We all know the affinity Drake has for the city of Houston. It will never top the love he has for Toronto, but it’s his second home.
Director Marquis Trill has witnessed this appreciation for H-Town from Drizzy and has documented a lot of it. He has put together a documentary titled Toronto to Houston, where he gives fans an inside look on what it was to be there from day one. Although the project is not endorsed by October’s Very Own or Drake himself, it still looks interesting.
People always ask “How did you get started?” Well one way was filming @Champagnepapi in Houston, Tx. 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. Hope everyone enjoys my artistic documentary.
Side note: To all the artists, hustlers, creators and aspiring professionals. Stay focused, block all negativity and work on your craft everyday. I know there are some days when you feel like all your work is going unnoticed & your career isn’t moving. I’m here as living proof to tell you “You can be where and what you want to be.”
We wouldn’t be surprised if Aubrey actually watched it (or at least part of it) at some point this year. You know he stays online lurking for new shit.
UPDATE: Drake’s team has already caught wind of the documentary even before it came out, saying they have not approved of the project at all. Neither has Jas Prince or Rap-A-Lot Records and every virtually every claim that was made as far as the work on the doc.
