The OVO head honcho has given fans a mini-tour of his sprawling Toronto mansion.
Drake has finally taken up residence at his eye-watering, no expense spared multi-million dollar Toronto mansion.
The 'In My Feeling's rapper purchased the $6.7 million piece of land in North-East Toronto's exclusive Bridle Path area in 2018, and had built on it a 35,000 square-foot palace.
The crib features an OVO-branded NBA regulation-size basketball court - which DJ Khaled gave fans a glimpse of during one of his visits - and a toilet that plays soft music when you enter the bathroom.
Drake opened the doors of his mega mansion to Architectural Digest in a piece published in April 2020, who described the "manor" as a "a marvel of old-world craftsmanship, constructed of limestone, bronze, exotic woods, and other noble materials."
"Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel," said Drake of his passion project.
"It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong." The feature included a whole host of images from the palace, including the eye-watering master bedroom and bathroom suite.
During a tour on Instagram, the 33-year-old rapper shows off one of his living areas, complete with plush grey furniture decorated with cushions and slick, shiny coffee tables.
The expansive room is home to a roaring fireplace with a tall mirror hanging above it. Huge chandeliers scale the high ceilings and a grand piano sits in the corner of one of the rooms.
Drake also gave fans a glimpse of his mega kitchen, which boasts an opulent marble island and rows of navy blue chairs for his guests to casually dine at.
Filming himself in the reflection of one of his mirrored cabinets, Drake showed off what appears to be part of a collection of colourful ornaments and elaborate crockery and glasses.
The mansion is reportedly surrounded by super tall 4.4 metre fences for optimum privacy and security, which Drake had to ask permission for as the city's law states no residential fence can exceed two metres in height.
The palatial pad designed by Ontario-based luxury home designer and builder Ferris Rafauli.
As well as the basketball court, the mansion also features an elevator, a 10-car garage, four guest bedrooms, an awards room, a piano room, screening room, a gym and a jersey room for his basketball memorabilia.
In January 2020, Drake took to social media to show off his growing array of collectable items.
