Size of the mansion that Canadian rapper Drake just built in Toronto, only 5,000 square feet smaller than the U.S. White House: 50,000 square feet

To build what he dubbed "The Embassy," Drake tore down a 1963 house designed by architect James A. Murray, founding editor of Canadian Architect:

Drake's video for "Toosie Slide" is effectively a tour of his mansion, from the hall with awards in glass vitrines to the indoor pool.
