YMCMB rapper and songwriter Drake (born Aubrey Graham) took to Twitter last night to post some sad news. The 26-year-old entertainer revealed his grandmother’s passing in a tweet late Thanksgiving. He wrote the following words:
“Rest in peace to my grandmother Evelyn Sher. What a day to go…thankful to have had the times we did.,” (Drake’s Twitter account)
Though an exact cause of death has not been revealed, reports surfaced online last May that Drake’s grandmother was gravely ill. Rapper Noreaga’s hip hop news site 57thAve.com posted the following statement to confirm Drake’s cancellation of shows on his Club Paradise Tour.
