Drake laughs off Kanye West revealing Toronto home address

Drake is laughing off Kanye West’s latest move amid the rappers’ longtime feud, which saw the Jesus Walks hitmaker allegedly sharing the Canadian star’s home address.

West shared, then deleted, an Instagram post on Monday of a Google map location in Toronto, that seemed to pinpoint the location of Drake’s huge home.

The reveal followed more drama between the pair over the weekend.

Drake features on the Trippie Reid song Betrayal that dropped late Friday, and his lyrics seemed to be a dig at Kanye’s repeated postponements of his new album, Donda: “Ye ain’t changin’ s— for me, it’s set in stone.”

West then reportedly called out the Work star in a group text. He shared a screenshot of the chat to his Instagram account, featuring a shot of Joaquin Phoenix as the murderous Joker, alongside the caption: “I live for this. I’ve been f—– with by nerd ass jock n—– like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you (sic).”

The post was swiftly deleted but NME editors in the U.K. captured a screenshot.

Drake laughing after Kanye West shares address of his Bridle Path mansion in Toronto

Drake and Kanye West are actively feuding again, in full and conspicuous public view, as both artists get ready to drop highly-anticipated (and majorly-delayed) new albums.

At least that's what I hope and assume is behind their latest social media beef, which incidentally just resulted in Ye publishing Drizzy's home address to Instagram.

West shared a Google Maps screenshot via Instagram early Sunday morning including the address of Drake's famous Bridle Path mansion (nicknamed "The Embassy") in Toronto.

It wasn't long before the post was deleted, but fans had already taken screenshots of their own, and they had lots to say about the apparent attempt at doxxing Toronto's chosen son.

Drake's address been on zillow and shit for 2 yrs now lol

Some people thought West had stooped too low, but many more — including Drake himself — found the post pretty funny, given how public the location of The Embassy has been, and for so long.

"Kanye didn't really leak Drake's address, that's public knowledge," noted one Twitter user in response to a screenshot of Ye's original post. "You can even Google 'Drake's House.' It's basically a tourist attraction when you're driving by Toronto now."

"No 'Leak,' it's common knowledge when they were building it, it was all over the news," wrote another. "Literally everyone in Toronto has passed by Drakes house at least once in their life," joked another fan still.

Drizzy has yet to publicly address the post, though he did post a video of himself laughing into the camera on Instagram Stories a short time later.

This marks only the latest spat in a longstanding public feud between the two award-winning rappers / producers / businessmen, and follows the release of a new Trippie Redd track featuring a controversial verse by Drake.

"All these fools I'm beefin' that I barely know/ 45, 44 (burned out), let it go. Ye ain't changin' sh*t for me, it's set in stone," says Drake on the song Betrayal, which dropped on Saturday.

Analysts believe that Drake was taking shots at Kanye for his age (44) in the verse, though the artist has not publicly confirmed this and almost certainly never will because that's not how diss tracks work.

Kanye posted a cryptic iMessage screenshot following the release of Trippie Redd's new song, conspicuously adding Drake's longtime nemisis Pusha T (also 44) to the group chat and including a photo of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker.

"I live for this," wrote West in that chat. "You will never recover. I promise you." 

Amusing as all of this is, many fans have been responding to both artists across various social media accounts to ask that they stop playing around and just release their damn albums already.

We've been waiting for Drizzy's sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, since its originally-scheduled release date in January of 2021. The most-recent iteration of Ye's Donda, meanwhile, was set to drop on July 23, but didn't.

It still hasn't dropped, even after two high-profile listening parties and several formal release date changes on Apple Music. A third listening party is set to be livestreaming from Chicago on August 26, after which West's manager promises that the album will finally come out.

The Style of Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Era

The New York Times 23 August, 2021 - 12:53pm

It’s a now familiar part of West’s album rollout strategy: clothes to match, or make, the mood. Given that nowadays he spends as much time focused on his fashion enterprises as his music (likely more), it’s unsurprising that shifts in those two creative areas move in parallel.

