Drake is hosting his own “Houston Appreciation Weekend” this weekend in H-Town but Houston has turned around and decided to celebrate Drake.
Houston’s Mayor Annise D. Parker has decided to honor the 27-year-old Toronto native by officially making June 10th “Drake Day” in her city. Drake took to Instagram yesterday posting an image of the official document.
“In 2008, Lil Wayne invited Drake to fly to Houston and tour with him, and as a result, Drake has been a City Of Houston Ambassador, paying homage to Houston through his lyrics. He frequently mentions Houston in his songs, such as when he coined the term “Houstatlantavegas”, and has also been known to show kindness to the citizens of Houston,” the proclamation states.
The document also, “commends and appreciates Drake for dedicating his time to Houston through his passion and enthusiasm for music and our city.”
In late 2013, Drake was named the “Global Ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors. The question now is: Which city will honor Drizzy next?
