Ryan Leslie agrees that simple celebrations are the way to a mother's heart.
"My mother is an amazing woman. She doesn't rank the impact or the value of the gift. As long as I remember to let her know that I appreciate everything that she's done in whatever way it is. If it's even as simple as a phone call, a great conversation a dinner more things of a personal nature than of a material nature. She's always very appreciative." (SOHH)
DJ Drama has a special Mother's Day gift for his Mom.
"[I'll] probably fly my Mom down to Atlanta and do something special for her. I just got a new crib and she has a very wonderful lavish room in there. It will be her first time seeing it so I'll bring her to the A." (SOHH)
