The Toronto rapper – who hosted a pop-up strip club “The Ballet” during Super Bowl weekend and last month hosted his annual three-day Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW) – posted a letter on social media Monday (Aug. 28), saying he was “devastated” by the aftermath of the storm and vowing to offer his assistance.
“We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years,” he wrote, shortly after hitting the stage in London with Giggs at Reading Festival and Boy Better Know for the collective’s BBK Takeover Festival.
Later in the post, Drake vowed to “assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible,” and praised those who have already stepped up to help the hurricane victims. In a separate post, the “Blem” rapper posted a list of emergency numbers victims can call for relief.
“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.”
