"People like to build their own story about my life," he told NOW magazine. "I don't know if it makes them feel better, or if it makes it okay for them to not like me, but the last thing I grew up as was rich.
"I had rich friends, but they weren't giving me their money. I'm just not the type of guy to go, 'No, no, no, I'm not rich'. People can say whatever they want about me, though. If they really want to learn them, the facts are out there.
"But I guess it's easier on their hearts if I didn't have to struggle, and makes it easier to not like me. It is what it is."
Drake previously mentioned in the past how his mother "didn't have much money".
"When I had a Bar Mitzvah back in the day, my mum really didn't have that much money," he shared. "We kinda just did it in the basement of an Italian restaurant, which I guess is kinda like a faux pas.
"I told myself that if I ever got rich, I'd throw myself a re-Bar Mitzvah. That's the concept for the video."
