A Houston holiday...
NME reports that the city of Houston, Texas has declared June 10 to be "Drake Day". Drake is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada but currently lives in Houston. He posted a photo on his Instagram yesterday showing a proclamation from Houston mayor Annise D Parker.
It reads: "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."
It also said that "Drake Day" is a holiday that "commends and appreciates Drake for dedicating his time to Houston through his passion and enthusiasm for music and our city".
