Dedicated to my mom and I swear
This precise song was written the same night when Drake had an altercation with his mother; he discusses the argument in the first 8 bars of the 2nd verse in “Successful” (from his So Far Gone mixtape)
After Aubrey had the verbal altercation with his mother, he later felt guilt, and decided that he wanted to make up to her what he felt he owed, the respect and love of a son. A couple years later, he dedicated a song on Take Care “Look What You’ve Done” to her. This specific line has a lot of background to it.
