Drake recently gave Architectural Digest a home tour and sis, let me tell you—my spennanight bag is packed and ready to go.

In images that, frankly, made me feel poor AF, the rapper unveiled his extravagant Toronto mansion, which was expertly designed by luxury home designer, Ferris Rafauli, and it was a lot to process.

The home, which has been a passion project for the 33-year-old "Toosie Slide" rapper for the last six years, is one that Drake hopes will leave a legacy in his city for a very long time:

"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."

The 50,000 square-foot 19th-century limestone mansion features an in-home studio, a full-sized basketball court, and a two-story closet fully stocked with Birkin bags for his "future wife"; and may we all please have a moment of silence for his 3,200 square-foot bedroom, which is pretty much my apartment. Times two. He told the publication:

"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."

The property, which he originally purchased for $6.7 million is now worth more than $100 million dollars and features marble and gold trimmings, antique mirrors, 44-foot high ceilings, a champagne-equipped headboard, and a 4,000-pound marble bathtub that could probably wash your sins away, tbh.

Drake, who said that his "estate" was built with "overwhelming high luxury" in mind, wanted to be clear that his home looks expensive AF… because it is. The Canadian entertainer told AD:

"It's overwhelming high luxury. That message is delivered through the size of the rooms and the materials and details of the floors and the ceilings. I wanted to make sure people can see the work I've put in over the years reflected from every vantage point."

We’ve all been there: Exhausted, lacking motivation, on edge, or simply not feeling like working at all. And we might have even used up all of our sick days, not to rest from a cold or injury, but just to get a bit of relief from those job or business responsibilities. Sometimes, you're not able to shake that nagging feeling of gloom, eventually finding yourself in a toxic pattern of unhealthy habits and behaviors. There's a larger issue that goes way beyond just needing a break.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
