Drake has promised to pay off the mortgage of a fan’s late mother.

The “Take Care” hitmaker was handed a note by a concertgoer at his show at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri, on March 2 explaining their plight. The rapper promptly agreed to foot the bill, even though it was a “lot of money.”

“This is it?” Drake said. Someone on the front row handed Drake a note, and after reading it in a video, he shared it on X.

“You said, ‘[Pay] off my mom’s house, rest in peace.’ Your mom passed away? Alright. And you owe … Oh, this is the outstanding balance right here,” he said into his microphone while interacting with the fan. “This is a lot of money right here. But you know what, Imma pay off your momma’s house for you.”

The audience cheered, and later, the “God’s Plan” rapper told them the fan had asked him to donate “160 bands” — or $160,000 — and he was happy to help.

“Imma pay out of my pocket. That’s gonna come from me. Rest in peace to your momma.” he said.

“Hold on, wait. Rest in peace to Jennifer Schumer,” he said when he turned the note over and saw the woman’s name. “Rest in peace. I love you.”

Drake‘s generosity came days after he promised $25,000 to a fan in Buffalo after she brought a sign to his concert in which she detailed her cancer battle, following the $100,000 he pledged to someone who had beat the disease.

“That’s a true soldier right there. Y’all better make some noise,” he told the fan to whom he offered $100,000.

Last month, Drake won more than $2.3 million after betting $1.15 million of his fortune on the Kansas City Chiefs beating the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl.

And before the game, he pledged to donate the winnings to a fan.

“If I win somebody getting super blessed at the show tmrw,” he posted a screenshot with that caption of his wager on the betting platform Stake, with which he has a partnership.
