Drake Goes Big in Texas: New Houston Home Puts Him Hours Away from Louisiana Fans
Rap superstar Drake has apparently set roots in Houston, Texas, just a short journey from his devoted fans in Louisiana. The news was unofficially broken during his recent "It Was All a Blur" tour stop in Houston, leaving many speculating if the artist was genuinely committed to making such a move or just looking for a pop from the H-town crowd.
Further evidence came in the form of a video clip posted on social media by J-Mac, a Houston radio personality from the legendary station, 97.9 The Box, and a member of The Mad Hatta Morning Show. In the video, Drake is seen cruising through expansive property grounds on a UTV, sporting an American flag hat and speaking with a southern drawl. "Me and my podnah mayne, we done gone country on y'all," the rapper proudly announces.
In what seems to be an allusion to the property's amenities, Drake mentions that the estate comes with "10 horses," four of which are "boarding horses" because, as Drake humorously notes, "people need a nice place for their horses to stay."
Speaking to J-Mac further confirmed the buzz. According to his sources, Drake has indeed secured property in Houston, a city known for its low-key A-list celebrity populace—including rapper 50 Cent.
The timing is certainly intriguing. Drake is in the tail-end stages of his current tour and has an album, 'For All The Dogs,' slated for an October 6 release after multiple delays. As the rapper continues to carve out his path, it seems a piece of that route now lies in the heart of Texas.
As of now, no one from Drake's team has formally confirmed the property purchase. Still, the mounting evidence, coming directly from Drizzy himself, seems to suggest that the "Slime You Out" rapper is ready to embrace Southern living.
We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available regarding Drake's potential new home in the Lone Star State, just a few short hours away from Louisiana.