On this week’s Popcast, a conversation about West’s use of fashion as a signifier for musical evolution, the ways he has been alternately embraced and rejected by the fashion industry, and how musicians like Frank Ocean and Tyler, the Creator are walking in the path he carved.

Kanye Just Tried To Leak Drake's Toronto Home Address & Fans Aren't Having It

It looks like the feud between two popular rappers is still underway. Kanye took to Instagram, sharing a screenshot from Google Maps, which appeared to leak popular Toronto star Drake's address.

While the post has since been removed, fans were able to capture screenshots that clearly showed the Toronto icon's home address in the Bridle Path area.

However, if you're from Toronto, you can probably see how this plan backfired. Sharing Drizzy's address is the equivalent of sharing the CN Tower's location, both being popular tourist attractions that most people know about.

It seems that fans were quick to point out just that. "Everyone in Toronto knows where drake lives lmao I've passed right by that bih," wrote one user.

"Anyone from Toronto already knows where that man lives LMAO. But Kanye has definitely lost his marbles," wrote another.

Drake seemed to be completely unfazed by the stunt, even going as far as to share a video of himself driving around the 6ix in a convertible laughing.

Grab your popcorn, movie lovers: tickets for this year's Toronto's International Film Festival go on sale to the general public on September 6.

The globally-renowned film festival is kicking its in-person event next month starting Thursday, September 9, and finishing up just over a week later on September 18. TIFF's star-studded line-up has already been revealed, and there are going to be some truly spectacular shows to catch this coming season.

From the Hollywood all-star cast in the Broadway adaptation of Dear, Evan Hansen to the chilling psycho-thriller Last Night In Soho with Anya Taylor-Joy, there's something for everyone's movie tastes. Here is what you need to know before tickets go on sale.

In an announcement today, August 23, TIFF touched on what their vaccine policies will be and what festival-goers can expect at this year's event.

Instead of printed passes, attendees will have to show digital tickets from their phones. Rush tickets, which are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the discretion of venue staff, will also not be available this year.

There will be no concessions sold at most of TIFF's venues this year, with the exception of the festival's drive-in venues.

"As a result of the opening of the border and increased capacities in cinemas in Ontario, TIFF has added to its list of venues to accommodate a number of additional in-person Public and Press & Industry screenings," TIFF announced.

Press & Industry screenings will be held at the Scotiabank Theatre and TIFF Bell Lightbox, and public in-person screenings will have limited Press & Industry access. Public digital screenings will only be available to Canadian audiences.

Anyone interested in hitting up TIFF 2021 can buy tickets online, and there are a variety of start dates for when certain folks can grab theirs.

Those with a TIFF membership will have priority when it comes to buying tickets first. Leadership members can buy their tickets on August 26, while Platinum and Gold members can buy individual tickets for both in-person and digital events starting August 28. Silver and Bronze members will be able to buy tickets on August 29.

TIFF members in the Contributor's Circle and Members 365 can buy tickets on September 4, and then the rest of the general public can finally get theirs on September 6.

There are in-person, outdoor, drive-in, and digital screenings this year, and tickets are priced differently for them all.

Regular in-person screenings at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Roy Thomson Hall, the Visa Screening Room at the Princess of Wales Theatre, the Cinesphere Theatre at Ontario Place, and Scotiabank Theatre, will cost $25. Premium screenings will cost $40. When switched to online viewings, regular screenings will be $19 and premium screenings will come out to $26.

Drive-in viewings at Ontario Place Village, the Visa Skyline Drive-in, the RBC Lakeside Drive-In, and the West Island Open Air Cinema will range from $49 to $69 per car, depending on the number of people in the vehicle watching the film. Those opting for lawn access at these venues will pay $38 for two people.

All festival staff, audience members, and visitors coming into any of the festival venues will have to show proof of their fully vaccinated status, or provide proof that they have tested negative for COVID-19 within the last 48 hours.

