Drake talks a big game, but at the end of the day, he's a mama's boy!
In fact, the 26-year-old rapper gave mom Sandi Graham the Best Rap Album Grammy he won for Take Care in February 2013. "It's in her kitchen now," he said, per the Huffington Post. "One day she's going to put some shelves up in her house and start displaying some stuff."
"My mother is an incredible woman," Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, gushed. "I talk about her a lot on this album [Nothing Was The Same, released Sept. 24]. She's brought me to this point single-handedly…She's the most important person in my life."
Precious! And Drake, endearingly, isn't too caught up in hip-hop bravado to express how he feels. "I'm just being me, and part of being me is being in touch with emotion," he said. "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," he added. "I don't get myself in trouble, so if the negative feedback that I do get is the worst thing that's going to happen to me, then so be it."
Honey, no one should ever, ever criticize a handsome, talented Canadian boy who's in touch with his feelings!
