Drake pays tribute to numerous Houston natives both in Hip Hop and sports.
Drake has always been known to have an affinity for the city of Houston and once again the Canadian-born rapper is at it again with the 2015 version of his Houston Appreciation Weekend.
Thursday night, the event began with a Bun B tribute. Houston’s mayor, Annise Parker, also spoke at the ceremony held in honor of the city. Comedian Hannibal Buress made an appearance to do a stand-up set and it was on.
To close Thursday night, Drake decided to take a more somber approach and pay the UGK emcee a debt of gratitude explaining that he made him “a lot cooler than I was.”
