During a visit to Houston, Young Money rapper Drake announced he would celebrate Houston Appreciation Weekend between Friday, June 13 and Sunday, June 15.
Though Drake has lived most of his life in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he has expressed in the past how important Houston has been to him during a transitional period in his younger days.
Drake announced the HAW festival at The Gatsby nightclub on Washington Avenue as part of the 1 year anniversary celebration of the Aristocrat Life promotions group, which was sponsored by Hennessy.
HAW will include a pop-up store that will feature Drake’s signature October’s Very Own (OVO) apparel, a charity dinner event, and a pop-up hookah venue.
