Good taste is hard to quantify but when you see you know. The same applies to bad taste although I’m not entirely sure people who have it are aware they do. But if they do they simply pretend they don’t and label naysayers as haters or in Drake’s case; poor.
Drake is undeniably one of if not the biggest stars in hip-hop, that much is true but when it comes to having taste he has more in common with someone like Rich the Kid than Tyler, the Creator. There’s no better example of this than Drake’s video ‘Toosie Slide’ a brand new TikTok inspired song that’s sweeping the nation. Viral dance challenges are a “thing” now with the kids so I guess this new single shouldn’t come as a surprise but what did surprise me was how gaudy Drake’s £81 million mansion looks like on the inside. The only thing I don’t hate is the trophy room. It looks like something you’d see in the National History museum but instead of displaying fossils of extinct dinosaurs each perspex box contains Grammys etc. The rest of the house makes the Shahs of Sunset look modest, from giant marble kitchen counters to dimly-lit-brothel-inspired indoor swimming pool it’s a truly horrendous display of wealth. And if you don’t believe me here’s some screenshots from the video as proof.
