The Young Money rapper said that his mother has made him "appreciate women" while he wants to be "a great dad" because of his father.
"My mother made me truly appreciate women," Drake shared to The Daily Beast. "I obviously make sex-driven, darker, sexier music, but I try not to offend women in them. It's not in my character.
"And my father was basically a reverse role model for me. I'm dying to be a great dad one day, whenever that day comes.
"Other than that, it was hard just growing up with my mum and watching her fight for me to have a good childhood. It was tough to watch."
Bluewater Productions recently announced that Drake is to star in a new biographic comic book about his life and rise to stardom titled Fame: Drake, which will be released in January 2012.
Drake's Take Care album is now available in stores.
