Drake’s new house is currently under construction in his hometown of Toronto and new images and details about his massive mansion let us know just how insanely rich the rapper really is.

TIn 2016, oronto’s Globe and Mail reported that the beginning construction phases for Drake’s Toronto mansion were underway and recent photos and information show the progress its made since then.

Drake himself shared images of the progress of his multimillion-dollar home last week — and from the look of the photos, it appears that his new spot looks more like a colossal art museum than a mansion.

The photos that were posted show aerial views of the property along with a snapshot of the inside being painted. According to the dedicated Drake fan Twitter account, the new images were shared on Drake’s Instagram story last week.

Designer Ferris Rafauli shared video footage of Drake’s new home to Instagram. The well-known luxury designer posts updates periodically to let everyone know the status of Drake’s new Toronto residence. Drake and Rafauli have already collaborated on other projects. According to Architectural Digest, Rafauli designed Drake’s exclusive party at the Air Canada Centre in 2016.

What’s inside Drake’s new house 

According to TMZ, Drake’s 21,000-square-foot mansion will feature an NBA-size basketball court in the basement, surrounded by a home spa featuring two saunas, a massage room, and a pool with a hot tub. TMZ reports a snack lounge will be suspended above the basketball court, offering a perfect view of the action below.

Aside from the regulation-sized basketball court, the home will also feature other luxury amenities fit for a superstar including a home theater, recording studio wine and champagne bar.

Drake will reportedly have an award room to hold all his trophies and platinum record plaques. In 2017, the Toronto rapper took home a total of 13 Billboard awards, so it’s safe to say he needs a lot of space for his accolades.

Drake’s new house will also feature a rooftop terrace with another hot tub, an outdoor swimming area surrounded by bars and enormous projection screens. Drake’s new house will also have a 10-car garage. 

Where is Drake’s house located?

While the exact location of Drake’s new house hasn’t been revealed (for obvious reasons), TMZ reports that his mansion is located in the same exclusive neighborhood where Prince once owned a home. According to The Star, one of Prince’s former homes is located at 61 The Bridle Path, so Drake’s new home isn’t far from that location.
