DRAKE DAY in Houston + Sound Advice

Drake has never been shy about expressing his gratitude towards Houston, Texas. With his own Houston Appreciation Weekend kicking off today, Drizzy has always made it clear that H-Town is his second home. And to re-pay the respect, Mayor Annise D. Parker has made June 10th "Drake Day" in the city of Houston.

Taking to his Instagram Thursday night, Drizzy posted a picture of his new proclamation of “Drake Day”, which a small excerpt read:

"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 OVO rapper received the proclamation at Minute Maid Park tonight, where he’s hosting Houston Appreciation Night at the Astros game (See pictures in gallery above). Unfortunately June 10th has already come and gone this year, but Drake will have the opportunity to celebrate his own special day this weekend at HAW.
