Drake may be from Toronto, but the man is a Houstonian at heart. Through songs, wardrobe choices and his travels, here are five ways Drizzy held it down when it came to H-Town.
Pretty much every song on “Nothing Was the Same”
“Like H-Town in the summer time, I keep it 100
Met a lot of girls in my times there, word to Paul Wall, not one fronted
I was birthed there in my first year, man I know that place like I come from it
Backstage at Warehouse in ’09 like “Is Bun comin’?
F*** that, is anyone comin’ before I show up there and there’s no one there?
These days, I could probably pack it for like twenty nights if I go in there”
— Drake, “Too Much”
He wears Greg Ward Jr.’s jersey on stage

He actually likes the Astros (when most of us don’t)

He holds a “Houston Appreciation Weekend” every year (#HAW2016)

He probably has more friends in Houston than you do

Don’t worry, we return the favor every year with “Drake Day”
