Drake Promises to Cover Fan’s Surgery Bills During St. Louis Concert: ‘We Gonna Help You Out’

Drake has been giving back to his fans quite a bit while on the road. During his Monday night (Feb. 12) stop in St. Louis asking, the “6 God” rapper spotted a fan asking for his help covering an upcoming costly surgery — and Drizzy stopped the show to let them know that he would pay for the unspecified treatment.

“You got a sign that says, ‘Please help me with my surgery.’ I don’t know what kinda surgery you need, sir. I really don’t but I’ma let you know from me to you St. Louis love, we gon’ take care whatever the surgery is,” Drake promised. “We gonna help you out because we want you to be at the next show with us. You gotta show us love.” The fan’s face appeared on the Enterprise Center jumbotron, as he emotionally reacted to the rapper’s promise.

This is far from the first charitable move Drake’s made on the It’s All a Blur — Big as the What? Tour. Last week, during a show in Nashville, the OVO boss congratulated a fan on finishing chemotherapy and blessed them with a $100,000 gift.

“Listen, forget Drake, forget anybody else in this building right now. That’s a true soldier right there,” Drake said which drew an ovation from the crowd. “I hope my manager doesn’t kill me ’cause I’ve never really done this much, but, listen, I want you to cash this in at the end of the night. We’re gonna give you $100,000. I love you and I wish you the best.”

According to a report from The Tennessean, the fan was identified as Lauren Schwallie and she has been fighting breast cancer since 2022.

“One thing led to another and I was at the front of the stage and Drake blew me a kiss and told me that he loved me! That’s all I was focused on … And then just like the money on top of it is just insane,” she told the publication of the pleasant surprise.

Drake and J. Cole’s It’s All a Blur — Big as the What? Tour continues this weekend with a pair of shows in Pittsburgh where another lucky fan could reap the benefits of Drizzy’s deep pockets.
