Inside Drake’s $8 million mansion

What does it mean to live like Drake, the No. 1 man in the rap game?

The hip-hop superstar reveals himself in all his new music, including his latest project, “More Life,” which is touted as a “playlist” and includes some of the rapper and singer’s best tracks to date.

He may not talk about the insane pool surrounded by caves in his California mansion on “More Life,” but he admits to his love of material things: “I don’t take naps / Me and the money are way too attached to go and do that,” he raps on “Gyalchester.”

The Toronto native certainly lives like he’s rolling in it in his home in Hidden Hills, California, a gated neighborhood next to Calabasas.

The area near Los Angeles has been home to Kanye West, the Kardashian clan, Justin Bieber, and plenty of other rich and/or very famous folks.

But there’s something unique about Drake’s mansion, which he bought for $7.7 million from Saddle Ranch owner Larry Pollack in mid-2012, Curbed reports.

It has one of the most luxurious pools in the world. With its own grottos, it was designed to outdo Hugh Hefner’s notorious Playboy Mansion pool, Drake said in an interview. Drizzy is apparently somewhat obsessed with pools —he once bragged in a song that his was bigger than Kanye’s.

This aerial shot gives you a sense of the enormous size of the house … and especially of that pool.

 

But the front is friendly and not ostentatious.

 
 

There are beautiful wooden beams running throughout the house.

 

A library.

 

A cavernous wine cellar.

 

A gym, likely where Drake has been getting noticeably bulkier.

 

But the centerpiece, as Drake himself has made clear, is that pool.

 

Check out the manmade grottos to the side.

 

The house was originally listed for $27 million, but the owner was at a “low moment,” Drake said, and “I stole it from him!”
