How Sandi raise her son to become the best rapper in the world?

As a single mother, it was really difficult for her to raise her child financially and physically. 

Despite all of this, she gave her best to give him a good life. 

Sandi raised her son in Weston Road in Toronto, which was not the very best place to live. 

She was suffering from joint aches and Osteoporosis at that time which left her in bed for a long time, due to which she started smoking. 

She was under medication but later when she started to improve, she moved out of that place to a wealthier part of town, in Forest Hill

At that time, Drake was in the sixth grade.  But moving to a new place didn't solve everything as they were still broke. 

They had to rent their basement and the first floor of the house.  But despite all this, she always managed to fulfill the needs of her son. 

She encouraged him so much to do what he likes. It was challenging for Drake to get where he is right now.

Because of his mother's love and support, he honors his mom in every event and occasion. 

He also said that his mother is an incredible person; no matter what, she always told him that she will always love him and support him for whatever he does and whatever he ends up being.
