Drake’s New 50,000 Square-Foot Toronto Mansion He Built From The Ground Up Is Absurd

As many Americans are in a pinch to pay their rent due to the fallout from the Tom Hanks Disease, Drake could not be more flush.

The rapper, who has an estimated net worth of $150 million, let Architectural Digest into his 50,000 square-foot Toronto mansion he built from the ground up and left no expense spared.

The home, which has been six years in the making, is a divergence from the hollow mega mansions you may be used to seeing from celebrities, as literally every inch of the place looks to be obsessed over.

Here are just a few of the many obscene amenities:

  • NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court with a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight.
  • 20,000 pieces of hand-cut Swarovski crystal, the second largest installation of its kind in the world.
  • 3,200-square-foot master-bedroom suite with a bed and bed base that weigh nearly one ton and a whiskey and champagne bar attached.
  • A master bath featuring a 4,000-pound tub of faceted black marble carved from a single block.
  • A world-class recording studio with an adjoining awards room.
  • Furniture upholstered in dyed ostrich skin.

Meanwhile, I’m still waiting to hear back from my landlord about the garbage disposal shitting the bed.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
