Published Jan 30, 2017Drake has referenced his mansion in Hidden Hills, CA, a number of times in his lyrics, but he will likely forego penning any bars about it from here on out, as the property is now up for sale.
UPDATE (1/30, 7 p.m. EST): If you were hoping to buy up Drake's mansion, we have some bad news. Apparently, the sale was a big hoax, TMZ reports, with an impostor who pretended to be Drake's manager putting up the fake listing for the estate. When confronted about the listing, the imposter admitted it was all a scam.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the Canadian rap icon has put the 13,000-square-foot home, dubbed the YOLO Estate, on the market for $19,999,900 USD. The house sits on three acres of land and features six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
The property also features a 25-seat movie theatre, a tennis/basketball court, game room, spa, wine cellar and a pool complete with waterfalls, swim-in grotto and rock waterslide. Of course, the pool is indeed bigger than that of his neighbour Kanye West.
Drake bought the house in 2012 for $7.7 million, though it was first listed in 2009 by Saddle Ranch owner Larry Pollack for $27 million.
The listing could signal the rapper's imminent return home to the Great White North, having started work on a ridiculously huge new mansion in Toronto's Bridle Path neighbourhood last year.
The new house will reportedly feature five bedrooms, a special museum built for basketball jerseys, a room for "important artifacts," a piano room, an indoor pool and another celebrated Canadian songwriter for a neighbour.
