One massive Drake fan, social media influencer MarQuis Trill, is taking his appreciation for the Toronto rapper to the next level, turning years worth of Drizzy visuals into a self-made documentary titled Toronto to Houston.
MarQuis confirmed via social media that this year marks his fifth year working on the project, adding that the documentary is set to drop this summer once he adds final footage from Drake's forthcoming housewarming party in Toronto.
The editor/director of the forthcoming flick also shared a trailer on Instagram, during which he explained how he got started working on such an ambitious undertaking.
"People always ask, 'How did you get started?'" MarQuis writes in the caption. "Well one way was filming @Champagnepapi in Houston, Texas. Every concert, event, club, or appearance that happened in H-Town, I was there."
He also explains how his film focuses on Drake's oft-vocalized appreciation for the city of Houston, adding, "[Drake] 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."
While the 6 God himself has not yet confirmed whether he was personally involved in the making of the film or if he will endorse it when it is released, MarQuis' excitement about the project is certainly at the forefront, with the director sharing words of encouragement to fellow creatives along with his announcement.
Take a look at the trailer for Toronto to Houston 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 Courtesy of RAPALOT 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
