"Thank you mama for the 9 months you carried me through…all the pain and suffering," the hip-hop star wrote.
Drake did start from the bottom but he has had his mother's support. Now, he paid tribute to her as she turned 75. The hip-hop star, 36, celebrated his mother Sandi Graham's birthday over the weekend with his 5-year-old son Adonis and it was a memorable day for the family, reported PEOPLE. In a touching Instagram post, Drizzy lauded his mom for raising him and shared photos from the celebration.
Drake started the post with, "75 Years". He continued, "Thank you mama for the 9 months you carried me through…all the pain and suffering. No one knows the pressure you bear just only you…give you all my love". As per ET Canada, He signed off with “Kalonji.”
Accompanying this post is a trio of pictures, one picture features him throwing up peace signs alongside Drake (real name Aubrey Graham), and in another, he is seen doing the same with Sandi and the rapper's father, Dennis Graham.
The adorable family moments did not stop there. On his Instagram Story, on January 28, Drake uploaded more clips from the event, including one where he called Sandi his "twin" with a big smile. In the other images, he is seen holding Adonis tight and giving a speech at the party.
Since his earlier days when he lived in a Canadian basement while starring on Degrassi, Drake and his mom have had a loving bond and they have frequently opened up about this connection. Back in 2021, one day ahead of the release of his Certified Lover Boy album, Sandi showed love for her son and explained how proud she was of him in a card he shared on social media.
Sandi wrote in the card, "It's finally come, the countdown has reached one, with each new album my heart skips a beat, being your mother has been my life's greatest treat." "It's been a long hard road together, now there's one more day to go. I wanna celebrate you son, more than you'll ever know." She added, "Love you more now and forever."
Drake even showered his love on his mother last weekend on the second night of his two Apollo Theater shows in New York City, where he called her his biggest fan. The intimate show was a tribute to his journey in hip-hop, and one set design emulated his childhood bedroom in Sandi's basement. During that set-up, he played Over My Dead Body off his 2011 album Take Care and threw on a cardigan for old times' sake.
Drake said toward the end of the show, "The fact that I can still make music, and the fact that you still care. The fact that we can still, after all these years, from [Degrassi's] Jimmy Brooks til now, just relate to each other somehow." He concluded, "I'll be there for you. In your darkest moments and your happiest moments, I'll be there for you."
The hip-hop star will be there for us and his mom will be there for him!
