Drake Sure Knows How to Celebrate His Jewish Momma

Rapper Drake really loves his Jewish momma.

Sandi Graham, a teacher, raised Drake (full name Aubrey Drake Graham) all by herself in Toronto after she divorced his father, drummer Dennis Graham. Drake says the divorce deeply impacted him: “I had to become a man very quickly and be the backbone for a woman who I love with all my heart, my mother.”

And while he admits he doesn’t call enough, the “Hotline Bling” rapper sure is a doting son.

Happy Birthday my love! Tonight is your night.

He often mentions her in his songs and he always listens to his mother, just like a good Jewish boy: “retired teacher/but your words still got me evolving,” he raps about her in “You & the Six”.

So when it comes to celebrating momma Sandi, Drake spares no expenses. Just look at this amazing birthday cake he got her for her birthday this Thursday:

I do this all for you. Happy Birthday my angel.
