Explaining that he learned about Murray’s situation from Mustafa the Poet, Drake said, “I can’t imagine how tough you have to be, and Mustafa let me know how you’re a fan of mine. Well, I’m a fan of you. I’m a fan of people with heart, and I can tell that you have a lot of heart. I just wanna tell you, stay strong, I love you, and I appreciate you.”

Murray’s mother Temeka shared a video of her son receiving the video message, appearing totally speechless at the gesture.

She added of all the best wishes they have received from the public, “We truly appreciate all the love and support and we need your continued prayers.”
