Welcome to “The Embassy”- Drake’s Toronto Mansion
Who does not know a Canadian rapper Aubrey Drake Graham and his popular music “In my feelings”, God's plan, Toosie slide etc. can be called this century’s master pieces.
He was born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Ontario. His father, Dennis Graham, is an African American, who worked as a drummer, performing alongside country musician Jerry Lee Lewis; undoubtedly his father was his first inspiration followed by Jay-Z and Clipse. Drake's mother, Sandra Graham, is an Ashkenazi Jewish Canadian who worked as an English teacher and florist. Unfortunately Drake’s parents divorced when he was five years old.
Drake may have started from the bottom – but now he is widely credited for popularizing Toronto sound to the music industry and lives in a custom-built worth of $100 million Toronto luxurious 50,000 square-foot mega-mansion.
Drake says about his passion project "Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years and 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."
The mansion is constructed of limestone, bronze, exotic woods, and other noble materials.

Drake shares about his home “The bedroom is where I come to decompress from the world at the end of the night and where I open my eyes to seize the day,". "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."
"I wanted to make sure people can see the work I have put in over the years reflected from every vantage point," he added
Drake first purchased the mansion in 2018, spending $6.7 million USD for the plot of land located in North-East Toronto’s exclusive Bridle Path area, otherwise known as “Millionaire’s Row”.
