Drake’s Dad and Other Guests Display ‘Worst Behavior’

Rapper explores Memphis in his new 10-minute video

“Worst Behavior,” a propulsive cut from Drake’s recent Nothing Was the Same LP, now has a surreal new video. The 10-minute clip, co-directed by Director X and Drake, features appearances from rappers Juicy J and Project Pat, along with a hilarious cameo from Drake’s father, Dennis Graham.

The video, shot in Memphis, Tennessee, unfolds in a scattered, non-linear style: The opening vignette features a handful of soul musicians recording at Willie Mitchell’s legendary Royal Studios; from there, the clip cuts abruptly to Graham lip-syncing the song’s lyrics in front of a rib joint – then to an extended non-sequitur comedy skit with Juicy J, Project Pat and Drake’s friends, Ryan Silverstein and “OB” O’Brien (who is dressed in an owl costume).

Though Drake certainly gets in a few classic moments, O’Brien is the star here. His ridiculous antics include calling Project Pat “Patty Cakes,” sharing his passion for Captain D’s, passing along a rough copy of his new album (which only features “scratch vocals”) and possibly inventing the term “scrimp scampi.”

From there on, the absurdity is dialed down a notch or two: Drake takes a minute to mug in front of a local chicken shack, and his crew strolls around the downtown, where breakdancers cut loose. The last 20 seconds of the video might be a preview of an upcoming video for “From Time.”

Drake is currently on the road for a North American tour, which concludes on December 16th with a show in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
