Drake says that his mother, Sandi Graham, also hails from a "very musical" family — his grandmother babysat Aretha Franklin.
He was raised in Canada by his Jewish mother, but would visit his father in Memphis.
Drake inherited the musical gene from his dad, who was a drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis, and his uncle, Larry Graham, who played bass for Prince.
More significantly, the song contained a version of Brisco and Flo Rida’s "Man of the Year," which featured Lil Wayne.
Drake decided to leave Wayne’s verses and hook intact while he provided the rest of the lyrics himself.
Drake is a GRAMMY winning recording artist who hails from Canada.
