Drake's father is preparing to relaunch his career as a musician by calling for a "classy female rapper" to collaborate with.

Dennis Graham previously enjoyed success as a drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis back in the 1960s and now he is keen to take centre stage and get back into the studio to record a comeback song.

However, instead of making use of his famous son's connections in the music industry, Graham has taken to his Instagram.com page to find someone to feature on his new track.

Alongside a photo of himself, the veteran artist writes, "I am in search of a classy female rapper to collaborate with me on my new single. Not looking for ghetto style rapper serious inquiries only please Dm (direct message) me".

Graham has become a familiar face to Drake's fans after joining his son on tour and appearing in his music video for Worst Behaviour. Father and son also teamed up for the recent song Heat of the Moment.
