Drake Was Reluctant To Return To Memphis For “Worst Behavior” Video


Drake may be Canadian, but he still has ties to the south. That much is clear from his recently released video for “Worst Behavior,” which was shot in Memphis, the hometown of Drake’s father, Dennis Graham. But even though Drizzy has many family members in the River City, he was hesitant to return to there for the shoot, he recently told Vibe. “if anybody knows anything about the South and how it is, it’s tough to go around people who could use your help and you can’t help everybody. It’s like a guilt or a burden that comes over me, so I hadn’t gone to Memphis in a long time,” he said in the interview. Drizzy goes on to say that while in the city shooting the video he embraced his family and helped them out in anyway he could. Now, he “can’t wait to go back,” he said. The video, which dropped earlier this week, features appearances from Drake’s dad, well as Memphis rappers Juicy J and Project Pat. [Via Vibe] Previously: Drake’s “Worst Behavior” Video
