It’s a known fact that Drake has a deep appreciation for Texas, even starting his Houston Appreciation Weekend festival series in 2014. It has now been announced that a new documentary based on his Space City adventures is on the way.
Dubbed Toronto To Houston, the documentary is the brainchild of MarQuis Trill, CEO of Entertainment 258 Agency Inc. “People always ask ‘How did you get started?’ Well one way was filming Drake in Houston, TX,’ Trill said on Instagram. “Every concert, event, club, or appearance that happened in H-Town, I was there. 2018 marks the 5th year anniversary of ‘Houston Appreciation Weekend.’ To understand what Houston Appreciation Weekend, a.k.a #HAW, is all about, you have to go back to its origin. I’m talking 2009, as Drake was rising to the top of the music world. He credits Houston for the culture and the impact it had on him with launching his career – specifically on May 8, 2009, the show at Warehouse Live.”
A preview for Toronto To Houston can be seen below.
This documentary is, apparently, unauthorized; TMZ reports that neither Drake’s “Houston team,” Jas Prince (the man credited with discovering Drake), his father Jay Prince or Rap-A-Lot Records participated in the documentary. However, Trill says that it is tentatively slated to be released in the Summer 2018.
