustache Drake's Dad is still rocking LOL.
