For the last five years, Drake has bestowed his hometown of Toronto with a two-day music festival featuring some of the biggest names in hip-hop. It appears he’ll soon do the same for Houston, TX, as he’s announced plans for HAW (Houston Appreciation Weekend).
Drake has long considered Houston his second home. In 2009, he performed a show in the city and was joined on stage by hometown hero Bun B, helping to cement his place among hip-hop’s new bred of stars. He recently immortalized that concert by getting a Houston tattoo.
No word yet on dates or who else will be performing at HAW, but Drake says those details are coming soon. As for OVO Fest, it takes place August 3rd – 4th in Toronto and promises performances by Drake, OutKast, and a number of special guests.
