Drake’s rise to the stardom will be chronicled in an upcoming documentary, titled Toronto To Houston, which is slated for release this summer.
The documentary, directed by MarQuis Trill, displays Drake’s connection to the city of Houston and how it helped influence and shape his hip-hop career.
“[Drake] 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,” Trill stated in a social media post. Additionally, he says Drake’s annual Houston Appreciation Weekend, which began in 2013, had a major impact on the artist’s rise to fame.
The documentary is composed of year’s worth of live show recordings in the city, news updates and behind-the-scenes footage of the artist’s personal life. “Every concert, event, club, or appearance that happened in H-Town, I was there,” Trill explains.
It is unknown at the moment whether Drizzy is involved with the documentary himself. However, Trill says he plans to add Drake’s Toronto housewarming party as the final addition to the documentary.
Check out the trailer for Toronto to Houston below:
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.” Title: Toronto to Houston Date: TBA Director & Editor: @MarQuisTrill *This is not endorsed by Drake* TAG 5-7 PEOPLE | WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG BY “DRAKE”? | I WILL PICK 5 WINNERS OUT OF THE COMMENTS TO WIN PRIZES! #Drake #documentary #Houston #Toronto #warehouselive #Concert #marquistrill #Ovo #Haw #drakeconcert #bts #Series #houstonappreciationweekend #Mediacontent #Entertainment258 #Contest #tagafriend #engineroomhtx #mercyhouston #theballet #Morelife | A documentary film is a nonfictional motion picture intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction, education, or maintaining a historical record.
