So what does it mean to live like Drizzy?

Well, the Toronto native more commonly known as Drake spends much of his time these days in his home in Hidden Hills, California, a gated neighborhood next to Calabasas.

The area near Los Angeles has been home to Kanye West, the Kardashian clan, Justin Bieber, and plenty of other rich and/or very famous folks.
But there's something unique about Drake's mansion, which he bought for $7.7 million from Saddle Ranch owner Larry Pollack in mid-2012, Curbed reports.

It has one of the most luxurious pools in the world. With its own grottos, it was designed to outdo Hugh Hefner's notorious Playboy Mansion pool, Drake said in an interview.

He's apparently somewhat obsessed with pools, as he name-checked his own in a recent song to say it was bigger than Kanye's.

As Drake's newest album, "Views," scores the artist's first No. 1 song, take a look inside the rapper/singer's Hidden Hills paradise.

Note: Photos come from the real-estate site where the house was listed before Drake bought it, so it's missing the artist's customizations.
