Drake and OVO are honoring the city of Houston this weekend with “Houston Appreciation Weekend” and H-Town has returned the favor by declaring June 10 “Drake Day.” While at a Houston Astros game last night, the Mayor of the City, Annise Parker, presented Drizzy with the official proclamation paper which Drake posted on his Instagram.
The proclamation waxes poetically about Drake’s career and contributions to hip-hop and reads:
“WHEREAS, 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 the lyrics. He frequently mentions Houston in his songs, such as when he coined the term “Houstonatlantavegas,” and has also been known to show kindness to the citizens of Houston. Drake will be hosting the Inaugural Houston Appreciation week; and
WHEREAS, the City of Houston commends and appreciates Drake for dedicating his time to Houston through his passion and enthusiasm for music and our city.”
Drake has a busy weekend ahead of him as he will be running around Houston hosting club nights and performing for the city he adorns.
