Drake caused a firestorm on Twitter when he went after Kanye West’s pool size on “Summer Sixteen.” Here’s the line again in case you missed it: “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay / Now I got a house in L.A., now I got a bigger pool than ‘Ye / And look, man, ‘Ye’s pool is nice, mine’s just bigger is what I’m sayin’.”
Word? Pools are worthy of a diss in hip-hop now? Well, Drake’s actually been very vocal about having a gigantic swimming pool in his lifetime. In a February 2014 feature with Rolling Stone, he once spoke about his ambitions to own a luxury water oasis.
"I'm obsessed with, like, residential pools. One of my goals in life is to have the biggest residential pool on the planet."
Drizzy, who doesn’t seem to go against his word, did exactly that. The YOLO Estate in Hidden Hills is something to marvel at. You want to look at photos to get an idea of how massive Drake’s pool is. But you’re better off looking through these old Instagram videos of when he threw a crazy pool party last year to get a sense of scale. Homie's got a waterfall!
King of pop in never never land...

There’s no way of telling how West’s pool pales in comparison with his. West’s private life isn’t exactly all over social media, but there have been curious fans digging up pictures of his pool when they Googled it. Drake ain’t lying.

What does this mean for Kanye? Will he pull the OG card on Drizzy for going after his pool? Honestly, this is the scenario we all want, right?
