Drake owes all his success to his mother. The Canadian recording artist and rapper, who first gained his fame on the television series Degrassi (Jimmy Brooks) reveals his mother is the most important person in his life. She helped him along with his success showing him the sensitivity in his music.
The twenty six year old gives much credit to Sandi Graham, she helped him along wit his dreams, giving inspiration to some of the lyrics on his new record ‘Nothing Was the Same’.
He told the Huffington Post:
“My mother is an incredible woman. I talk about her a lot on this album.
“She’s brought me to this point single-handedly … She’s the most important person in my life.”
He showed much appreciation when he passed over his Grammy Award to her, He added:
“It’s in her kitchen now. One day she’s going to put some shelves up in her house and start displaying some stuff.”
The musician, real name is Aubrey Graham, also goes onto say that the criticism her receives for his sensitivity is fine, it just means he’s not going off the rails.
“I’m just being me, and part of being me is being in touch with emotion. That’s all I write about. If I didn’t write about my emotions, I don’t know what else I would write about.
“I’d make songs about generic things that nobody could relate to and I probably wouldn’t be in this position that I’m in right now.”
“I’m emotional, yeah, I guess. Let that be the worst thing in my life, please, not something like drug charges and God knows what else.”
