Reps for Drake confirm that neither Drake nor anyone from Rap-A-Lot Records, YEMG or OVO has any association with director MarQuis Trill and have not approved of or authorized his documentary. 

Drake’s decorated musical career has roots in multiple cities. The O.V.O. general has shouted out places like Memphis to Houston as much as he’s paid homage to his beloved hometown of Toronto. So it should come as no surprise that the title of an upcoming documentary highlighting the rapper-turned-mogul’s impressive rise to stardom is Toronto to Houston.

Director MarQuis Trill took to Instagram to preview a trailer of the forthcoming documentary over the weekend via a clip that features different moments from the 6-god’s storied musical journey — with a specific focus on his relationship to Houston.

Check out the trailer below.

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.
