Drake has opened the doors to his stunning Toronto mansion in a new photoshoot and interview for Architectural Digest (AD), telling the publication he wanted the property to have a “monumental feel”.

The Canadian rapper sports a grey shearling-style coat on the cover of the magazine, with the inside pages featuring close-up looks at the God’s Plan star’s extravagant abode.

Speaking to AD about what inspired his home, Drake explained: “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. It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong.”

He described the property as “overwhelmingly high luxury” and showed off his incredible master bedroom that features a huge black marble bathtub and two-storey closet.

“The bed lets you float, the shower lets you escape and gather your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while you’re getting dressed,” the star explained.

The mansion, which features in part in Drake’s new Toosie Slide video, also features a NBA-sized basketball court, roof terrace, a swimming pool in the basement and an awards room.

“I wanted to make sure people can see the work I’ve put in over the years reflected from every vantage point,” Drake explained. “I also think the house says that I will forever remain solid in the place I was born.”
