It is no surprise that the rapper is devastated about the damage Hurricane Harvey is creating in the Texas city. The Toronto native, who credits the city with launching his career, posted the following message to his Instagram account Monday morning:
“Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need.
“I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.”
Just last month, Drake held his fourth annual “Houston Appreciation Week” and sports a Houston Astros tattoo on his shoulder so it’s clear that he has a deep affinity for the people of H-Town.
