Young Money star Drake proved he truly is for the people after refusing to nix a Texas concert despite suffering from a stomach flu this week.

Reports on Drizzy's decision to fight through the flu landed online this weekend.

The rapper struggled through a show in Texas after coming down with the stomach flu. The Best I Ever Had star, who is currently on tour in the U.S., began feeling ill this week, but refused to cancel a gig at The University of Texas (UTA) in Arlington. Drake made it through the show, but canceled a subsequent appearance at the Club Zouk venue in Dallas later that night. (ABC 4)

Following the show, Drizzy admitted he would seek medical attention.

"Seeing a doctor about this stomach flu...UTA gave me life! Sorry to all my family at Club Zouk that I won't be seeing tonight. Be back soon.," he tweeted Friday (March 2). (Drake's Twitter)

Last weekend, Drizzy was spotted with his Young Money family at the annual NBA All-Star Game in Orlando, Florida.

The stars were shining on and off the court at the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. Familiar faces filled out the front row at Orlando's Amway Center as the NBA's biggest stars faced off at Sunday's main event. Young Money MVPs Lil Wayne and Drake watched one of their own, Nicki Minaj, intro the players before the pink-haired Barb gave her boss a big wet kiss. Weezy, who predicted the West would win, smiled for a photo with Rev. Jesse Jackson and rocked a pair of million-dollar Beats by Dr. Dre headphones covered in Graff Diamonds. (Rap-Up)

Recently, Drizzy spoke on fending off criticism over his emotional-laced records.

"People calling me goth or emo or whatever is weird for me to hear because I really don't hear that in my music." Still, he has no plans to temper his emotions in his lyrics. "They want me to be more emotionally disconnected like them, so I drop the ball and fall off. That's where the backlash comes from. They want you to under-deliver so badly, and when you don't they can't handle it." (VIBE)
