Drake’s journey from Toronto to Houston will be the focus of a new documentary by social media influencer MarQuis Trill.
A trailer for the doc features footage of the 6 God in H-Town for his annual Houston Appreciation Weekend. It also includes other glimpses of Drizzy throughout his career.
“People always ask, ‘How did you get started?'” Trill explained in the doc announcement. “Well one way was filming @Champagnepapi in Houston, Texas. Every concert, event, club, or appearance that happened in H-Town, I was there.”
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.

Documentary dropping in the summer time. Drake like you never seen him. Last addition to the film will be his house warming in Toronto when it’s completed!”
It’s unclear whether Drake is endorsing the project, but the multifaceted rapper is planning his own foray into Hollywood with a series of film and television projects including The Carter Effect, “Top Boy,” and more.
UPDATE: MarQuis Trill’s Drake documentary, Toronto to Houston, is not official and has not been approved by the OVO boss or his Houston affiliates Jas Prince, James Prince, and Rap-A-Lot Records.
