Drake might be one of the wealthiest and most famous rappers alive right now, but that doesn't blind him from what he knows is the most important factor in his life: his family.

Champagne Papi rang in his 30th birthday on Sunday night partying with the rich and the famous—including Taylor Swift, John Mayer and Katy Perry—popping bottles and making toasts, but he decided to spend his actual birthday with his No. 1 lady, his mama (can you say precious?!).

E! News learned Drake, Sandi Graham and a group of close friends and family members hit up Nobu in Malibu on Monday night, taking in the ocean views while enjoying sushi for his milestone birthday.

In fact, Sandi appeared to be in attendance with what looked to be her boyfriend, holding a man's hand as she entered the restaurant.

"They arrived at 9 p.m. He was with a group of friends and his mom and a man who may have been her boyfriend, they were holding hands," an insider tells us. "They were inside for about three hours and when they came out they said some goodbyes to members of the group and they left. They were in separate cars, but some of his friends and his mom headed back to Drake's home afterwards."

The insider also noted, "It was a very sweet, very friendly crowd. His mom seemed to know everyone well."

Meanwhile, Drake's party on Sunday was a bit more high-key, as DJ Khaled would call it.

He hosted a party at the new Los Angeles restaurant, Delilah, and many A-listers turned out for the swanky soiree. Not only were T. Swift, Katy Perry and John Mayer turning heads by being in the same room at the same time, but French MontanaJamie FoxxShay Mitchell and more were also in attendance, sipping on Drake's Virginia Black whiskey throughout the night.

A source told E! News, "It was a very intimate party with just friends and family. Started around 9 p.m. and went until after 3 a.m. Drake came in just before 10 and was with a group of guy friends. When he came in he had a big smile and was really happy. He said hi to everyone and gave everyone hugs. People yelled, 'The birthday boy is here!'"

The insider also added, "Taylor arrived with some friends and looked to be having fun. After dinner there was lots of dancing. At one point, Drake and Taylor were seen near the DJ together talking, his arm over her shoulder for a minute like a real friend moment. It looked like they were talking about something deep."

E! News also learned that the group ate a nice dinner from a Carbone menu, which was followed by a magic show put on by David Blaine. Of course, it wouldn't be a proper celebration without everyone singing happy birthday to him, too.

After the song, we're told, "He thanked everyone for coming, gave a personal speech about thanking people who have been with him since the beginning and how much love he has for all his close friends and family who have supported him." 

Drake did receive a "few gifts" from attendees but didn't open them during the party. His biggest gift of the day, however, was the one he gave to his fans.

Drizzy announced a new project titled More Life, which will be released in December, and released three new singles that are sure to keep fans happy until it comes out.
