How rich is Drake?

Well, the dude recently bought a 50,000 square-foot Toronto mansion he built from the ground up, complete with an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court, 20,000 pieces of hand-cut Swarovski crystal (the second largest installation of its kind in the world), 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, and furniture upholstered in dyed ostrich skin.

The short answer: he’s worth an estimated $150 million.

The 33-year-old rapper made another gaudy expense in the form of two new diamond chains honoring the late Tupac Shakur.

Commissioned by jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills, each half-kilo gold pendant is matched with a 70-carat diamond chain. The pieces are reportedly valued at $300,000 per and took a combined 150 hours of intricate manpower to complete.

These puppies should pair nicely with his $150,000 Toronto Raptors championship ring and $400,000 diamond-encrusted iPhone case (also constructed by Jason of Beverly Hills.

Meanwhile, I need to get the battery in my Casio replaced.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. 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.
