In his Better Than Good Enough documentary, Drake speaks on his mother's health concerns.
Drake's mother Sandi Graham is sick, and she is his biggest fan. Drake has always had a close relationship with his mother and even took her as his date to the 2010 Grammys. Drake, born Aubrey Graham, revealed in his MTV documentary, Better Than Good Enough, that his mother suffers from a mystery illness, and he's afraid to lose her to the disease. Drake said he doesn't know what he would do without his biggest supporter. "My mom is sick. So that scares me a lot. She's been the most supportive person I've ever had in my life - the only person that loves me unconditionally, really. I know a lot of people love me and I love a lot of people. But to love somebody unconditionally is different." (Dime Wars)
Earlier this year, Drake talked about his mother supporting "Best I Ever Had."
"That song is a real honest song. It connected with a lot of women -- my moms likes it. For it to be Grammy-nominated is an honor, man. It's always good when the words in your music are something that you live by and you get to hear it every day on the radio and you're not ashamed of it. It's all moments I need to cherish and observe." (MTV)
As of late, Drake has been busy putting in studio time.
I've been working all night," an exhausted Drizzy told "Extra" on Tuesday. "I've just been in the studio. I was actually in the studio with Chris Brown for a little bit. Then I was studio hopping, seeing where I can lend my hand since I've done mine." (Rap-Up)