Those visiting from outside Canada will need to provide COVID-19-related information electronically through the ArriveCAN app prior to arrival in Canada, as well as submit a quarantine plan in case border agents determine they do not meet the necessary requirements. They must be asymptomatic upon arrival and willing to participate in random COVID-19 testing.

"TIFF has taken great care and consideration in implementing these TIFF-specific protocols to mitigate risk to audiences and guests attending TIFF," Joana Vicente and Cameron Bailey, TIFF's co-heads, said in the announcement. "We have relied on the municipal and provincial medical direction and advice on rapid testing, and we expecting this will provide another level of clarity and comfort for all 2021 festival-goers."

There will also be other COVID-19 safety measures at this year's festival. Masks will be mandatory at all venues and those who can't wear masks due to health reasons will be provided with a face shield. If they refuse to wear the face shield, they will be denied entry into the festival and will receive a refund for their ticket.

The tournament had attendees from all over Canada.

Thousands of Canadians are now being urged to get tested for COVID-19 after potential exposure occurred at a basketball competition this month.

According to Durham Region Health, the warning applies to the attendees of the 43rd Annual Jane and Finch Classic tournament, which was held at the Playground Global Facility, 1313 Boundary Road, in Oshawa from August 3rd to 8th.

The health department has reportedly linked around 20 cases of COVID-19 to the event and is struggling to notify all players and spectators from Ontario and other provinces. So far, cases have been linked to Quebec, Peel, Toronto, and Durham.

"The Health Department is aware that there were potentially 7,000 people who attended this event over the five days," an excerpt from the report reads.

"We are reaching out through the media to help us make contact with anyone who may have attended this event," said Dr. Robert Kyle, Durham Region Medical Officer of Health. "It is very important that individuals who participated in this basketball tournament get tested as soon as possible."

Martino Manor is back in business this fall.

Fright fanatics, start warming your windpipes because Martino Manor is coming back this fall.

The iconic Toronto haunted manor and maze is a family affair, run by Fernando Martino, and located behind his family's restaurant Mama Martino's Pasta and Pizzeria Restaurant.

Martino told Narcity that Martino Manor will open the first Friday of October after having to remain closed last year due to COVID-19.

Despite the financial pressure of remaining closed last season, Martino says he is going to keep prices at $20 per ticket.

"I think I'm going to keep it at $20 a person. It's affordable," said Martino. "For people to combine the restaurant and the haunted attraction, it's a good night out, and you can easily go to the restaurant and the haunted house for under forty dollars."

While speaking with Martino last month, he divulged he was working on an addition to the tomb area, "That's going to be upgraded even more next year as well."

Address: 7 McIntosh Ave., Etobicoke, ON

Why You Need To Go: You can walk through a haunted maze and manor and grab a quick bite at the Martino family restaurant next door.

Kanye West Deletes Instagram Posts Except for Single Image of His Childhood Home

The home, located in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood, was posted without caption or comment.

According to Chicago’s WGN9, the home was purchased in the early 1980s and was sold by Kanye’s mother, Donda West, in 2004.

Real estate reporter Dennis Rodkin wrote in April 2020 that the home “went through a lot of trouble after that,” facing forclosure before being bought by artist and Chicago activist Rhymefest in 2016. Rhymefest wrote in 2016 that he intended to turn the space into a community arts incubator, building out a “state of the art recording studio, a curriculum space for @dondashouse and southside music museum.”

But those plans never materialized, with Rhymefest accusing West of “abandoning” the charity several years later.

According to Rodkin, West ultimately purchased the home in 2020 for about $225,000 USD.

It’s unclear what West’s recent Instagram posting represents, though some have speculated that it could have something to do with the release of the rapper’s highly-anticipated tenth studio album DONDAWest is hosting a third listening party at Chicago’s Soldier Field Stadium on August 26, after which his manager Abou “Bu” Thiam has assured the public that his album will “absolutely” be released.

Ahead of DONDA‘s upcoming release, take a closer look at the rapper’s forecasted next era of fashion.
