Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW) has officially begun! Tonight, Drake kicked it off by attending the Houston Astros baseball game at Minute Maid Park.
The highly anticipated Houston Appreciation Weekend began tonight at the Houston Astros game. Drake started off the night by speaking with 50 children from the Urban Youth Academy, whom he’d invited as his special guests. Before the game began Drake stepped out onto the field and explained his love for the city to all the people in the ballpark, “this is where I birthed my career. This is where I sold out my first show. This is where I met Lil Wayne. This is where it all started for me.” Before exiting the field he received a certificate from Mayor Annise D. Parker that declared June 10th “Drake Day” in Houston. Yet another accomplishment to add to the list! Check out some photos and video below. Keep checking back for more coverage on HAW over the next few days!
