Drake opened up his 50,000-square-foot, $100 million Toronto mansion to Architectural Digest, which published photos Wednesday of the “extravagant” Beaux Arts home that the rapper has dubbed “The Embassy.” “Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years,” Drake told AD. “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.”

But it’s … maybe not quite generating the awe he expected. “Why does Drake live in a lobby” tweeted editor Silvia Killingsworth. “Airport Hilton,” chipped in The Wall Street Journal‘s Jason Gay.

Yahoo Finance‘s Oscar Williams-Grut accurately noted that “money can’t buy taste,” while another Twitter user wrote: “Drake’s house decor is giving me … cruise ship.” Check out the dizzying photos for yourself at AD.
