Drake's Toronto Mansion Architectural Digest

Following the debut of the music video for his new single Toosie Slide, Drake teams up with Architectural Digest to reveal all of his Toronto Mansion. Think of it as a full tour following a sneak peak in the music video. The 50,000 Square foot home named 'The Embassy,' was designed by Canadian architect and interior designer Ferris Rafauli, has a NBA full sized indoor basketball court and a 3,200 square foot master bedroom suite. '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,' Drake told AD. 

Drake's home was modelled after a 19th century limestone mansion with modern Art Deco interiors. The epic great room for example, features 44 foot high ceilings with stunning features such as a custom designed grand piano and a centre piece metropolitan chandelier with 20,000 hand-cut Swarovski crystals. 'It's overwhelming high luxury, that message is delivered through the size of the rooms and the materials and details of the floors and ceilings. I wanted to make sure people can see the work I've put in over the years reflected from every vantage point,' Drake said.

Drake's favourite room is his 3,200 square foot master bedroom with an additional 1,100 square feet of covered terrace. The bedroom also has a 4,000 pound bathtub made of black marble, and his two closet houses showcase his collection of Hermes Birkin accessories. 'The bedroom is where I decompress from the world at the end of the night and where I open my eyes to seize the day. The bed let's you float, the shower let's you escape, and gather your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while your getting dressed,' Drake tells us.

More features include an amazing world-class recording studio, indoor swimming pool, hall of sports with Kobe Bryant and LeBron James basketball jerseys, and an award room where Drake keeps his four Grammy's. 'I think the house shows that I have true faith in myself to take on this task when I was just 27 and see it through. I also think the house says that I will forever remain solid in the place I was born. 33 year old Drake also owns a home in Hidden Hills, California.

DualSense New PlayStation 5 Wireless Controller revealed

Opened Instagram a few minutes ago and saw this beauty on my timeline! PlayStation have unveiled the new Dualsense wireless controller, to enable gamers to interact even more for an immersive experience with the virtual worlds of the new upcoming PS5 games. PS5 Tempest 3D AudioTech will bring a brand new and exhilarating experience. The new controller will feature haptic feedback, which adds sensation and vibration while you play, like the slowing down of a car vigorously driving through mud, and the triggers in L2 and R2 buttons of Dualsense reacting to your exact movement and actions in game.

The triggers will be far from bulky, but smaller, lighter and compact, yet effective, with also a longer and stronger battery life when played wirelessly. With the buttons, there will no longer be a Share button, but a new Create button to allow content creators to share their gameplay across social media, or just to build a gallery of game footage for their own memories. A built in microphone is a perfect new feature, which enables gamers to chat with friends without using a headset - Genius.
When it comes to aesthetics and visuals, previous controllers have been one solid colour, now we have a two toned design, with a new home for the lightbar at the side of each touch pad. PlayStation have spent time testing the controller with groups of gamers, with different hand sizes in order to perfect the comfort level, feel and practicality, Sony PlayStation want to bring the gaming world directly to us as soon as we pick up our controllers. Immersion is key. 

We are thrilled about sharing the final look of the DualSense controller with our fans, and we can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it! I'd like to close with a message from SIE President & CEO Jim Ryan to the community:
'Dualsense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games - continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I truly want tot hank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head towards PS5's launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design in the coming months.' - Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment.

IGTV Gaming Series Kemi Online

Just a quick post to let you know I've started a gameplay series on IGTV, just to see what my followers will think. I will be posting weekly and fortnightly to showcase some of the best clips from the games I play. I've started with GTA V as many of you know that's my favourite game of all time literally lol!  I've enrolled on an online YouTube course to learn everything there is to know about launching a successful YouTube channel. I would love to know about the best software out there for editing videos as well as camera equipment so I can steadily launch my channel and become a gaming content creator. My web design CSS and HTML skills were all self taught, and I designed my blog so editing is a huge creative passion of mine. I love doing it.

I would like to build my social media presence more when I launch my channel and try to also stream on Twitch when I can depending on how busy my schedule gets with school. I have a Twitch channel already and tried my first live Grand Theft Auto stream which achieved over 6k live views, that was kool and encouraging.  My blog will continue as I approach 5 million views but I will not write posts as much I will just link my newly posted YouTube videos, I will also do vlogs for major gaming events here, in the UK, Europe, and USA too. Feel free to drop me a DM on Instagram to say hi! The people who support me, I promise to give you more of what your asking for.

New Music Video 'Toosie Slide' Drake

 Who loves Drake? We do! Toosie Slide is here, 'It go right foot up, left foot slide / Left foot up, right foot slide... Basically I'm saying either way we 'bout to slide..' The new video was filmed during quarantine in Drizzy's  native home in Toronto, Canada. Wearing a black mask and camo bomber jacket, Drake walks through his 35,000 square foot mansion, named 'The Embassy,' admiring his awards and Grammy's in the intro, and dancing on the marble floors. The Toosie Slide dance has ignited a Tik Tok phenomenon! Walking past his musically inspired hallways with pictures of Prince and Snoop Dogg, the fitting lockdown-times video finishes with fireworks from Drake's back garden and rooftops leaving fans anxious for a follow up to 2018's Scorpion album.
